Something like this: https://www.arttoart.net/mont-marte-foam-brushes

 

Trim to the right shape / size. Insert in Dremel (somehow). Spray mould. Zip the Dremel + sponge in each cavity, leave to set.

 

I saw an Instagram video of someone doing it with a drill as well.

A small foam brush from a art supply/hobby store.  Trimmed to the size of the cavities in your mold.....the ones I use have a handle on them, no Dremel needed.  I just spin the brush in the mold/cavity by hand.   Quick, easy and painless

@keychris Thank you!

 

I use a drill at the moment but was wondering if there was anything easier. I guess a dremel will work too. 

 

@RobertM Thank you! I will check out what sponges we have here.

Bob beat me to mentioning such sponges. Here is a link to sponges available on Amazon (it's U.S. Amazon, but they should be available in other countries as well). This is what was used in Andrey Dubovik's online course: spin one or two colors in a mold, then airbrush another color as background. The effect with a sponge is not as uniform as the Dremel will provide.

      I've read some older threads on here about keeping your cocoa butter warm in a dehydrator. We picked up a NutriChef PKFD32 which was the closest we could find to a recommended one (2016/2018) and none of our bottles fit. Which had us ask--are people putting their bottles preset in here or are you using cups/transferring and cleaning your bottles over and over? Also if the PKFD32 isn't what we should be using, is there one generally people like now?
       
      We've grown up from cheap airbrushes to the Grex line and we're attempting to get much more serious about our airbrush techniques. It's been long enough. Any thoughts, tips, tricks, or considerations are greatly appreciated.

      Hello everyone!
       
      Id like your advise about freezing bonbons. 
       
      Lets say i would start to freeze my bonbons now in the summer for Christmas. Would they last for such an extended period of time?
      Also using natural colouring, would the colour remain as good when i open them up after a couple of months?
       
      Would be great to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter  
      Thank you!

      Hey guys!
       
      Ive been having some difficulty with Valhrona Milk 38%. It doesn't seem to temper like any other milk chocolate. 
      I melt the chocolate to 45C and then using the seeding technique i drop the temp down to 30C. 
      When at 30C it seems tempered but after a few minutes i start to see bad tempering results. 
       
      Is there something in particular about this chocolate that i should know about?

      My supplier decided that cocoa butter is now special order so I had to buy a case. And now I have an excessive amount of cocoa butter, anyone need any?  
       
      Cacao Barry cocoa butter pistoles with a best by date of April 2021   $66 for the 3 kg tub or $22 per kg plus shipping.
