how to avoid oil stains on paper in candy domes

You have to be careful when you use unwrapped food or candy in a candy dome project. If you don’t put a protective layer between the food and the back cardstock, you could end up with oil stains as shown in the photo. That was after only 10 hours and it continued to get worse.

Never fear – there is an easy solution. When you fill the dome and turn it over, simply cover all the food with plastic wrap, creating a barrier so any oils or moisture doesn’t reach the paper. (This is shown in the video at 2 mins 27 secs)
