Video Tutorial for Salty Air Accent Cookie Stencil

Bring the perfect cookies to the beach or boat with the Salty Air Accent cookie stencils from Confection Couture Stencils! It pairs perfectly with the Thin Stripe Background Cookie Stencil. To decorate cookies just like in this tutorial you will need to following tools:

Salty Air Accent Stencil
Thin Stripe Background Stencil
Stencil Genie
Cookie Magnets
Quadrant Masking Tool
Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting Tool
Air Genie Airbrush System
DecoPac Airbrush Food Coloring
Plastic Bottle with Dropper Tip 3 pack

Start by mixing your Amerimist Airbrush Colors together in the plastic bottle dropper. Mix some Royal Blue and Sky Blue Amerimist Food Colorant, add it to your airbrush, then test out the rate of flow on a piece of paper towel.

Load your accent stencil into the stencil genie and isolate a design using the Quadrant Masking tool. Place cookie magnets around the edges of the design and begin to airbrush. Slowly build the color using your airbrush. Once the design is fully stenciled remove the cookie magnets and lift the stencil genie off the surface. Use the quadrant masking tools to isolate and airbrush the next design.

Next isolate the center of background stencil with a circular mask the size of the accent behind it. Use a sheet of Glad Press n' Seal pressed firmly to the surface of the background stencil along with the Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting tool. Once you have cut out the circular design gently peel off the surrounding Glad Press n' Seal wrap.

Place the masked off background stencil into the Stencil Genie and center the circular mask at the center of the next cookie. Place the cookie magnets around the edges of the cookie and on top of the mask. Lightly build the color using the airbrush on the surface of the cookie. Airbrush the background onto your first cookie, lift off the cookie magnets, then stencil the rest of your circular masked backgrounds.

Now that all of your designs have been stenciled in blue Amerimist Food Colorant, let's stencil the rest of the design in red Amerimist Food Colorant. Rinse the blue Amerimist Food Colorant off the background stencil with water, peel off the circle mask, and dry the Thin Stripe background stencil. Press another sheet of Glad Press n' Seal to the Thin Stripe Background stencil, place over the accent stencil, and cut a mask around the design beneath. Peel off the surrounding plastic wrap so that only the central mask remains. Place the background stencil into the Stencil Genie, put cookie magnets around the edges and on the mask, then build the color of the background.

Next airbrush red stencil accents at the center of your masked off, blue thin stripe background stencils. Use the quadrant masking tool to isolate the accent stencil and airbrush the design onto the cookie in red Amerimist. After stenciling the compass design in red, move onto the anchor. Airbrush the anchor in red before switching to brown for the rope. Clear the red colorant from the airbrush and load it with brown Amerimist Food Coloring. Test the color and rate of flow from the airbrush onto a piece of paper towel before airbrushing the rope design.

Once you airbrush the cookies they are ready for your company! To give yourself room to stencil the center of each cookie for your accent designs, use Glad Press n' Seal and the Gyro-Cut cutting tool on your background stencils. Be sure to plan out the colors for each element in advance so you know what design to stencil and when.
