Hey everyone, I saw these cookies online and I am in love with them! I actually need to make star cookies for an upcoming order and wanted to make these same ones. What is the best way to do these on white fondant covered cookies? I have Americolor airbrush colors both in matte (the “regular” set I guess) and the pearl sheen set. Can I combine say regular black with the silver pearl sheen to get a sparkly black look?
I have no idea. Why not give it a try on a piece of scrap fondant before you start decorating the cookies.
It's hard to say for sure but those look to be to be iced w/royal run-in/flood rather than fondant. If so they probably are splattered. Some of them look to have had sprinkles dropped on them while the flood was fresh...still wet. No reason to not try something similar with fondant.
My order is for fondant cookies but with free design so that’s why I wanted to try it. I agree some of them look sprinkled while wet but the splatter ones I coud probably do on fondant. Ill just have to experiment!
there's a wood finishing technique called fly splatter where you take a toothbrush and flick the bristles onto whatever -- just a random thought for you
K8memphis...I’ve used the fly splatter technique, using toothbrush, silicone brush, and the back of a fork. All give different type of splatter.
june, yes -- lots of fun -- seems too easy but the results are so cool too
I used to do the toothbrush spatter thing on my oil paints and I have tiny, little flicks of dried oil paint all over my dining room table, haha.
I’ve only tried it with a small paintbrush so far and wasn’t too impressed with the results..I’ll have to try with a toothbrush next..on another note though - I feel like I use a lot of luster dust and lemon extract when painting on fondant cookies, as in I feel like I’m continuously adding extract to keep the “paint” from drying out! Is this normal?
HajraK I use both alcohol and lemon extract with lustre dust. The lemon extract definitely lasts longer. With alcohol, it evaporates quite a bit. But they both evaporate, so this is normal.
sandra, that's funny --
yeah, you need a firm flat bristle that will splatter well to get the effect in the picture
I was not even aware of them, Kate, until we moved and the new dining room allowed sunlight to fall directly on the table. I was horrified, but oh well, when you are a painter, stuff happens, lol. I once had my cat jump up on the table and land right in the middle of my palette of oil paints. Of course she paniced and immediately jumped down, ran across my lap, across the dining room carpet (pale blue), across the kitchen (hardwood) and into the bedroom (again, pale blue). Guess which color was on her feet???? BLACK! Talk about a cleanup job!
oh my goodness! poor kitty poor sandra -- what a clean up --
It was a whole lot more "poor Sandra" than it was "poor kitty"! She ran around so much, most of the paint was transferred to me and the floor. I cleaned her up first, which was really easy compared to everything else. To this very day (and this was 25 years ago) my sweatsuit still has remnants of her tracks, lol.
hahahaha -- too funny!
Those cookies are fantastic. They look like they are airbrushed before the royal icing spatters. Great work.
