Here's what you'll need:

What you need


The first step, of course, is to bake and ice all the cookies that you will need!

Shading the Borders

DecoPac Airbrush Food Coloring is perfect for projects like this. For the shaded border, shake your bottle of Bronze Shimmer and pour 4-5 drops into the reservoir of the AirGenie airbrush tool. Test out the color on a spare cookie or white sheet of paper prior to airbrushing if desired.

Lightly spray the edge of the cookie, using a slight sweeping motion and rotating it as you move to achieve even coverage all around. Once finished, place the cookies aside.

Mixing Colors

For the Brown elements of the cookies, mix Harvest Brown with a little bit of Honey and Super Red until the right shade is achieved. You can mix them in a dropper bottle, which comes with a dropper tip. Once mixed, shake the bottle and pour 4-5 drops into the reservoir of the AirGenie airbrush tool. Test out the color on a spare cookie or white sheet of paper. Add more of any of the colors as needed until you achieve the desired shade.

To mask off intricate design elements, cut a piece of Glad Press'n Seal roughly the size of the stencil and place it over the top, pressing it into place to remove any bubbles or wrinkles.

Now, take a Gyro-Cut craft and hobby cutting tool and trim around the desired element - in this case the "STAY WILD" text and the beams shooting above the mountains. Turn the blade sideways and use it to lift the corner of the cut plastic. Then peel it away leaving everything else covered.

Preparing to Stencil

Separate the two portions of you Stencil Genie and place the thicker side down, magnets facing up. Next, place the stencil over the top with the chosen design  centered in the middle of the square.

Place a Quadrant Masking Tool above and below the design to protect those areas of the cookie from overspray. Next, place the Screen Genie over the top and lock everything into place using the remaining piece of the Stencil Genie.


Place assembly over cookieCookie magnetsStacks of three or fourTest flow and adjust as neededUse chopstick or long needleStay Wild

Place the entire assembly over the cookie, lining up the design where you'll want the color to go. To help keep the stencil flat against the cookie surface, use stacks of cookie magnets, in three or four, and place them strategically where they do the most good.

Prior to airbrushing each color and cookie, always test out the spray on a stack of paper towels. Adjust the flow as needed by turning the knob on top of the unit.

Apply the color using light, even coats. Use a long needle or chopstick to further press down the edges of the stencil as you go.

Once finished, lift away the magnets and then the tool assembly, and then put the cookie aside to dry.

Cleaning the Airbrush Tools

To clean the stencils and stencil tools in between cookies, rinse them off and dry completely using either clean paper towels or a lint-free dish towel.

To clean the airbrush tool between colors, rinse out the reservoir 3-4 times, then reattach the hose and fill the reservoir with water. Run the tool on full power until empty. Repeat this step twice more, once again with water and then a third time using an inexpensive 100-proof vodka.

Next, mix some Navy Blue and Silver Shimmer, in roughly equal parts, to achieve the muted blue for the next stencil elements.
