All I have are white choco melts. Need red and blue. I have tint for candy will that work? Trying to do a color transfer.

yes candy tint will work. any coloring thats oil based can be used with chocolate. So the wilton paste colors are not oil base so they would not work. but oil based will. I think wilton makes them in smaller sized containers. You can tell by looking at the coloring if it is oil based. gluck

I use candy color for tinting chocolate as it is oil based.

Yes, they will work. You have to use the candy colors (oil-based, water-based with cause the chocolate to sieze up) or if you have powder color available, that will work as well.

you can aslo use petal dust mixed into a paste with canola oil ....works great and it also saves buying different types of colours.

I only use powdered colors for coloring chocolate. I don't have a problem with the flecks--humm.. maybe you need to sift the color? Maybe stir more, have your chocolate warmer?

I used regular colorings on the baby bottle here: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1791124

Americolor pink, and Wilton brown.
