But First, Ed's Advice on Painting With Water

In Maya's use of water on these spectacular cookies, and not high-proof alcohol or the Color Solution (click here), it is ok and will not damage her royal icing for a few reasons.  First, this is a brushed embroidery technique, not a flooded royal icing where it created a glossy shell. If you apply water to a fully flooded cookie, there's a high probability of creating pitting when using water. 

But because of her technique, in this instance, even if pitting happens it will only add to the texture she is aiming for within the waves.  If you wish to paint solid metallics with luster dust or solid colors with paint powders, it's always best to work with high-proof alcohol (ie. everclear) or the highly-rated Color Solution. 

Now For Maya's Instructions!

Shiny seashore cookies inspired by some of my favorite products from @thesugarart 🐚🤍 Decorating details below and a full walkthrough in stories. Would you make these?!

Shells: Spray a silicon mold with a generous amount of @thesugarart Diamondust (I used white and pink). Pop in room temperature sugar cookie dough and scrape flat. Pop out shell shapes and place on a sheet of rolled out cookie dough. Place tray in the freezer before baking.

Waves: When the cookies have cooled, pipe a thick inconsistent line of white flood consistency icing across the cookie. Taking a damp brush, pull the icing away from the piped line to thin out and create texture. I also used an airbrush with no color to gently blow out the edge of the wave line for a natural look. Apply a second wave line if you want a fuller look. Allow to dry.

Color: To make the cookie pop, I used @thesugarart edible elite color in dogwood, pastel blue, turquoise, white and sterling pearl in wedding gold and brilliant sparkle. starting with Dogwood, dip a small fluffy brush in the color, tap off excess, and buff into the surface of the naked cookie where it meets the wave. This creates a shadow or waterline effect. I followed that with a layer of wedding gold. For the waves, I dry dusted with brilliant sparkle sterling pearl. If you want to add more color, gently loosen blue powdered color with water and apply to the bottom edges of the waves. Clean your brush and blend and soften color. Finish with a splatter of white powdered color loosened with water.
