This is a videorecap of my first tutorial of this year (Jan 2019), here on Cookie Connectionfeaturing the “Felt Technique”. I used colored icing sugar -aka confectioner's or powdered sugar- for the felt effect. But right before coating the cookie with sugar, I used a paint brush to apply random dabs of flooding-consistency royal icing on the dried royal icing surface, to give a texture. The said texture underneath the coating of sugar gives the felt look. This is meant to be a complement of the step by step tutorial that you can find here:

I’m having trouble coloring my icing sugar...my gel food coloring is sticking to the inside of the bag.  I’ve tried adding more coloring and massaging.  Any ideas?  Just keep working it?  Beautiful technique!

Hi Emily! I started with a drop of color x 1spoon of sugar. You really need a small amount of color and I kept massaging until all the color was absorbed by the sugar. You wouldn’t want to add too much color because otherwise your sugar will become pasty. If this happens add sugar and keep massaging the bag. It takes a bit of patience. If you read my tutorial you will notice that I made a lot of red sugar compared to the grey one. It is because I wasn’t patient enough and added too much color and I had to add more sugar to absorb it. Eventually the red color developed and became too dark so I added more sugar to make it lighter. You don’t need so much tinted sugar, just a layer to cover the surface and make it look wooly/felty. Then you need to shake the cookie. A spoon of sugar will go for many cookies.
