Well it's sideways, but here is another mitten, this one is two coats of red cocoa butter followed by a brushed layer of white chocolate. If you compare the two mittens, this one is lighter in colour, even though both figures were made with the same batch of red cocoa butter. It's the white choc. background that gives it this effect
Now here's what one layer of coloured cocoa butter looks like, it's very thin and translucent. This is a "watered down" coloured cocoa butter, thinned out with plain cocoa butter. With this kind of an effect, I first put on the fish's spine, fins and eyes with dark choc, then a wash of thinned red, followed by a wash of thinned yellow. Where the two colours overlap you get orange. I only have the basic primary fat soluable powdered colours, and make up what I need. I used both white and milk chocolates over the colours, giving it a mottled appearance. These are ultra-cheap thermo-formed plastic molds, rescued from a bargain-bin in a Chinatown emporium, they're normally used for gelatin desserts and very disposable.
