- Orange 10-Second Glaze
- Light Brown 10-Second Glaze

Take the "spooky ghost" cookie cutter and reshaped it into Indian corn. :)
On parchment paper, use a #4 tip and make glaze icing "corn kernels".
Use the heat gun technique to prevent each kernel from caving in the center.
Don't hold the gun over the kernels too long.....or they will be splotchy the next day.
Mine ended up splotchy.....but I decided that corn kernels look excellent when splotchy. ;)
Allow the kernels to dry for several hours....preferably overnight.
Outline & flood the corn kernel part of the Indian corn with gold glaze.
Add the dried "kernels in rows on top of the wet gold glaze.
After the gold glaze has dried for an hour or so.....
outline & flood the husk part of the Indian corn with ivory glaze.
Wait another hour and then
use the boo boo stick to add character lines to the husks.
Dry the cookies overnight and then
paint the husks with a mixture of Americolor gels (gold, ivory, tiny amount of brown)
and almond extract to thin it a bit.
I also found the sheen airbrush colors gave my fall cookies an extra pizazz.
I especially liked the bronze, copper, & gold colors.
