Get Well Cookies: RX Pill Bottles and Pills (Tutorial)

My sister had me make a fun set for her caregivers last year when she was very ill.
I made several different medical-related items.
The pills and bottles were personalized with a very special prescription. :)

To make pills, cut & bake cookie dough in small circles and ovals.
Outline and flood the circles.
After they have dried for 45 min - 1 hr, use a thin spatula to put a small crease across them.
For the capsules, outline and flood half of the ovals.
Cover them in nonpareil sprinkles
Allow them to dry for an hour or so.
Outline and flood the other half of the oval.

I hand-cut the pill bottles after finding a good outline when I googled it.
Outline and flood the bottle with a orange-brown colored glaze.

After it has dried for an hour or more, outline the lid with white glaze into three sections.
Fill in each section separately and allow to dry before adding the next layer.
For the middle section, once it has dried for 45 min - 1 hour,
use a long thin tool (cake tester) and add vertical ridges.

Once it dries overnight, paint a white square on the bottle with Americolor Bright White gel.
After a few hours of drying time, use black food color markers to add 
the lettering and details.
