Colored Cocoa Butter: The Topic

Hello All,


I'm hoping someone can help. It may be hard to tell in the photos, but there are white specs in the colored cocoa butter (not on purpose). I use Chef Rubber and I find that it happens with all of my colors. I haven't used white in my spray gun in ages. Everything is in temper, releases well from the molds, has a nice shine, it just isn't an even, solid color. Oddly enough, if you look at the single blue bon bon when I was adding more cocoa butter to my spray gun I accidentally dripped in the mold and I sprayed over it. That drip has turned out solid in color with no speckles. 

 

I'm thinking it must be something with the way I'm spraying. Has anyone come across this issue or know how to prevent it? 

 

Much appreciated,

Caitlyn

Weird - probably a stupid question but are the colors the classic or one of the Jewel or other colors that have inclusions?

 

 

@Kerry BealI'm sorry, I'm just now seeing this! The colors are from the artisan collection. When I pour the cocoa butter into my spray gun there aren't any noticeable specks. Even from the back side, before I make the shell I don't notice anything unusual.
