SPRINGERLE PAINTING 101

Some of my friends have been asking me to make a little video on Springerle painting. So I finally did one, using a stand for my cell phone and a little hyperventilation. If you need a recipe for the dough, check my recent post on the subject with a click here. All luster dust I use for the cookies are from ohsugarart.com.

I hope the video gives you a general idea of the whole process. I used a small, simple cookie to demonstrate the technique, but of course the exact same approach is used for larger cookies. The colors dry very quickly and you can move from one to the next without any need to wait, which is not the case with Royal Icing, unless you are doing wet-on-wet. When I am painting a series of cookies, I like to pick one color and use it on several of them, clean the brush and change to another color. That streamlines the whole thing.

Most of my molds come from KitchenVixenMolds, Gingerhaus, and TexturraWorkshop.
