Just got a new tool that I saw demonstrated at Cookie Camp.....an airbrush! So exciting. 

I've only used it once.....so I'm no expert, but I already can see quite a potential for its uses.

I received my airbrush from Karen's Cookies. She already sold out of her first order of airbrushes, so she is waiting for a new order to come in. Hopefully by the time they arrive, we'll have these tools figured out enough to write some tutorials and then maybe others will take the plunge and get one too. :)

I decided that fall leaves would be a good first project with the airbrush. The application tends to be a bit splotchy (if you direct to do so).....so that worked well with leaves since they are never actually one solid color in nature.

I outlined and flooded all my cookies with a "off white" or ivory type color to start off with. White works just fine.....but I wanted them to have a more earthy tone to start off.

The instruction that come with the airbrush are minimal.....so it was kind of funny to try to put it together. Mike (Karen's Cookies) helped me out. Unfortunately I took these photos when I didn't have it set up correctly.....so don't look too closely. lol

I decided to paint on a little more detail with some Americolor gels after the airbushing session dried some. 

Next post.....I'll show you the end results.

Where did you get the cardboard screen? I tried my airbrush once only, with navy blue :)....my kitchen was blue for days. I could not see it, but every time I would wipe something, the rag/sponge was blue :)

Where did you get the screen? How big is it? I used my airbrush only once, and I was wiping blue color from everything for weeks. I could not see it, but every time I would wipe the counter or wall or floor or anything, the rag/sponge would be blue :)

Hi Pam, Where did you purchase that white cardboard box that you airbrushed your cookies in? I need one. Thanks.

I just bought an airbrush as well. I'm looking forward to more of your tutorials as they are some of the best out there.

Thanks so much for your kinds words, MollyPitcher28. :)

Sadly, my airbrush broke and I am not able to use it anymore. :(

I've been painting with the airbrush colors since I can brush them on. It works well.

There are several great air-brush tutorials out there. Look around. I'm sure you'll find them.

Thanks for writing. I'm sorry I'm not much help with the airbrush. ♥
