Video Release: "Thank You" Prettier Plaques Stenciled Cookie

I’m back this week with another of my Prettier Plaques stenciled cookies using what I think is my new all-time favorite stencil set – “Thank You”! In addition to showing you how to use this set, I demonstrate the concept of “conscious color commingling”. (LOL, say that three times fast!) By this, I mean purposeful overspraying beyond stencil boundaries to encourage the blending of neighboring colors. Overspray creates unexpected shades where colors overlap, especially when using water-based colorings, and results in a more natural and nuanced look, particularly in stencils with organic designs. I also show how to extend this concept onto wafer paper to make dainty butterfly embellishments for use on cookies, cupcakes, and even cakes!

P.S. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel. Thank you!
