"I do have some of the 'proper' sheets, but tend to do use the overheads most for the experiments. I add white coloured cocoa butter to some colours - ie titanium dioxide - to make them opaque rather than white chocolate."

Hi Christina,

I"m working on producing my own transfer sheets.  Currently I print on treated acetate sheets but I'm working on screen printing them.  I read your old posts about this and wanted to know if you ever had any success sourcing supplies.

Debra

Welcome to The Chocolate Life. Have you ever worked with Paul at Chef Rubber? They have lots of mold-making supplies and tools, equipment, and ingredients for making chocolates.
