Ever since I was introduced to Liz's (Arty McGoo's) amazing painted cookies, I have wanted to try painting cookies myself. I'm so glad I finally got around to it because I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
I sort of felt like a kid trying out watercolors for the first time, but instead of paints I used paste food coloring, and cookies instead of paper:) I'm no artist, but I sure had a lot of fun!
The cookies were prepared as usual, but outlined and filled in with white royal icing only, which was the perfect cookie canvas.
I allowed the icing to dry overnight to make sure they were good and dry before I attempted to paint them. I also viewed Liz's fun video tutorial again about painting cookies, which helped tremendously!
I have a collection of honey pots and one of my favorites (you can see part of it in the photo above) provided the inspiration for my beehive cookies. I did use a couple of edible markers for adding some of the details.
If you like to decorate cookies, and you haven't tried the painting technique yet, I highly recommend it!
Thanks for the inspiration Arty McGoo!!!
