Hi, all,

How do you decide what you outline first and how do you go about it? Do you trace the outline or just freehand it? I'm looking to do a bunch of  Dr. Seuss cookies - the "Oh, the places you will go" hot air balloon-type, like these or these.

Hi Yvonnef!

Regarding your pic number 2:

I usually would make the black outline for all of the drawing in the cookie. Afterwards, make it dry for 30 mins or so in the dehydrator. Then I would fill the colour of one, skip the one that is right at it's side, continue filling the other one, skip the one next to it and so on. I would leave it dry in dehydrator, let's say 20 mins while i do another cookie. And then fill in the gaps (regarding spaces i skipped on purpose)

I don't know if i have been clear and helped you with your dought? If not, pls let me know!

Here is the ones I made...IF I ever did them again I would do it differently.  

Thanks for sharing! They look good to me, but  - just curious - what would you do differently next time?

the actual picture i based these of off, the icing was a lot smoother...the more i looked at it, the more i think the entire balloon was outlined and flooded with solid white - giving it that smooth look - and then they somehow painted the colors just looked to perfect...however, i am just a beginner so could just be my lack of experience.
