Smudging transfer sheets

4 posts in this topic

Left vs right, mostly non-smudged vs mostly smudged.  Sigh.

Why does this happen?  Was my chocolate too warm?  I painted the corners with a chocolatey brush to prevent air bubbles, but that was only in the corners and I certainly didn't linger with the paintbrush.  Ideas?

It almost looks like the sheet moved as there's a faint first impression from the image, but I may be wrong.

Raises the question as to whether they were completely flat initially.

Thanks both.  It kind of does look like the sheet moved, but I'm not sure how that would've happened (I cut the sheet so that it was laying flat when I attached the magnetic bottom to it).  Also I should've specified that all the chocolates in the picture above were from a single casting in that mold, so if the transfer moved then wouldn't all the images be fuzzy?
