My seniors love working in chocolate.  These are going to be some treasured Christmas gifts.

Thanks, Nolan.

My class is getting good enough for me to just teach a technique and let them choose what they will paint with it.

Fabulous, it's nice when your students get to that point where they understand the basics and you can concentrate on building their abilities.

 :heeha:   Congratulations to the class! Wonderful paintings.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Good thing I wasn't in that class... they'd never have finished their paintings. I could not have kept my fingers out of the chocolate pots!  >:D    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Maybe I should mention that I put a bit of bleach in the mix to prevent molding. Nolan.
