I have two questions about pouring melted chocolate into molds for lollypops.  First, if you are making pops with multiple colors (a pumpkin with a green stem or a white ghost holding a pumpkin for example), do you put the smaller color into the mold first or do you paint it on after the pop is molded?  I've done it both ways and each has good and bad points.  Second, when pouring the chocolate into a rather intricate mold, how do I make sure there are no little air bubbles?  I've tried shaking, banging, etc. but still have some holes.  Thanks for any ideas.

 To pop the bubbles I tap the mold on the counter and if some remain I just use a toothpick to get rid of them.

I paint the colors first let it set a bit and then pour the chocolate. I have the wilton candy making book its great, you should check it out at the library.

It is way easier to brush the chocolate in first.  Yep and just tap mold on the counter top a few times ^_^ I guess that is all i can help with, but if you need anymore help with anything chocolate, ive had so many chocolate classes at school i think i could help.

Leen are you using "chocolate" melts or real chocolate? There are sources for died cocoa butter which your can spray paint on and brush paint on.
