- Plastic Bottle with Dropper Tip 2oz 3p

Once you have chosen your cookies (or created your own using cookie cutters), assemble the AirGenie Airbrush System.
The cap from the Plastic Bottle with Dropper fits perfectly on your Amerimist Airbrush Food Coloring.
Load the airbrush tool with the first color.
You can load a second airbrush tool by using a large measuring cup to hold the tool upright. This saves time when switching between colors.
Next, load the first stencil in the Stencil Genie and use cookie magnets to secure hold the stencil flat against the cookie surface.
As always, test the airflow of the stencil tool on a clean wad of paper towels (or white paper) prior to airbrushing your cookie.
Use a long needle or chopstick to hold down any portion of the stencil that is lifting slightly from the cookie.
Apply the color in light, even coats.
Next, rotate the stencil genie (with stencil) 90° and apply more black to create plaid background.
Then, switch to silver sheen to create a shimmery effect.
For the center design, use the Quadrant Masking Tool to protect areas of the cookie from unwanted overspray.
Repeat the airbrushing technique.
Continue on to the next design.
For more intricate designs, use Glad Press’n Seal to mask off smaller elements of the design.
Apply light pressure to remove any bubbles or wrinkles.
Use the Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting Tool to trim around smaller design elements.
Peel away the excess Press’n Seal.
Be creative when combining different designs.
