Simple Snowman Cookies (Tutorial)

I'm seeing lots of Valentines cookies from others already......
but I'm too in love with snowmen and snow to let this season pass.
I hope to devote the next couple of weeks to WINTER.

But then will come Valentines Day cookies in all their glory. :)

These snowman faces got their shape from a stretched out diamond ring cutter.
Smooth out the edges to form the top hat.

Outline and flood the top hat in black 10-second glaze.
Allow it to dry overnight. 
(I have a really hard time with black bleeding into white glaze.....so I take every precaution.)

Outline and flood the white snowman face.
As you can see in this photo, I immediately added black sixlets for the eyes 
and black pearls for the coal smile.
However, now that I know black sixlets will bleed against wet white glaze,
I recommend that you let the white glaze dry before adding the sixlets.
Use black glaze to "glue" them on.
(The black pearls had no problem with bleeding.)

I didn't want to mix up orange glaze for the carrot nose,
so I added a huge round nose using white glaze...under the eyes.
After it all dried over night, I added pink cheeks by brushing on dry pink pearl dust
and painted the nose orange using Americolor orange gel.

Sweet snowmen......I luv 'em!
