Today I have a very special treat. One of my favorite cookie bloggers, Lizy B Bakes is here for a visit. As a long time fan, I was pretty excited to see what Lizy would send my way. Once again, she knocked my socks off. Follow along as Lizy shares her awesome technique for creating antiqued Halloween label cookies.
Hi. My name’s Lizy B and I am a label-a-holic. It’s true. Well….wait. That makes me sound all organized and efficient. Not so much.
Of course, every little thing that I love to collect eventually becomes a cookie!
- clear alcohol
- sponge brush
- dried crushed royal icing
- sugar cookies that have been covered with flood icing and dried completely
Spoon some dried icing into your liquid and stir until dissolved. This was chocolate brown and a little black that I had left over from another project. I spread it out on parchment until it dried, then crushed it up (the dried icing has a more muted look than straight food coloring, but that will work also).
This one even had some flicking and dripping! Come to think of it, this would have been a great project for the kiddos!
The ribbon plaque was the only shape I was a bit more careful with. I wanted to make sure the edges of the ribbon looked really old. Because you end up using more liquid than just painting, the color seeps down into the flood icing. When it dries, it doesn’t look painted on, it looks more like its part of the base coat.
Here are the originals.
Thanks for having me Miss Callye!!! So thrilled to be spending time over here with you!
Happy Halloween Everybody!
