I use vodka - paint - take a drink - paint - take a drink. lol I use vodka. I like the way it evaporates quickly.

what coloring do you use? Is it made special for candy or can you use the gel colors for the icing? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I really don't know much about chocolate decorating. Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry, Jeanne G, yes luster dust. And since the pieces of candy are cooled in the fridge, I didn't know if the condensation (if any) would mess up the luster dust.

I am so glad you started this thread, CJR4LSU. I bought candy molds yesterday for an upcoming event (9 months from now!! My son's high school graduation) and I want to do drama masks candy in gold and silver. But I had no idea how to. As always, someone else has done it before! Thanks! I am going to practice today....

I wait until they aren't cold and paint on them dry. You can still use the vodka ... just drink it.

Sorry, I started this thread and then haven't had time to respond....
For those asking about the vodka, you mix small amounts of the luster dust and vodka, and then paint that on. I did make my treasure cest mold, but haven't assembled the pieces and haven't painted them yet. I was just mainly playing around, but will post when I have it done (hopefully in the next day or two).....

sorry to ask again but no one answered - are there special color gels for candy or can you use the cake color gels? Thanks.

When painting on (chocolates, fondant, etc) you can use luster dust mixed with vodka. I have also used the regular Wilton gel colors mixed with clear vanilla when painting on fondant pieces, but figured that would not work on these chocolate pieces. (Sorry I didn't see your question earlier.)
