Today Courtney is using our painting powders, Elite Colors and The Color Solution to create the BEST edible paint on the market! But first, let's talk about the versatility of the Elite Color Collection. As you see here, Courtney begins by coloring her chocolate with our Sincerely, Holly Spring Collection - which are, Elite Colors. 

COLORING CHOCOLATE

Elite Colors are fat soluble and will color your white chocolate. Master Elites, however, will not as they are not fat soluble!  Keep in mind, since Elites are ACTIVATED food colors, it will take more of the product to achieve your desired tones when tinting ingredients, including your white chocolate. Here you see Courtney coloring 4 oz of melted white chocolate with between 1/8th tsp - 1/4 tsp of each Sincerely, Holly Spring Color. What you will achieve are incredibly beautiful pastel tones of chocolate! Check out THIS COLLECTION for our best Elite Colors for coloring white chocolate.

PAINT ON CHOCOLATE

Now, let's learn how to paint on chocolate! The Color Solution is the answer to ALL confectionary painting! Use this amazing dilution solution with matte painting powders or metallics! That would be Elite Colors or Sterling Pearls! Today, Courtney is using Elite Colors. 

Creating the perfect consistency is KEY when painting onto any confection. You want to start with a very small amount of Elite Powder and add The Color Solution drop by drop, until you achieve the perfect painting consistency. It will remind you of acrylic paint! The amazing perk to using Color Solution instead of alcohol for confectionary painting are the gums inside of it ... it gives you a MUCH LONGER working time than straight vodka or ever clear.  However, all you have to do is keep adding small drops of Color Solution if the paint begins to dry too much during your process. 

Once you have the perfect painting consistency, simply begin painting ... you will find the smoothest finish with Elite Colors and Color Solution. It will take 3-5 minutes for it to fully dry on your confection, but once it is dry - the Color Solution locks in! 

EDIBLE PAINTING PRODUCTS

To create your edible paint, you'll need a list of products: a good PAINT BRUSH SET, palette, The Color Solution and of course - your colors! Again, Elite Colors (not Master Elites) and Sterling Pearls are best when creating your edible paint! All products on this project have been listed below!
