COLORED COCOA BUTTER COLLECTIONS
7 COLLECTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM
The Artisan Collection was the first to come intoexistence. This line was made up of our OG 8 startercolors: Crimson Red, Cardinal Red, Sunrise Orange,Gilded Yellow, Aureolin Yellow, Jade Green, IndigoBlue, and Alabaster White.
As our company grew so did our colors! The demand for more and more color options led us to be the leading manufacturer of colored cocoa butter with a variety of collections to choose from.
WHAT IS COLORED COCOA BUTTER?
Colored cocoa butter is a food coloring most commonly used in chocolate and pastry. This colorant is fat based and is made up of ultra refined, organic, deodorized, kosher, plain cocoa butter blended with Natural or FD&C colors.
These colors can be used to tint chocolate, or effectively paint on a variety of confections.
We like to think of these as an edible medium. Paint that can be used on chocolate, fondant, sugar, etc.
HOW IS COLORED COCOA BUTTER USED?
How you use your cocoa butter colors is completely up to you! To give you an idea, some of the most common ways they are applied are by utilizing an airbrush gun or painting brushes.
If you are just starting out, we suggest getting comfortable with painting cocoa butter colors with brushes, or using the finger technique to create designs.
Other methods of applying color and texture include using sponges, solid pieces of chocolate, or toothbrushes for splatter effect. Don’t feel limited to use certain tools, your imagination is the limit, and the more creative you get the more fun the process is.

Being the OG line, the Artisan Collection is pretty much the go-to and trusted line for many chocolatiers and pastry chefs. Chef needing bold, Vibrant, strong, opaque color, this is your crew!

ORIGINAL COCOA BUTTER COLORS
It all started with 8
Airbrushing with your cocoa butter? Let us recommend a higher horse power compressor and a larger nozzle tip to help avoid any clogging. It’s a well known fact that cocoa butter will solidify as it cools down, so… you may want to keep a few things handy, like a heating pad, or heat gun to help keep the nozzle tip warm while working with an airbrush. To help keep your cocoa butter colors in a liquid state, you can use a cocoa butter warming cabinet, or a candle warmer/hot plate that will go as low as 87F/30C.
Opaque Vibrant Colors + Shimmer
We’re pretty sure if this line ever went away we would be met with a lot of sad, disappointed confectioners and pastry chefs! The Jewel colored cocoa butter is the treasured sister collection to the Artisan line. What is the main difference?
Yes, this collection will literally shimmer and shine and add a luxurious look to anything that it is applied on. Just like the Artisan Collection, the Jewel will provide a bright, bold, opaque color with an added shimmer, giving your product a delicate sparkling finish.
Opaque Vibrant Colors + Luster
DECOR- short for : Decoration
The Decor collection was created to be used as a decorative addition to showpieces, display items and other non-consumable creations adding a luster or satin finishing touch of pizzaz.
This line was born when chocolate and pastry competitions were really hot in the industry. With many chocolatiers using colors on their showpieces this line was made to help provide a rich radiance.
One of the main differences between the Jewel and Decor collection is the amount of shimmer. Think of the Jewel collection but on shimmer steroids.
a delicate sparkling finish
Sheer Pearlescent Luster
The Pearl Collection is another one of our original collections! This one is known to cause some confusion from time to time. The finished look with these is a sheer off white color, and when turned the reflection will magically show off a pearly color.It really is like magic! Unlike every other collection, these colors are available in only 7 colors.
PLUS it’s 100% natural cocoa butter color.
Vibrant Colors of Nature
Inspired by nature and the history of Meso America, the Natural Collection is derived from natural sources like, vegetables, herbs, fruits, everything natural that earth has gifted us.
The Natural Collection are cousins to the Artisan collection. Same, but different. The main difference is: naturally sourced color.
This line can be used to paint, color, and airbrush, just like the others. Keep in mind because these are naturally derived colors, the pigment will not be as bright and vibrant as you would find in FD&C pigments. You may also want to consider keeping your naturally colored product out of direct light, as this may cause some of the pigment to fade.
The Zen Collection was born in en era where the world was everything but Zen. Inspired by nature’s neutral calming colors, we decided to take it up a notch and add shimmer! Making this the cousin line to the Jewel Collection.
This colored cocoa butter collection is also made from natural pigments derived from fruits, vegetables, herbs, etc.
Natural Semi Opaque
Imagine taking freeze dried fruits, and grinding them down into a fine powder and mixing it with cocoa butter. Actually, that’s what we did!
We took our fruit powders and decided to mix them with our cocoa butter to create the Infused Collection! This line of colored cocoa butter is the most different from our other lines!
The most obvious reasons being taste and smell! The colors represent their fruit flavor, for example one of the red colors represents strawberry.
Food for thought: While these won’t impart an intense fruit flavor to your pastry or confections, they will add an extra layer to the sensory experience of working with color.
These colors do best when applied with a spray gun, for a velvet effect on chocolates and pastry. Airbrushing with this line may make your gun clog up, since this is a much thicker consistency. Can also be used to paint!
