Location: Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA
Description: Who says flat cookies have to lack depth and dimension?! Not Julia! Join world-renowned sugar artist Julia M. Usher for this full-day hands-on class where you’ll explore several techniques for “elevating” your 2-D cookie designs (pun intended)! Along the way, you’ll receive an in-depth lesson on airbrushing that covers multi-color applications on one stencil using precision-control and shading techniques. You’ll also gain experience working with Julia’s Prettier Plaques™ and Dynamic Duos™ multi-piece layered stencil sets.
Techniques covered: Airbrushing (both precision-control and shading), stenciling, dusting with compressed petal dusts, wafer paper ruffles and other accents, royal icing transfers, hand-piped roses, fondant appliqués, rubber-stamping, and modeling chocolate bows and ribbons.
What you’ll take home: 3 to 4 elaborately decorated 2-D cookies, similar to those depicted, including: 1 stamped bird or still life cookie and 1 airbrushed/stenciled heart cookie using Julia’s stencil sets. Designs will vary with students’ imaginations! As time permits, students can create a fourth design.
Prerequisites: This class is suitable for all skill levels. Some airbrushing experience is helpful, though not necessary.
(1) All tools and materials will be supplied, but are for classroom use only.
