CB sticking to the mold could also mean the chocolate you're using was a little cool or not properly pre-crystallised as well.

Also, your room is quite warm.  I prefer around 64-66F, or 18-19C when possible.

So he says it’s over-crystalized but tells you to spray cooler?

🤔

No read again, hè says  the fragments like that are from over tempered, “or not tempered and thats where you are”

Try tempering your cocoa butter by heating as you have, cool to 27 or so, then heat back up to 32 or so.
