Various special effects may be used with the basic shell-molding technique to enhance the appearance of the finished product. While the possibilities are endless, the technique is essentially the same: apply colors or transfer sheets to the inside of the mold before filling it. The result is high-gloss shell-molded pieces that exhibit contrasting colors and patterns. These are some of the most visually striking confections made.
