Here's what you'll need to create your confection masterpiece.
- Fourth of July Cookie Confection Collection
- AirGenie Airbrush System
- Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting Tool
- Cookie Magnets
- Plastic Bottle with Dropper Tip
- Quadrant Masking Tool
- DecoPac Airbrush Food Coloring (Super Red, Navy Blue, Gold Shimmer)
- Glad Press'n Seal
- Paper Towels
First, cut a piece of Glad Press'n Seal to fit over the stencil. Flatten to remove any bubbles or wrinkles. Next, use the Gyro-Cut craft and hobby cutting tool to trim around the desired stencil elements.
Peel away the cut portion of the Press'n Seal.
The Stencil Genie is perfect for holding the stencil in place over the cookie. Use the Quadrant Masking Tools to shield the rest of the cookie from unwanted overspray.
Once your AirGenie Airbrush System is assembled and loaded with the first color, test out and adjust as needed the airflow on a stack of clean paper towels. Repeat this step before each cookie and color.
Apply each color in light, even coats.
First stencil element is complete!
Cookie magnets are perfect for holding the stencil flat against the cookie surface.
Airbrush the next stencil element.
Be sure to clean the airbrush tool between colors. First, rinse out the reservoir four or five times with clean water.
Repeat this once more with water and lastly again with grain alcohol or 100-proof vodka. This will ensure that all the liquid inside the tool evaporates and will prevent the next color from being diluted.
Proceed with the next color.
Stars and Stripes may be forever but these Fourth of July Confection Collection Cookies will disappear fast at your next Independence Day celebration! Visit www.confectioncouturestencils.com for more information.
