once upon a midnight dreary

I am still playing around with my new airbrush.  For my final set of 2014 Halloween cookies, I used it to create a neat antique effect.  I am totally in love with these cookies.  Each cookie took several days to make because it was a layering process.  First, I iced each cookie with white royal icing.  Then I airbrushed each one to create the antiqued effect.  Next, I piped the raven, bust, and watch with white royal icing.  Finally, I painted the details.

Even though it required a bit of effort, I will definitely use this layering technique again. I am already dreaming of holiday cookies and baby cookies and Valentine cookies.  You will see more of this.
