You won't need fireworks to light up your next gathering when you bring out Confection Couture's Statue of Liberty and USA Confection Collection!
What you will need:
- USA Accent Cookie Stencil with Cookie Cutter
- Land of the Free Cookie Stencil
- Stars Background Cookie Stencil
- Hexagon Plaque Cookie Cutter
- 3"x5" Rectangle Shaped Cookie Cutter
- 4" Circle Shaped Cookie Cutter
- DecoPac Airbrush Food Coloring
- Super Red
- Navy Blue
- Malibu Blue
- AirGenie Airbrush system
- Stencil Genie
- Quadrant Masking Tool
- Gyro-Cut craft and hobby cutting tool
- Cookie magnets
Prior to loading the AirGenie airbrush system, shake each bottle of DecoPac Airbrush Food Coloring. You only need three to five drops each time you load the airbrush tool.
Grab the first stencil.
The Stencil Genie works great to hold the stencil in place over top of the each cookie.
Use the Quadrant Masking Tool to protect other areas of the cookie from overspray.
Combine the stencil, Stencil Genie, and Quadrant Masking Tool.
Place the Stencil Genie over your cookie. You can use a long needle or similar device to help hold down elements of the stencil that may tend to lift, especially near the rounded edges of the cookie.
Apply the color in light, even coats, making sure to hold the airbrush tool at a 90° to the cookie surface.
And just like that, the first cookie is complete!
It's time for cookie #2.
You'll want to isolate the "U" and the "A" for this part.
Glad Press'n Seal works great for isolated smaller elements of the stencils.
Cut an appropriate size piece and place onto the stencil. Next smooth out the Press'n Seal to remove any wrinkles or bubbles.
Use cookie magnets to help press the stencil flat against the cookie surface.
Once these two letters are complete, place this cookie aside and allow to dry.
Repeat the above steps for other elements and colors.
Move on to the next cookie. As much as possible, airbrush one color at a time. This will limit the number of times you need to clean the airbrush tool.
You're finished with Navy Blue for now, so let's move on to Super Red!
But first, be sure to clean out your airbrush tool by rinsing out the reservoir with water several times, then running water through it with the AirGenie turned on full power, and finally once again with grain alcohol or 100-proof vodka
Now you can mask off and complete the "S" in "USA".
Place your flag design aside for now.
Thanks to the Quadrant Masking Tool, you can cut out elements of multiple designs.
Afterwards, simply mask off the trimmed element you're not using at that moment.
Then, move the masking tool to the opposite design for the next cookie.
To add some flare, airbrush some random stars onto the background of the cookies using all three colors!
