Painting Details in Lollipop Molds


Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.
Makes: Each candy serves 1.
Skill Level: None

Painting Details in Lollipop Molds is rated 4.0625 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It looks SO much easier online than it was in the kitchen for me. I suppose it's a matter of just how steady your hand is. Pouring candy into molds with no detail is easy as pie! Even swirled candies, which I use on my cakes, are simple. But painting details is proving a challenge for me. One thing I've learned from experience is NOT to use cheap brushes you buy from a discount store. If you're going to make details, you want a very fine tipped brush so that it's not so sloppy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I just started doing this for the fun of it but have been taking orders for the past 9 months now. Its fun except when quantities are increased at the last minute and deadlines are moved up. I have done most of the major holidays and baby showers galore. I got good quality very fine brushes and sometimes work under magnifying lamp. Patience is the key!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have always had a hard time with this one. I know I don't have a steady hand, so they always turn out sloppy to me. It is so easy to just fill them with one color, but then they are nearly as creative as I would like them to be. Practice practice practice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did candy molds for a Baby Shower and I had to paint details on most of them. It was difficult at first, but after many tries I finally got the hang of it. The end result was amazing they turned out beautiful and everyone at the shower loved them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My daughter and I have begun this as a tradition every holiday to make candies with the molds. I find the details a little difficult to do. I have gotten better by cooling each layer of candy, but even still, it is not a very pretty sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do this mostly for Christmas candy. the effect is beautiful. You need to be sure each color is set before adding another color. Be sure that your paint brush is rather stiff - it makes it easier to "paint" fine lines and small areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my Grandkids favorite to do. Once you get the hang of it and make sure to cool each level of coloring, they turn out fine. Lollipops and chocolate covered prezels are a big hit here!
