Metal Bucket of Mums Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

I'm seeing metal buckets everywhere these days.

I guess it's a new trend.....but I've always loved the rustic look they bring.


To make a bucket of mums, I used cutters from SugarBelle's Shapes Shifters set.

This is the wedding cake/sand castle cutter with the rounded edger.


As seen in the photo below, cut out the shape and trim it with the edger.

If you'd like to make just a plain metal bucket, use the gift cutter and cut off the bow.
(see photo below)

Outline and flood the bottom of the cookie with grey glaze. After it has dried for 10 minutes or so, add a line and the rivet marks as shown below.

Outline and flood the top with orange or gold glaze to represent the background of the mums.

After an hour of dry time, use a large round tip (I believe this is a #10 round) to indent "mum marks" in the partially dried glaze.

Over the top of the indented glaze, add dots of mums.

After another hour, add more indent marks for more dimension. Also, add a bucket handle in grey glaze.

Dry overnight.

Combine silver luster dust with vodka or almond extract, and paint the bucket.
