Christmas is coming! 

Hey Ghost!  Be back, your turn is over!

If it doesn’t snow, is he going to carry his sleigh?

Rudolf!  Help!

Wet-on-wet cookies look flat.  But I wanted to show a little perspective. 

To do so

  • I change the thickness of outlines in one cookie
  • I made some shades and high light
  • Contrast of the different sizes of cookies (the girl and Christmas flowers)
  • Cookie on cookie (Santa, bag and Rudolf)

 

Wet on wet

I use brush for background   This is the photo just to show how I did.  Santa Clause was made on cookie.

Very thin outline and details with scriber needle 

Please see how @Manu made her cookies

 Black outlines, I got the idea from @Jill FCS, Funky Cookie Studio

My cookies are all wet-on-wet except the window frame (the girl cookie) and snow.   

Dark color background and light color Rudolf was quite a challenge.  This cookie is bigger than other cookies and I needed to work really quick.   If I add lots of light colors, the Rudolf gets fatter and fatter, so I add brown color again to make him handsome.

The girl cookie:  I made the room part (square part) then outside of the room.  

Santa cookie:  I made Santa part first, then brick part.

I wish I could show how I made my cookies but I am afraid while I take photos royal icing starts drying.

Wow, how amazingly funny and well done! Great job, Ryoko!

Hi Zara!  This one was really difficult and very challenging.  Can you imagine that I made a pose in front of mirror like this Santa for my sketch?  and how my husband looked at me?  

He said, "I am glad you didn't ask me to do so" 

@Julia M. Usher  this is the story behind this project....

LOL - My husband would have said the same thing. In fact, he stays as far away from my cookie work as he can!

Fabulous @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave.!! What a wonderful set and such a challenging entry for this Challenge!! Don't know if I'd be up to tackling such a detailed project using the wet-on-wet technique but you did an awesome job . Great idea to make the ghost as a transfer as I think that would help with giving you a little more time for creating the details.  Love it!! ❤️❤️

Very nice, Ryoko! The wet on wet is perfect for your story cookies! ❤️❤️

Thank you, Christine.   Wet on wet, that's something I don't do usually because I can't work that fast.  I've found out it's fun!    

You are THE BEST cookie story teller, @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave.! I LOVE this witty little Christmas scene. Thank you for your explanation of your process. I felt like I was right there with you during the process. I noted especially your comment: "I wish I could show how I made my cookies but I am afraid while I take photos royal icing starts drying." This is SO true! Perhaps for this challenge, you needed to have a video of your process instead of photos! (I would have loved to have seen that, by the way!) As for these cookies, I think it was clever to stack two cookies for extra dimension, and I like how you made wet-on wet royal icing transfers. That definitely would help buy some extra decorating time in a scene as complex and detailed as this one. Clever, as always!

Thank you, Christine.   Taking video what I do..... just to imagine that makes me nervous  I usually don't do wet on wet this much, it was fun to know that I can do something with that technique.  Thank you for this challenge.
