1. Intro: I'm Daniela Melons. Welcome to my skill share class Watercolor cookies. Today we'll pay 10 different watercolor cookies will use various techniques for each cookie , including using wash gel pens and masking fluid, which we also called. Frisk it. I hope youll post your results in the project section of this class, whether you choose to do one cookie are all 10. Let's get started. 2. Class Supplies and Materials: for our painting. Watercolor trapeze class. We'll need a few supplies. We'll start with some watercolors I used. Um, I squeeze some from the to put them in my little palate and I'll let Adam right before I use them. We'll need some watercolor paper. Try and get 100 and £40 if you can. You can get it in a pad for mixed media paper, which is, they say it's a vellum surface. It just means it's very smooth or traditional watercolor paper, which has a little tooth. This is cold pressed. I like the big sheets, and then I cut them down to whatever size I'm going to use. But the key to remember is £140 is a nice weight. Anything less and the paper will buckle. I like to have an assortment of brushes. Can use whatever sizes you prefer. Um, I like to have basically a, uh, 46 See, this is a 10 the large one that I have a four six or for here when they have a small one of 2/0. When I have a very, very fine one, which is a 12/0. You can use whatever assortment you like. I like to use a pencil and a racer. This is a mechanical pencil, and I write very lightly with it. I try not to make any indents in the paper, but number two pencil will work justice fine again. We're gonna work on try and spurring images very, very lightly. I use a pipette to wet my paints, fill with water and then went my paints. But that's not necessary. You can do everything for the brush if you'd like. Um, I like to have a gel pen, a white gel pen to add highlights, since watercolor does not have white paint and the other way to get there to other ways to get white on the paper, either leaving it untouched with no pain, no pigment or masking it off first, and we'll talk about that. During the course. I have a clear water in a spray bottle. I have white masking fluid, sometimes called frisk it masking fluid. It's a lot like rubber cement and will apply this with a brush on our paper where we don't want pigment. Now for the brush that I use for my frisk it, I use an old brush that is really gummy now, and it's coated with the frisk it and I use this. It's a devoted brush just for the masking fluid. And that way I don't have to worry about ruining another brush. This is my go to brush. I can also use a toothpick to get very fine areas of the frisk it as well. After the first get drives, we wipe it off. You can wipe it off with your hand or an eraser and like to use this nice and gummy eraser . We're going to use white gouache today to make um, highlights on our some of our cookie paintings. This is the other way to get white is to use the wash. Um, I have to water jugs. I keep a small container that's strictly clean water. And I use this if I want to add water to my paper, I don't rinse the brush off in it and then my larger water jug, and I'll use this for everything, and it will get very cloudy. Lastly, um, the plate of cookies. This is what were the images we're gonna draw today? I've also included a template that you can download and turn into a stencil. You download it printed out and cut out each cookie shape, and then we'll transfer it to our watercolor paper with a pencil on. We'll paint from here, get started. 3. Class # 1 Chocolate Chip Cookie: for our first you do you make with chocolate chip cookie. Here is the template that I included in the class projects. I cut it out. I drew chips in there just so would be obvious that it was our chocolate chip cookie templates. So start with this one. I'm gonna take the medium brush, and I'm not gonna mix my base color. I'm gonna take some of the brown here and I'll mix a teeny bit of blue and that kind of gives a a warm color. And then I'll take some more of the brown over here, and I'll mix it with some of this later. Brown golden brown. Okay. Now, to start the cookie, just gonna paint it with clear water all along the entire silhouette of the cookie, the shape that I made you could just use a round circle is well, you don't have to use the template, and that's pretty wet. So now I don't want the cookie to be a solid color. It's going to pick up a little of the color my brush and just dab it on haphazardly. I'm not trying to fill in all the areas can You will go back with a later golden color added to some of the spots, intentionally leaving some white spots or some spots without any pigment. Here we go. Now, when watercolor dries, it'll dry later. So I think I'm gonna want to add some more darker brown. So I'm gonna fix that again with the brown and some blue. It's a nice dark brown. Just mix that in creating some shadows, trying to leave those white spots as well. And I'm not trying to make the edge perfect. Um, the cookie has a little rough edge. Anyway, I would like to keep that. Okay, so I'm gonna leave that there. I'm gonna let that dry. We'll come back when it's dry. Okay? Next up for the chocolate chip cookie, we're going to add our chips and a little bit of texture to the top of the cookie taking my number four brush. And now I'm gonna make some chocolate chip color. Chocolate chips are not really black hair dark brown, but I want to get a nice, rich color. So I'm gonna adult a bunch of black and some brown on my palette. Maybe a little bit of blue as well. Okay, and I'm gonna take much smaller brush. And I'm just gonna add some chips. Not gonna go for a particular shape. Just a very, um, like this one is kind of a a very strange trap. Avoid. And here and I'm not gonna fill in solid black. I'm gonna leave some little spots. Um, without pigments. Makes it look a little highlight. Some of the chips will be rounded as well. Okay, Kind of change up the size. So some will be larger than others. Just like an irregular cookie. And I'll put a few on the edge. I always like to see that on a cookie. I think it gives it a little bit of realistic Look. Kind of nice. Now, take my ultra thin brush my 12/2, and I'm gonna go in with a darker brown. Not the same color we use for the chips just yet. And I'm just gonna make some cracks in the cookie. So the way I do this is kind of just a shaky hand. Just gonna add them every now and again, having some coming out from the edges, and it will dry a little lighter than that. You see, here and then I'll go back in with my just my caramel color crack. Make some of those and then just some swatches of cookie shades. The last thing I want to do before we do our final details, I want to add just a little sprinkling of dark specks in later specs. So I'll take my second smallest size brush, fill it with pigment and just splash over it. Go back, take a little of the caramel color and do the same. Okay, Gonna let this dry and then we'll do some final touches, okay. And now, for the final touches on the chocolate chip cookie will erase the outer pencil marks. Many remain. Then we'll take our weight gel pen and just add some highlights to some of the parts of the chocolate chips. Just makes it pop a little bit. They will add a few little white dots here and there. You can also do this by spattering on the goulash shows up best against the darker area, but I think it just adds a little touch to it. And now we're just gonna make a little shadow underneath it. Um, so we'll take our, um, number four brush, and I'm just going to lightly paint around the outer edge of the cookie. I paid all the way around, and then we'll take just a little bit of a dark paint. We don't want it to be too dark, so we'll just go make it. Makes it a little bed, Gonna move back to my smaller brush, and I'm gonna hold that dark color up against the cookie. You know what? The pigment move along. Creating a shadow the way you can control the shadow is by making just very fine area of Clearwater around it or very thick area. So on the bottom of the cookie over here, I made a very thick area of Clearwater. So the pigment has a lot of area to run to move. And on this side of the cookie, I held it pretty close, pretty fit and pretty close to the cookie. Okay. Can add a little more darkness, if you like, just to try and make the cookie pop off the page. There we have our chocolate chip cookie 4. Class #2 Graham Cracker: our next cookie is graham cracker again. I'll take my medium sized brush. This one cookie is more golden, and then it's got some spots. Um, with the little holes are in each cookie as well as right down the center of a little perforation. So the first thing we do is wet This cookie, the entire square just with clear water, right up to the edge. And then I'll mix my color and again well, do a variation of colors. You don't have to make the edge perfect. A little ragged is kind of Ah, nice indicator that it's cookie. So I'm gonna use my brown and a little bit of blue And then over here, we'll just makes this with a little bit of the burnt Sienna. Thanks. So I'm just gonna add a little bit more water. It seems to have dried on this side at some of that golden caramel calorie. Next again, I'm gonna leave some white spaces. The pigment will run into some of the white and will create variations, which is a very nice look as well. Then we'll add just little swatches of the dark. We'll see where that takes us and if we have to lighten it up or add another color. A few things make this a signature. Um, signature graham cracker. And that will be the dots in the perforation. So we'll have to pay a lot of attention to the final touches on this cookie to make it clearer that it's a graham cracker. Here. I'd like to add some more, go back and add a little bit more of a caramel color. Go right up to the edge again. This is gonna dry lighter as watercolor does here. We'll let this dry and then we'll come back. No, the graham cracker. The first layer has dried, but it take me eraser and just gently erase some of the pencil marks around the edge. OK, but take my very fine brush and use it a little bit of the brown. Just go over the situation down the center of the cookie again. It'll dry flat. When you make this restoration, you want to try and keep your brush straight and drag it along, hold it and then release. Okay, Now I'm gonna add my dots. The back row has four dots. Two on each side of this oration. then there's just one dot on each situation side. Well, at two more here, one more row here, one on each side of the situation. I had two more on each side, two for this row and two more on each side. Inspiration for the final row. Okay, I like to add a little bit of that, Um, specs, um, that we use with the brush. So get take the 2nd 2 smallest brush we been using. Fill it with a lot of pigment just hit on top. And you can decide how much you like of this look gonna add just a little bit of the doctor caramel as well. Okay, we're gonna let this dry before we do our final touches. The final touches for the Graham cracker cookie. We'll get rid of any pencil lines that still remain around the outer edge. That perimeter of the cookie, we'll take our gel pen and for a highlighter. I'm just gonna highlight it. Just a slate. Um, to the right, one side of all, our little in dense. This will help round out any dots that aren't quite round. Give a hint of light and depth, but not the overpowering. Okay? And now we'll do the outer edge. The shadow. Okay, Just gonna go with clear water, taking a smaller brush. Go right over the edge, leading the shadow disperse. Go around it one more time and again. Use your judgment. If you want more of a shadow, add a little. Another layer began. Layers are really good with watercolor. And if there's areas that you don't like the look of use while it's still wet, use water to move pigment around and damn a little bit. Here we go, our graham cracker. 5. Class #3 Chocolate Filled Cookie: we'll start our Milano cookie. So this has a darker brown edges, very pale center. And it's this filled cookie. So I'm gonna really emphasize that chocolate filling. It's a smooth top in just a few little wrinkles here and there. So I'll take my largest brush. This is the 10. And I'm gonna go over the area with the cookie dough. First brain clean water right up to the edge. Now I want the dough or the cookie part to have a little yellow hue in it, and then some of this late brown. It looks very vibrant on my palette, but we're gonna try and keep it very pale on the cookie going all around. Probably gonna leave the area in the center, um, unpainted. Then just let the color flow in there. Just whatever flows in there will use that. Okay, well, let that dry. We'll come back. So no. Now for our Milano Cookie, take my eraser and erase the pencil marks on this side on the right side. Here and now we're gonna add the fudge later. Okay? So to do this, I think I'll actually get any thinner brush. Gonna add a layer of water to where I want the fudge to go. Can I take some of the darker color that we made and my only requirements? Try and get the smoothness of the edge. Um, right where it meets the cookie on the top and on the bottom. Great. If this brush is too big, you can change to a smaller one or even start with a smaller one. Now, I'm gonna put a lot of pigment here and let it run down, going right up against the edge of the cookie and again working this area just a little bit more. Okay? I like the way it looks with the lightness over there. So I'm gonna leave that. I'm gonna take some of my dark and just gently, very lightly go around the outline, kind of just to let us know there's a hint of chocolate on that side as well. Tidy up any engines and that will dry, and then we'll add the final touches. Now for a Milano cookie, we'll just add the final touches. I'm gonna paint the entire cookie part with a clear water glaze, trying not to move any pigment around on it. I'm gonna take my paper towel just lately. Dab. And then I'm gonna add just a teeny bit more, um, color little pigment just to make it a little warmer. Could go around the outer edge first, and then I'll just pull some color into the cookie, take a brush, tap it out most of the color. So it's just clear water and just pull some pigment from the center of cookie away, right to the edge. Okay. And now I'm just gonna do my shadow. So again, I take clear water, and I'm just gonna roll around the edge of the cookie. And I'm making a pretty wide path. Not that I want the shadow to be that wide, but I want the pigment to disperse. Okay? And now I'll take my smaller brush. Not too much pigment on the brush. Not too much water. Just paint around the edge. Okay. Keep it very soft. And then I can always build up more color if I want to have more of a shadow. This is kind of a simple cookie. Um, to simple tasting cookie. It's delicious, cookie, as we all know, but it's a simple cookie to paint. There's not a lot of texture. Um, not a lot of shadows. Just a layer of chocolate, which I really emphasized with this painting. It's in there. We have not cookie. 6. Class #4 Tartlette: we're gonna paint our tartlet cookie. This is a fun cookie to paint because you can use any kind of filling. This is like a strawberry jam, so we'll make it red, but you could make it orange. Purple. Really? Any color you like? I'm going to start by painting Thea outside the cookie part. The biscuit part. Now, this is a nice caramel color with darker edges, so we'll try and capture that. Gonna take just clear water. This is my number six brush. I'm just gonna go right around the edge. Would it take some of this nice caramel color here? Just put some caramel color, some pigment right around where we want the cookie part to be there? No, I take a thinner brush because it's easier to control. This is the 2/0. I'm just gonna add some clean water and the color The pigment will flow wherever the water is. Not trying to get a uniform color. I'm just trying to get color wherever I want. The cookie dough. The cookie cookie, I guess cooks cookie to be. And over here on the edge here, some of this pigment ran out. So I'm going to try and pick it up with my paper towel, and then I'll go back and add a little color right on the edge. So I'm dipping my brush in Clearwater and then trying to pick up some pigment just to clean it up. Now, over here, you take a little bit of the darker color and just very carefully put some on the edge. Kind of runs into the cookie, and that's okay. Here we go. Okay. Well, let that dry. Then we'll come back and add are filling for our tartlet. The first layer has dried, but it take my racer and just erase some of the pencil marks around the edge. And we'll get to filling the tartlet using my number four brush. Gonna fill the entire inside was clear water right up to the edge of, um, where the cookie is. But I'm gonna leave those two little crescent shapes on either side for highlights. Try not to have those filled with water. Just work around them. Then I think I'll add a really nice We'll get a nice red color. Nice and deep, so we'll get a lot of pigment, and I'm gonna add some orange as well. And then I'm just gonna add some pigment to the outer edge. You can see how, but it's the water. How it moves, a little spot with a little more red again, it's gonna dry a little lighter. So I want to make sure I have enough pigment on here to really make it brilliant color. Okay, good at some random Because I wanted to be really dark. Have a teeny bit of green That just makes it a little bit darker. Turn this around and I'm just going around the outer edge with my darker red. Okay, now I'm gonna take my smaller brush, tidy up some of those areas right here. Make that a little neater. Same thing on this side of the question behind. It's a nice red color. And over here I'm gonna take my very fine brush while my filling the red feeling is drying . Go with a little bit of brown. Just go around my edge Can the small strokes instead of one long one And I'm gonna come back after the stride smile at her next layer, going back over the area. I've already done my short little strokes just feeling finishing the entire perimeter here . I'll take a little bit of the caramel color. Just add it to the edge where it went. I worry over painted a little bit. Okay, well, let that dry. We'll come back and add the final touches for our tartlet. Um, you can just double check up any pencil marks remaining are gone. And nowhere to work on the center of that cookie. A little bit of a cookie part. Not for the feeling. Feeling looks pretty nice. Just gonna go around with the dark caramel and just line right where it meets the red feeling. And then I think we'll just put it on a shadow around the full cookie. Here we go. Okay. Going around with clean water, take my small brush and just go around the edge. Shadow kind of grounds the cookie up against the paper and create a softer edge by taking a clean brush with clean water of it and just going around So there are no harsh lines. Here we go. There 7. Class #5 Sprtiz: here we have a butter cookie, a spritz cookie, which gives it the very pretty shape shaped like a flower. And what's fun about this cookie is the filling. It's kind of an orangey red, but again, you can use any type of any color, any type of filling if you want to make blueberry or grape or, um, even frosting so you could go any color blue if you wanted. First thing we're to do is I'm gonna work on painting the cookie. It's a pale cookie again, a little caramel on the edges. And then it's got these highlights here. Now, the highlights I drew with the coat with a just a regular pencil. I'm gonna try and not paint the highlights or where my pencil marks are. So I'm gonna be a little more careful with my water application. So I'm gonna bring the water just around each section. But I'm not gonna cross onto the pencil mark only to do three or four at a time because they don't want the water to dry too much. And now I'm gonna add just a teeny bit of color. We want to keep the color fairly pale and the highlights. We'll create highlights by not putting any pigment there but a train. Go for a little darker color on the edge where the cookie would, um, maybe start to burn if you were baking it at home and again the water color. Um, well, dry, lighter. If it is too dark for you, you can just take a little clear water and put it on the part you've painted. And since it was all wet, it will move the pigment. I'll turn my paper work on the last three again. I'll be careful to try and not get the pencil marks wet and try and keep my pigment to the outer perimeter. The way I do that is by adding the pigment to the outer perimeter, first letting it flow and then into the center. And then, if I feel it needs mawr pigment in the center, I'll add it. It's easier to add pigment than take it away. Okay, gonna switch to a smaller brush, push back a little. The pigment on brushes on the section we already tainted. Just add a little bit of color on the edge Now for the one we just painted and clear off my brush. Just kind of coax a pigment in giving a little shape to each section. It's okay if I don't use it all, use all the pigment. Or if I leave some white spots, we could always man add more later or we might decide we like that look. So now I'm just gonna add a little darker color to the edges and I'll start with the edges that we did first. It's a little bit drier on that section. No, over here. I think I want to add a little bit more of a caramel color can push it back a little. Go back with just a teeny bit of the dark and it kind of gives Ah, crispy cooked edge right up to the edge can use your brush gently to pull in the pigment. Moving around. It is an area that's too dark for you. Just add a little more the caramel color. OK, we'll let this dry will come back and more players k r. Spritz cookie. The first layer is dry. To take my eraser. Just gently erase some of the pencil marks around the outer edge. Then I'll gently a race pencil marks right in the center. Take a clean, dry brush is a swipe away the little racer shavings and go back to any spots. I see that I missed. I don't wanna work over the pigment that I put down with the eraser, so I'm gonna be, um, on the gentle side, and then I'll just go back if I need to, rather than doing too much. Okay, so now I get the fun part. I get to choose which color filling I want. You think I'm gonna do like a nice, rich orange? First thing I'll do is I'll add, uh, quite clear, clear water to the spot where the little jam filling is going to go. We'll let that sit while I mix up my color. So this is a very brilliant orange is a little too much for what I want, so I'll take a little of this and mix it in. That's much better. Get a little variation going. Here we go. Good to use my smaller brush. And now I will start with my lighter, the orange color right in the center, and then my really rich pigment on the outer edge. Because the center was pretty wet. I don't need a lot of pigment. There's a lot of water and it will run away with it. So I'm gonna come back after this dries and add a few more layers. Take just a little bit more concentrated orange. Just add a few on the side. A few dabs. I stopped for a center right now, but I want to work on the on the perimeter a little. Take some of that nice, dark caramel color we have and just make small strokes right around the edge. Start by doing the change. Then we'll work our way around. Okay? Soon after to take just slightly a little bit more water. I just want the color to be quite. It's dark and we're just gonna go around. We're not gonna do the entire. We're not gonna make a straight line single line. We're gonna leave some splotches of white, just his little highlights. So it's not a perfect cookie. Just the idea that the peaks are forming. Here we go and we're to let this strike will come back and do the final touches. We'll add another layer to our center as well for our um, orange spritz cookie had another layer of orange to our center just to make that really vibrant. Although it looks pretty nice as it is, I want the center to still remain a little bit later, we'll try and get that outer edge a little more brilliant. And this should be a really nice, um, color when it all dries. Nice contrast there. And now we're work on the shadow. So with water colors, um, again, you working with lots of layers and just constantly reassess so your first game plan might not work, but you just try something else. You might think you only one layer, but you decide you want more layers, or you might want the color to be more vibrant. Okay, around here, create a little soft edge. There we have our spritz cookie. 8. Class #6 Pizzelle: here we have the pa's Ellie, one of my favorite cookies. This is made with a press, so it kind of gives very ornate, um, designs. And the back also looks this way. So it's kind of a fun cookie to paint. We're gonna train, highlight some of the darkness in the lighter caramel color we will do. This is I'll paint the whole cookie with a clear, um, poet of water. And then we will drop in a very, very late layer of like a very light caramel on most of the cookie. Not all of it. The first layer. We're just gonna get slight bit of pigment. Now, this cookie is a little more complex than some of the ones we worked on before. And the key to the complex painting in watercolor is lots of layers. So just be patient and realize it might take longer than previous projects. But it'll be a fun one to dio. I'm just gonna take a little bit of the very light golden color and go around the cookie. I want to go very light with the pigment because I wanna be able to erase these pencil marks afterwards. So our first layer is really just to create the basic structure for this cookie. Just a teeny bit of color here and there. And we'll let this dry and then go back to the next layer. Okay, well, that that's it. We'll come back to the next layer for the Ezeli. We're gonna take our after the first layer, has dried or to take up our eraser and erased the outer edge very gently. And then we'll start adding some shading on the centerpieces. I'm going to use my very fine brush for this task. Um, you have to mix a little more color first. So take that lighter brown. Just a little bit of this regular Brown. Great. Now we'll go back to my very fine brush, and I think I'll start right on this outer ring. I'm gonna just outline the center here, do one at a time. I outlined it with a nice, thick line with my Clearwater. Gonna fill it in. It creates a nice, blurry edge and then I'll go to the next one, and I'll do it for all of these. So right now the part that we're painting on the spa's Ellie would be on the indentation. And we want this to look a little darker because it's the part that's down pressed up against the iron. So to make it have depth, we're gonna make the color a little darker. So we're gonna let that dry. We're gonna work on the inside now. Same procedure I'm gonna outline with the darker caramel color. And then I'm gonna go back in with a wet brush and just pull the water right up into this little cross design we have here, and then I'll pull the pigment up to it. Okay? They will work on the outers part as well. I'm gonna take my darker caramel color and just gonna outline go around that scalloped trim that we just filled in all those pieces from. That's a very pretty shape. Okay, now I'm gonna outline the actual outline of the cookie. Take it nice and slow. He reminds me of a doily. Almost done. Okay. And now we're gonna do the second perimeter here almost all the way around. Okay? And then we're gonna do the oval shapes. So to do the oval shape, I'm gonna do one oval in one of these little what shapes. They are rounded triangles. Maybe I'm gonna bring my, um, brushing with the water and just go around to blur the edges around the oval and around the rounded triangle, and that'll pull some pigment, but not a lot. And we'll do the next one. Do half it there. Okay, that move some of the pigment around. Keep going the other half here, try and pick up some of that pigmented. So it's not so harsh. A little bleed is fine. We have some variation on the first layer that we did of a cookie, which was nice, and there were creating just a little more variation. And if we want, we can even add a little bit more color by just dropping it in and moving it around. So here I want to just lighten it up a little, do my outline and then my wet brush. There we go. I think I just a little bit of color. - There we go. Okay. Could add very carefully trying outline the plus sign here. A little cross getting a lot of pigment running, and it's OK, let's move it around. Here we go. We'll let this dry. They will have the final touches. Okay, next layer of the pa's Ellie cookie, we will take our racer and trainer race as much as we can of any pencil marks that remain. Because we did so many light layers, there's a good chance we can get a bunch of them off. Okay, that's a very pretty cookie. OK, so now we just add a little bit of highlight right in the center. We will clean up that little cross, just going over. It looks nice. And I think we'll just do a shadow right around the outside. The outer edge came to go quite top heavy on the right hand side. And then I'm gonna try and do a much thinner shadow along the other side. Okay, so now take this dark again. Go really outside here. The perimeter again. The shadow will dry lighter than it is. And as we get to the areas that are very much thinner, we'll just try and hug the cookie and add a little less pigment. Here we go right around the edge. We'll see about tightening this up a little bit. We go for the shadow. Now, that's very nice. Now we could leave it just like it is. Um, I think I want to add a little bit more, Um, something to this cookie. It's a little paler than this, Which I don't mind that, but I think I'm gonna add a little bit of, um, speckle this matter. So I want to go with the caramel color, and I'm gonna use my small brush because I went little fine. Speckles good. Told my brush and just tap it over. Great. So there we have a deli cookie. 9. Class #7 Sprinkle Spritz: here we have another fund cookie. It's a spritz cookie, like the cookie we did before. But, um, in addition to the sports, it has the colored Sprinkles, so that makes it a fun one to paint, really use a similar technique to the one we didn't before. We're gonna try and keep our clean water in. Each section will add the caramel color and then a slightly darker on the edge, and then we'll let it dry. We're not gonna paint around. The Sprinkles after it's dry will add a layer of Sprinkles. None of the Sprinkles are clear, so that will be a problem. And we'll use some good wash to make the white ones. So since this cookie it's a little tighter, a little smaller. I'm gonna start by right in the center of each section, adding my pigment and then using a much smaller brush and I'm going around. I can feel on this one here that the water really dried on that section, so I will come back and add water right away before the paint dries. And on the other sections, I'll just help move the paint. Move around a little. The pigment move around and then we will add a little more of a toasty looking edge. Okay, Are we adding a little bit, uh, cooked edge to the cookie and we'll go back and blend that out a little, Make a nice little Grady int. So the way I do that is I bring a very watery caramel color on my brush, and I just let it work by two coming up against the darker color and I just let it once it touches, it, interacts and moves it around. Okay, Over here, you can see in the section where it kind of dried a little bit, but if we catch it quick enough, we should be okay. Add a little bit of dark just around the edge of some of these. Give it another look. Go back to this one at a little more. The caramel color. No more of the dark edge here. I'd like to add some more. The caramel edge over here. You can see how it's pulling the pigments already pooling around the edge, forming a very nice edge very reminiscent of a cooked cookie. And over here, I'm just gonna train blend that out somewhat. So it's not so harsh for here. I'm gonna add a little more caramel color. Just so there's a little difference between the darker brown and the next shade. And I like the way the darker brown looks thing, but at just a teeny bit of that. Okay, it's a little bit more than I wanted on this one. So I'll go back with a brush in the caramel color and blend that out. It's great. Well, let that dry. You know, I have the next layer, okay? With a rainbow spritz cookie, the first layer has dried, and now we're gonna try and remove some of pencil marks very lightly. I just rub the racer right on top of where I think the pencil marks are. No. Brush it away with a clean brush, clean, dry brush. You can see I missed much of pencil marks. I want to take my very fine brush, and I just want to outline the edges. Unlike the other cookie, we're not gonna outline the ridges. We're gonna add Sprinkles. And I think the too many lines would be very distracting. So there's the cookie outlined, and then we just you know, we start the fun part. We're gonna add our Sprinkles. Choose four or five colors. I think we'll start with red. I'm just gonna make a few nice, thick little lines. We don't have to fill them in solidly. And I'm gonna put, like, about seven of these swatches of color these little Sprinkles of each color. They don't have to all be the same size. It's kind of as you can see here. Some are short, some have broken off in one more and over here. Okay, so that's a nice, rich color. Um, it's at a little of this very almost orange yellow. I think I'm only gonna add about five of these and then only at a nice green, just haphazard. Wherever I feel. It needs one. It hasn't had a color like that. Beauty of it is You can have. You can make them all the same color if you want two more. That one right here. I want to make sure that color is nice and rich. No, and some blue. And for the blue, I wanted to be a fun blue. So do a nice blend of to lose that I have. There are some right across the middle. No, we didn't meet purple. Make sure this is long and thick enough. I want more than a little square here and now I want to add a little more the red to that layer. I want that to really look red as it dried. It kind of faded a little, which is okay, well added another layer. And now I add a little bit of a white and use the white when we use a little good wash. Guangxi's like an opaque watercolor. Very similar watercolor, and you can reignite it by if it dries on your palate by just adding water just like water color. It doesn't give you a solid white. Um, you can use a lot of layers to try and achieve that, but it does. It will hint at the weight absence. Got a little pink, maybe one more right here. The best way to do use the white washes after it dries to add a little bit of a shadow. So we'll let this cookie dry, and they will have the final touches to finish up our spritz cookie. Um, after the layers completely dry, we would just double check that there weren't any more pencil marks seem to have gotten those off pretty well, so we're gonna create a shadow. But I also want to create just a few little highlights on some of the Sprinkles. And I think I want to create a little shadow on some of the white Sprinkles because they're a little hard to detect. So I'm just gonna draw with my gel pen some shadow of some highlights with my gel pen, and then I'll take my super fine brush and just kind of underlying, um, the weight Sprinkles just to give a little hints that they're there. Maybe on this one, all sides. Yeah, I think I'll go back and do all sides on all of them. It's just a simple little touch, but it does suddenly make them show where they are. Um, that's all of them. Create the border for the Shadow again will make the right bottom half a little thicker in the top. And we'll add show for this one because we really want to emphasize this pretty shape of the cookie. The floral shape gonna really make sure we get all the spots and right on the edge here we'll make sure you keep that floral petal shape. So to do that, I picked up some of the witness in the pigment with my paper towel since it was still wet. And I just want to make sure that we get the shape, dry it over here. I didn't like how much water was, um, on that section. Here we go. No, I can control it a little better over here. Very nice. This would be a good one if you want to spatter, um, all the different colors from the Sprinkles around the cookie could use your template is a mask and just splatter around to be a pretty pretty in effect. 10. WC 8 Rolled Tuile: here we have a long rolled cookie. It's a fun cookie to paint because of the shape because of the stripes variation. So it's filled with chocolates. We want to make sure we give that impression on both ends. It's like a giant fixed, raw first layer. We're gonna put on gonna be that Clearwater This is another cookie that's a little complex solely working a lot of layers on this one. So the first layer will go over the whole cookie, and we're gonna, um, with clear water, and then we're gonna put just the lightest of colors we don't want to do really caramel. Kind of maybe just a little bit darker than like caramel. I'm just gonna go around the perimeter and we will come back after it drives and start adding the next few layers could be will start to take shape over time. Okay, well, let that dry. And then starting next layer in this fund shaped cookie, the first layer has dried. Take. My eraser just gently erased the outer edge. Some of the pencil marks from the outer edge. We can go back and do that after when we're done, but I like just try and remove it as I go. Okay? I think that top part is going to stay. That's okay. All right. So now what we're gonna do is want to try make ingredient so that the center of the cookie looks curved. So we want add some colors right from the edge. The way we're gonna do this is we're gonna start with our stripes. We'll start with our darkest strike. I penciled in where he wanted to be. And I'm just gonna fill those straits with clear water. No, only do two at a time. Do the center, too. And I'm just gonna add pigment to the edge. We'll start with the darkest pigment. OK, we'll let that sit. See what that does. Maybe add a little bit more enamel and a little bit of the darker caramel color. You don't really want them to join in the center, but if a little the pigment does meat, that's OK, but we're trying to leave that center part clear. You take my very fine brush in some of the darker caramel and just pull it out and then very, very gently just gonna outline it. Okay, then we'll go down. Do the same procedure on the bottom. There. Fill in the whole thing with clear water and top player. I'll take the dark color. Fill it on the edge on both sides on all three stripes that are remaining right on the edge . Don't go back and add a little bit more. I don't have my next color, that darker caramel a little bit over here to go back to it. Clear water moving around. It'll take me a very thin brush. Tidy it up. Start with the bottom one, right out and barely over the center right out, but just barely over the center in the same thing up here. Just make those edges nascent sharp. So now I want to add a layer of chocolate to indicate to hint that it's filled with chocolate. I'm gonna fill just the top third or so with clear water, and then I'll dab in some very dark cover. It's OK that doesn't go everywhere. Great. I'll let that dr will come back and do some more layers. Now that that's layers dry, I will take her eraser, go over any existing pencil mark. Not too many. I could take my very fine brush and the dark color. And I'm just gonna outline very carefully, gently, okay, and will outline the top of the cookie. Okay, so now a couple things you want to add because we want to create that dome shape, we're gonna want the outer edge to have a teeny, teeny bit of caramel color. Caramel will separate it from the darker stripe, which had a darker brown color. So I just what? The outer edge with warm with clean water. And now I'm just gonna put a little bit of caramel color right around the edge, and the water will carry it. The pigment can't be carried out. If it's not, will go in with some clean water and help it help the process along. So, by creating the lighter area in the top or in the center of our cylinder appear three d as if it's the top of the cylinder. So here we have some clean water used to blend out that, um, dark caramel color. Looks like we need a little bit more that dark caramel color, some clean water to help that pigment blend. Okay, well, let that dry. We'll come back and add some of the fine stripes and the shadow. Okay, this layer is all dry. So now we will add some shadows, some highlights and some fine lines. Um, let's do the fine lines first. Could take my very small brush and re wet this dark caramel color that we have on their palates. And I'm gonna try and create stripes, but I'm not gonna go from point to point. I'm gonna just go from the side and, um, veer off so that the center it lightens up like this. So it's just the hint of of the line and then on this side of the train, match it and one more in here, here, and we'll do this the entire length. And here we're just trying to create the illusion of being a cylinder. The I will connect, um, and then we want to add some dots. So I'm gonna take that dark caramel and and just a little bit of dark brown to it. I'm gonna add just a few dots here and there. The, um dot the dough. The cookie cookie cookie has a little bit of Christmas to it, which is what those dots are. We're just gonna add those throughout the cookie, leaving the center kind of untouched. And with that dark color will just go to the edge right where those straits are filling any spots sticking out, anything that needs to be retouched. It's a little spot here. And then we'll pull it in for the same procedure where we just pulled the stripes right to the center. Careful not to have too much on your brush, and then we'll add it to the other side, tidy up this little stripe and just pull in to the center. There is a nice illusion, uh, of it being around. I want to add a little bit of darkness, Rachel, that delicious chocolate top. All right, on the edge. And now we can add our shadow and highlights careful with Shadow, because I just added color to the top here, so I'll be very cautious over there. But for the rest of it, I will add a little perimeter of Clearwater and a little bit of shadow a little bit later on one side than on the other. For the cast shadow, pick up just a teeny bit on this side. Can't shut on the other side. Feather it out a little. Now, I'll be very cautious around here. And that did not work with this. Dry that off, tidy up that edge with a very small brush I want. And just a little bit of a highlight on the edge with my gel pen right up top here. I just want to create a line. Really doesn't show it just started, cleans up the existing line and there we have our honor rolled up cookie. 11. WC 9 Fudge Striped: here we have a fun fudge striped cookie. This is a miniature version. I think we're all familiar with the larger size ones. Um, it's a fun cookie to paint. It has texture, has chocolate, and it has a crispy edges. So we want to try and capture all of that. To start with painting, I want to get just the cookie. It's OK if I run over to where the chocolate goes on the sides, but it's gonna paint the whole cookie with clear water. And then I'll add a little of the light brown so you want the edge to be a little darker than the center of the cookie. But we still want the center of the cookie to look crispy and not pale. So ah, little bit of the caramel in the center and the darker brown on the edge. I think I'll go over the edge just a little bit, and then we're gonna come back, and I have the chocolate layer and the texture on the top. So over here I don't really want this bulging edge, so I'm gonna just go back with a little the caramel color, a fairly wet brush and just work the pigment back. It's okay if it comes out as long as it's kind of a greedy int softness instead of sections of the Carlton color. Okay, we're gonna let that dry, then we'll come back and add texture and chocolate layer. So I'm gonna take my very tiny brush again, and I want to make sure you have enough dark color. So I'm gonna actually need a larger brush to mix the color a little bit of brown, a little bit of blue. Great. A little darker than I wanted. So I had a little golden brown to that. Great. That's better. So now they're different shapes within the cookie on this little one. They have like, a little diamonds, but you don't have to make diamonds. You could make any shape that you just want to repeat. The pattern kind of give the hint of it. So over here, I'm just going to kind of make a op along ed shape, and I'm just gonna make lots and lots of them going right up here to the edge can still make my full egg shape because we're gonna cover it with chocolate. And this color is nice. It's a little dark right now. It's gonna dry lighter, But it's gonna really give us a nice texture. Trinket right in between, even if it does get covered by the fudge layer that we're gonna add. Still want that look from the key here is to do the entire section that's gonna be cookie texture. Add a few more in there. Just keep adding more and more. Okay, Gonna let this dry won't take too long. Um and then we'll do the fudge part. Don't want to start paying the fudge and have the darker color run into the texture. We just put on the cookie good with our foot straight cookie. Now our texture has dried, and now we get to add the fudge part, which is kind of a fun part. So to create highlights on the fudge, we don't want it. Just add layers of dark color. We want to leave stripes of highlight, whereas if the light was shining, it would be bouncing off and around the edge to we want to do the same. The edge bottom. That's where the chocolate pools on the bottom that were trained. A show to hint at Okay. So the way I'm gonna do this is gonna take my water. And I'm just gonna paint around the bottom first. And I'm careful to avoid the areas where the top layer of fudge would be. I want to create a little more height with that. Just try this one. I think I went over the edge a little too much. So we'll go back to that. I'm gonna take my fin brush very dark. I'm just gonna go around the outers outer edge. I'll leave that when that drives will see what it does. Same thing over here again with the more complex paintings, more complex cookies. We have a lot of a lot more layers, which means a lot more drying time. Some people like to use hairdryers or dryer tools, but that can below the paint. So if you do choose to speed up the process that way, just be very cautious that you're not blowing the paint together. Okay, well, that's trying. Go in a little more here. Well, that's trying to go over the top center stripe, so I'm gonna just make my stripes all the way down. And because it comes around the bottom the cookie and got a color in the base here. But leave a little bit of a lip and and a lot of pigment here and now I'll continue this and I'll leave those highlights. I could add a lot more pigment, creating a rich, color rich chocolate, and we'll do the same over here. And it's not supposed to be a perfectly straight strength. Go right to the edge over here will make it a little bit more textured inside, too. Well, let that dry, come back and work on her next layer. Okay. We want to add another few layers on our fudge striped cookie, My brush and I want to go over here where the one stripes gonna be. Take my pigment again. I don't want to make a perfect least straight straight. Go around where the chocolate with pool in the base of the cookie Go up top here where the stripe would be again It went perfectly straight, strict, given a little bit of organic shape and and lots of pigment for a nice rich chocolate layer . You know, I'm gonna go around the bottom here as well, adding another layer chocolate or it's on the bottom of the cookie and the outer edge. Okay, they will come right to the center. Here. Can will outline the cookie. I'm leaving a little white distance between the stripe. Just just depicted. Not that it really is there. Still want to add a little more pigment? I'll rework the one we did earlier. Center stripe. We want to get the chocolate that's on the bottom center of the cookie case like that, we will work on the final straight. Keep going. Que go back here. And a little more richness to get this color nice and shiny. And I'll go just paint the outer edge here. Okay? Fan. Right here. We'll let this dry. We'll do some final touches after this layers dry for the final touches for our fund striped cookie. Could you use the gel pen again? Just gonna draw around the bottom of the cookie, Okay. And the top of cookie, the top of the stripes, actually. Okay. And then we'll just do a shadow, take our smaller brush. Some of our pigment go around. - I mean, we go pull off some of that shadow. Here we go. Our food strength cookie 12. WC 10 Chocolate Crinkle Cookie: for the chocolate crinkle cookie. I'm gonna show you two methods to try and get it. The challenge with a chocolate crinkle cookies to trying to keep the white white where the power of sugar is. And yet get still get shadows and the cracks in between. The first method I'm gonna show you involves using the liquid mask or the frisk it. So as you can see, the inside is like a glue thick glue, kind of like rubber cement is what it reminds me of. And here's the cap. I'm gonna take that brush that I have dedicated just to my frisk it. And I'm gonna color in all of the parts that I want to remain white. So I just did my brush and it's not quite painting like with a brush. It's more like painting with, um, like a rubber tipped where a pencil eraser is what it feels like painting with. And so I'm just gonna try and cover all the areas that I want to keep white. This is a fairly thick coat. Not terribly. I'm not trying to make it thick, but it's it is hard to work with, so I'm just gonna go over it enough to create a barrier between the paper and the air. And then when I put my pigment over it after the first it has dried. That area will remain the same. Color is the paper. It does not take long to dry, and you should not be leaving your bottle of brisket open for any length of time. Aside from when you're using it now for my little white spots slouches over here swatches. I am trying to be very random. Nothing. I don't want any particular shape. I don't want circle that it wants squares. I don't want hard angles. I want to look like the cookie cracked. Well, it was baking. There is a slight odor with the frisk it so kind of similar to rubber cement, so be sure to make sure you work in a ventilated area. The beauty of all these cracks is they could be very haphazard. They don't have to follow any particular shape, and it'll look even more realistic because of that. It's a good project toe practice your first get painting skills, okay, and I'm looking at this. I kind of like the way it looks and my dad just a little bit here, Okay? I'm sure to close that tight. And as you can see, there's a whole layer. Frisk it here. I'm just gonna let this dry and then I can remove it. You know, for the 2nd 1 we're not gonna use brisket. This is if you don't want to use for escape. Don't have. Frisk it. You can try this technique. We want to be really careful. We're gonna wet the whole cookie, but not terribly wet. And we're gonna add are dark colors on top of this. But we're going to really try and make a lot of white or colorless, painless areas. Okay. We don't want this to be too wet. Now, the back of the cookie there is some black to it, but not it's really a darker brown. So I'm gonna take my brown, my birth number and a little bit of blue. It's a nice look. Extremely look. Nice. A little more the burnt number. Here we go. So now I'm just gonna leave some dark spots or put some dark, dark spots, leaves, um, white spots just throughout the cookie. You don't need to fill in every area with the darkness. Um, if you do, we're gonna add a layer of wash. So we could There is some salvaging it, but we're still gonna try and leave a good portion of the cookie not painted. Okay? And I'm gonna have just a little bit of the black over here and mixing in some of our color just to give a nice deep color. Not not just a few spots of that just for shadows. Variation on the cookie. And now I'm gonna just work on a little bit of an outline, barely bringing my brush to touch the paper, trying to do short little strokes instead of a one long stroke going around. This helps me create the shape I want and there's a little room for correction. Great. So I'm gonna go back and add just a little bit more pigment right on top of the existing pigment. I want this going to be really dark, but not black. Great. Now we'll let this dry will come back and and layers to our cookie with brisket. When that dries and we'll go there next layer with our frisk, it lists Cookie for the cookie that has the frisk it. I just realized that I want to add a few spots that were very tiny little dots of the white brisket. So I'll take my toothpick. Just dip it in, not too much. And just add a few dots here and there trying to keep it very organic. Like it just a little spot of, um, powdered sugar when the cookie is all said and done over here, maybe just one more. Okay, well, let that dry. Come back and are layers. Now for the chocolate crinkle cut cookie. Now for the chocolate crinkle cookie, we have our painting that has the dried. Frisk it. You could see the color changed from that opaque to somewhat transparent. And we have the one we did with the just the paint's that also dried. So we're gonna work on this one right now. Um, we want the background, and because we have the first get, we can paint right over it. It's not going to let the paint leak into where the brisket is. I'm gonna take a nice wet brush with dark color on it and just paint around where I want nice brown pigment. I could hear its squeaking against the pigment against the frisk it where the wet paint brush goes. You can also start to see all the spots that we put the brisket on. So I want to add some variation with brown dark brown, a little bit of black. Then we're gonna let this dry just gonna go around the outer edge. Even where I put the frisk it after this pigment is dry will remove the frisk it, see what we have underneath and some spots of just the black or shadow. Great. We'll let that one drive and I will work on when we used for the paint. So now what? Our goal is to try and preserve the areas that we want to keep white and that we want to add more white too. So I'm gonna add wash. We talked about Washington with another cookie and says it comes in a tube just like water color and it just squeeze it on your palate, and you can use that you can pay directly with it, which is very intense, or you can dilute it with a little bit of water. I'm gonna use my second largest brush wet brush not terribly more damps and wet, and I'm just going to add a little more of the white and you'll see that it does. Um, it's a little bit transparent, a little bit translucent, I should say. And so to prevent that, you need to build up a lot more color. He might have to do more layers may have to use thicker wash, but we're using it for highlights. We're not doing a painting with all the wash and you will see that the white that we have here and the white of the GHALWASH are going to be very different looking colors. So on this cookie, this white is powered sugar that is captured on the highlight the high parts of the cookie . And so the black is actually the cookie underneath That hasn't the power tripper didn't stick to when it baked. I think it's a pretty cookie. That crinkle cookie. The thing that the crinkle cookie is, we don't want rounded edges. We want sharp edges of possible can. You had as much of the white, um, powdered sugar part as you like, so you think, fits. You want a cookie with a lot of powdered sugar could do most of it. Fat sugar. You want just a little bit A hint of powdered sugar? That's fine, too. So after we add our cracks, go back and just sit there. Any areas that I can see for sure that need a second layer of the GHALWASH. I'll add them now so it can dry and I'll add a little bit of spotted texture. Sometimes there isn't spots. And the cookie. I want to recreate that. Ideally, we want to keep the center of a cookie. Slim. What lighter than the outer edges. We can do that by having a little more white in that area. We can actually add a darker a perimeter if we wanted. I think this is coming out. Well, I don't know the layer over here. Okay, well, let that dry. They will have the final touches 13. WC 10 2 Chocolate Crinkle: So now our chocolate crinkle cookie is dry. Um, the bottom layer that we added with the dark and the dark brown are here. This spot that looks yellowish, very tacky. That's the frisk it that's dried. And then we have our cookie that we covered with wash. So we'll start with this cookie. I'm gonna try and remove the, um, frisk it. Where you can do this is that you can use your finger and just kind of peel it back, like in grade school, removing rubber cement and that will take it off. Or you can use the eraser and it just kind of adheres to it. It's so sticky that the first gets six to it, and then you could pull it off. I think, actually, this will ripped out well enough to use my finger. And you can see the little dots are also coming off. And those other ones that we used with the toothpick to apply. Okay, great. So, as you can see, we have the two crinkles, the to crinkle cookies, different methods. One used the go wash. So it had to clear the paper, then the dark pigment than the go wash on top three layers. This had the paper which was protected by the Frisk it in just the one layer of pigment. So it's a different look. Um, we're not done with it. We still have to add final touches to both. We'll start with, um, are one that we used brisket on. I'm gonna take my second to, um, second, smallest fresh. And I want to create a little teeny, teeny, teeny, teeny little bit of shadow on this, um, this white stuff that we preserved, it's a little too stark white for me, so I'm gonna cover them all with, um, all the bigger spots, not the little teeny white spots, but the bigger spots with this Clearwater. Now, this has not had any pigment on it. So, um, the paper is unchanged Any type of time, there's pigment or water on the paper. It will change the fibers, but because this is the first time, or using water or pigment on it, it's almost like a brand new paper. Okay. And their worker create a very, very light blue just for shadow. It's going to take a little cerulean blue and mix it with water. But that's way too dark for what I want. I want just a hint of blue. Great, No, but taking our tiniest brush with Chinese brush and just add a little bit of color to the edge. And when it dries, it'll drive even lighter, and it'll just give a little hint of variation in the white. So light blue, it's almost gray. Okay, let's set that aside. Let that dry. Now for this one, the one that we use the wash on, I won't create a little bit more shadow right up against the wash. Somebody need a dark color for that very dark brown. Okay. And I'm just gonna line up against it, go all the way around trying to preserve those interesting shapes and then around the edge as well. And here we have the white. I'm going to just follow that through all the way, trying to give the illusion that the, um go wash and the area that was left white from the pigment were one and the same connected. And here I'll go around this watch from this side as well. Here we go. Also going around the perimeter of the cookie just to highlight that not gonna bother outlining the little dots. Think I'll just leave them be as they are, but will outline this area around here just to make it look more shadowy. And I think I just have this little section to do here. Outline here as well. Overall, our little edges go great. So now come back to this one. We will add our shadow around this cookie again, just with a clear water And the teen. C'est pigment. Here we go. What? And I'll just smooth out the edge here. Okay? Way will add a shadow on this one as well. And then we have done two variations of the chocolate crinkle cookie, one with a resist and one with wash on top. - And here is gonna press up against the edge. There we go, our chocolate crinkle cookie. 14. WC #11 Bonus Lesson: video, We're gonna be painting iTunes or Cookie. Now, the Windsor cookies are actually two sugar cookies or a cookie made with, like, walnuts or some nuts sandwich together with a raspberry filling in the center. Now the raspberry filling looks very dark. It doesn't look classic red fire, engine red or anything. Um and then it's covered with powdered sugar. So we're gonna try and create that on this cookie we're not gonna use. Frisk it or masking fluid. And we're not gonna use go wash either. We're gonna try and leave the paper white to resemble the powdered sugar. We're gonna do that by not using Clearwater on it by just using the paper. So let's see if we can't do that. First thing we do is paint my cookie. I have the top layer of cookie as well as the bottom. So I'll take some of this caramel color kind of diluted because we're gonna add lots of layers. And I'm just gonna go around the bottom edge, the perimeter to make the bottom cookie. No, on the bottom cookie. I want to have a little bit of white showing between the two cookies just to show the barrier, The difference between two cookies and then on the top Cookie. I'm gonna go around very lightly right up against pencil marks. I'm just gonna make a little bit of a barrier with the, um, caramel color pigment just to create the edge of the cookie. Really? It's just to give a border, even though you can't really necessarily see it on our, um, reference photo here. So from there, I'm gonna take a smaller brush from Clearwater. I'm just gonna go over the edge just to make it a little rough. We don't want us uneven line, and we'll go back and add another layer just too rough in that up. Even more so. That's dry. Nice and light. Which is great, especially for our very pale cookie. No, I'm gonna block out with a paper towel, give that a moment to dry while we work on the bottom layer. So for the bottom layer, but actually switched to my a small brush, keeping it moist. And I'm just gonna pull some of the pigment from the bottom layer. I want to keep a white foundry between the two layers of cookies, so I'll go back and I'll add another layer to the bottom. I don't take a clean brush with clean water. Still keeping a distance between the two cookies, and that's just fades out the dark caramel color to to the white. Over here. There's not a lot showing, but we'll see if we can't make some kind of radiant. Okay, so now we'll work on the inner edge of the cookie, the inner edge of the of the heart shape. We'll do the same procedure. We will take our caramel color. Just outlined the heart right now. We'll work on the filling next. Okay, Come over the heart. Okay, so now we've established a boundary of the cookie with the cutout heart in the center. Now I'm gonna take water and just water down a little bit of the caramel color, and now we're just going to go a little bit of a jagged edge, and we're doing the jagged edge. We wanted to look like the powdered sugar is coming up to the edge of the cookie can. This should be a very pale color. And we know we can get back by lots of layers and by thinning it out with some clear water . Okay, so this looks pretty good. I'm over here is a little bit uniform, so I'm just gonna go in there with some Clearwater and see if I can't break that up. And if I can't break that up, we'll just add a little bit exposed. Okay, so I'll take my very fine brush just a teeny bit of the caramel color just to give a little more of a jagged edge meet. And now we'll work on the filling. We don't want the feeling to be uniform. We want there to be exposed parts of the white paper, and for this reason, it will look like highlights on the filling. So I'm gonna take my really dark red color, and I'm gonna try and paint, leaving some of the white exposed. And the more white you leave exposed, you can always go back and fill it in if you think you left too much. So again, I'm gonna work on doing a perimeter first. And I don't want it to bleed into my cookie. So I'm trying. I'm creating quite a bit of a perimeter here, and then I'll go back and add. Okay, So I added some more pigment. Good. At a few more layers of this. I want the color to be nice and brilliant. And I do like the exposed white that showing I think that looks really nice. Okay, Gonna use my extra tiny brush. Give me a little bit more control on some of these areas. I like to have a white border between the filling and the cookie. Somebody trained Maintain that. But yet I still want to make it a little thinner than it is great. Turn this around. I'm gonna come back. Just a little bit of red just in a spot where I think there's still some, um, wet pigment. And I like the variation that's giving. Coming with a little bit of pink, dark pink as well. Getting that creates just a little variation. And when it dries, it'll add a little interest toe are feeling it won't look smooth and glass like it'll at as little texture and some bumps. Now, the finals to final steps. We have to add a little bit of texture of the top of cookie to resemble the powdered sugar . So, by what we're gonna do for that is we're gonna add some Spitaels areas where the actual cookie is showing through because the cookie showing through, we want a very pale caramel color. Now, we're just gonna do a few little, um, shapes here and there, not making a pattern or anything. Just adding a little bit of color. Have trying to stain paper very haphazardly. I think over here is going a little bit of clean water. Dilute that a little bit. I'll take my paper towel and just dab it on. This will lighten up some of pigment, press it into the paper else. So that looks really nice. Last thing to do is now at our shadow cast shadow. Take some clean water. Just go around the edge of cookie, the outer edge. Have a little wet perimeter, taking a little bit of gray, just making outline of the cookie. Okay, and then I'll take some fresh water and just go over the edge to soften it of it. 15. Project & Class Summary: thank you for joining me today for watercolor cookies. Here are all the cookies that we worked on today. Each one was a different lesson, and we use different effects for each cookie. Some used wash to obtain white highlights. Some use masking fluid to keep the paper white, pristine and others. We just left the paper untouched to create the white that we looked for. I look forward to see your posts in the project section. Try your hand in the cookie two or even a baker's dozen. Thanks and see you again.
