Finishing Techniques

For really smooth casted treats, try sanding down the surface of your 3d print with fine sanding paper. The silicone putty captures every detail it touches and adds that typical texture found in most FDM 3d printed parts. It almost looks as if the chocolate was 3d printed with the ridged textures!
