This attempt I wanted to try wet-on-wet technique on 3D cookies. Previously I tried on curve shaped cookies but it was not that successful, so I tried it bit different.

To create the gift box I applied the technique on 6 small square shaped cookies and attach them in to a big circle shape cookie once those completely dried. Used another big circle cookie as the lid and 4 additional small cookies to depict numbers (2,0,1,9).

For wet-on-wet patterns used piping consistency RI.

This is spectacular! I must admit I gave a little chuckle when I read about your attempt to use wet-on-wet techniques on a curved cookie - I could just picture some beautifully marbled icing sliding right off the cookie! You definitely learned a crucial wet-on-wet lesson the hard way! But back to THIS entry. I love everything about this. The colors are bright and beautiful, the marbled design on the lid of the box is terrific, and I love that this is a 3D creation to boot! Most of all, however, I have seen a huge progression from your first challenge entry to this one. It is clear you spent a lot of time in the design phase of this entry (which is crucial when working under the time constraints imposed by wet-on-wet), and it shows in how crisp and symmetric your marbling patterns are and how smooth the surfaces dried. This is a fabulous addition to the challenge!

Thank you for descriptive, educative comment! Yes, working wet-on-wet on curved cookies was a great experience indeed. Thanks to both @Julia M. Usher and @Bakerloo Station for organizing such a wonderful challenge; I’m addicted to wet-on-wet technique now.  No doubt the challenge is improving my skills drastically.
