Airbrush Stencil Classes
It’s the moment every cookie decorator has been waiting for: CookieCon tickets went on sale Monday evening! Are you one of the lucky ones going? Did you get into your favorite Pre-CookieCon classes? Are you like me and have a countdown on your phone? I’m so excited about this event that I even have a countdown on my website! But wait! Did you know I’m teaching a class before CookieCon in May?? Click here for the details on that class.
I’ve had numerous questions regarding stenciling with an airbrush and with royal icing, in fact, it’s one of the main reasons I started teaching airbrush stencil classes. I know that we often have a fear of doing things the first time, especially when we’ve never done anything like it. When you take my airbrush stencil class, you will get hands-on experience using stencils with both an airbrush and with royal icing, taking the mystery out of the process. I know that you will love using stencils in your work as much as I do! Using stencils in your cookie decorating is beneficial in so many ways. One of those benefits being the fact that it is a total time saver. I did 50 of these in one afternoon!
It’s also a way to add life to a background of a cookie. I’ll tell you a little secret… In my free time (well, when I had free time) I scrapbook. When I decorate cookies my inner-scrapper comes out. In scrapbooking, I search for just the right patterned background paper for the pages I’m working on. That’s what I do when I want to use a background stencil. I want that cookie to be it’s own page. Not every cookie needs a background, but some just become complete when one is used. Look at the following cookies to compare.
The background stencil just completes the look!
During my airbrush/stencil classes, I not only talk in more detail about choosing the right stencil, but also show you how to prevent this from happening:
Underspray… it can seriously prevent a cookie from giving you the look you want.
I’ll be teaching you why this happens and how to fix it:
I’ll also show you how to troubleshoot issues with your airbrush. You will also be taking an airbrush apart and putting it back together.
I’ll share all of my tricks and favorite gadgets for airbrushing with stencils, and then we will decorate cookies with stencils using both airbrushing techniques and royal icing. Not only will you leave the class with decorated cookies to take home, but also the knowledge to go out into the world and make beautiful, stenciled cookies! Oh, and you get a really cool swag bag too.
