There are three basic methods for adding effects to molded confections: airbrushing, brushing, and applying dry luster color. Airbrushing is a quick and efficient method, but it requires specialty products and equipment. Brushing is a more time-consuming technique, but it can yield different and interesting results depending on the tool used to apply the medium to the mold. Finally, applying luster color, a specialty product, creates a singular effect not achievable with any other product.
