Start out prepping the background stencil by masking off a perfect circle at the center with Glad Press n' Seal using a Gyro-Cut Craft Cutting Tool. Various circles from cups to shot glasses work well to trace this design. Peel off the surrounding Glad Press n' Seal and you will be left with a perfect circle at the center. Place the background thin line stripe stencil into the Stencil Genie and place the circle at the center of the of the cookie. Load Amerimist food coloring into the airbrush then test the flow rate on a piece of paper towel before stenciling the design onto the cookie. Place cookie magnets around the outside of the cookie to hold the stencil flat to the cookie surface. From 6 to 8 inches above the cookie surface, angle the nozzle straight at the cookie surface and start airbrushing. I like using the Air Genie at the full flow rate but you may find a different flow rate that works better for you. Start lightly building the color on the surface of the cookie, overlapping each coat so that it blends flawlessly. Once the color is solid, remove the magnets and lift the stencil genie off the cookie. Place the stencil genie and magnets on each cookie one after another to replicate the design. To clean out the color cup of the airbrush there must first be no food coloring left. Fill the empty airbrush with vodka and run it through the airbrush onto a piece of paper towel. Run a color cup of vodka through the airbrush about 3 times or until it comes out clear. Water works too but vodka dries faster. Once the airbrush is dry, add red Amerimist food coloring to the color cup. Place the accent stencil into the stencil genie and use two quadrant masking tools to isolate each stencil design. Place the magnets around the cookie accent and start building the color through the design. Remove the magnets, reposition the masking tools, and airbrush the accent onto the next cookie. Clear out the airbrush with vodka once more before adding the next color of food coloring. Isolate the accent stencil with two quadrant masking tools and slowly build the color on the surface of the cookie. Once the color of the design is complete, remove the cookie magnets, lift off the stencil genie, and reposition the quadrant masking tool for your next cookie. Once all of your cookies are stenciled they are ready to present and serve!
