showing you my cocoa painting on a cookie - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Very unique, had not seen this type of painting on cookies. Does give the appearance of Old World. Very nice job.

Now that is something very different, I really like the look. I'd like to see more.

RB recommended Cocoa and Chocolate Painting - A Confectionary Art by Marsha Winbeckler (bought it right here on CC..not expensive at all)

It is great..easy to follow and has some good ideas in it!!

I have just finished some more which I will post in a sec...
If anyone has any experience with colouring rubber stamp cards, you could do this easily!!!

I took a cookie and wasted it by drawing in pencil what I wanted my design to look like and then I just copied it on to the other cookies..I find it easier if I have something to go by.

Good Luck and post pics if you do some..btw..they taste great with the sweet icing and that little bit of choc...
I want to try on a cake sometime too...

Gorgeous. And speaking as an artist myself, your painting is NOT amateurish. You did a lovely job!

I just might have to try this - a twist on my usual media of choice - watercolor!

Going to ask a really stupid question....
Could you use Crisco solid instead of cocoa butter? I'm assuming it's used just for thinning down. Or is there a real reason behind the butter such as taste? I might never do this, but you both did such beautiful cookies, I'd just like to know. You are both so talented with this!

I don't know if you can use Crisco in place of the cocoa butter...PM RisqueBusiness as she taught me how to do this..I am sure she would know... I don't remember reading about that in the book I got either..

Oh those are wonderful! I really love the dog one you did. Perfect! Just perfect.

I wish I could do these but I just don't think they would look as good with stick people on them icon_lol.gif That's about all I can draw.

I'm JEALOUS of your talent. icon_redface.gif
