Lovin' a Lobster!

My first adventrue with Modeling Chocolate!! I had a blast sculpting this lobster for my dad's birthday out of white modeling chocolate. It was so fun to work with. I think I would do much better with something a bit more cartoon-like, but I am very pleased with the results. The one thing I didn't like was the lobster's "paint job." Because my little one is allergic to food dyes I had to make the Lobster white and then paint it with water based fruit extract dyes. Chocoloate is so oily the water based stains kinda beaded up. If I were doing this for a non-allergic client then I would have kneaded the gel color into the white chocolate and the painted on the darker shading.
