How to Decorate a Sparkling Shamrock

Posted by Anne Yorks on Thursday, February 22, 2018

I switched over to GREEN this week. It's been so fun. We have a fun leprechaun tutorial coming tomorrow. And today, a SPARKLING sharmrock.

Check out this sparkling shamrock video! It shows the new EDIBLE Jewel Dust. We now carry 20 colors in our shop!

 

 

This photo has no filter (or editing)...and the sparkle is so beautiful. 

The little bottle in the video is called a dust pump. We have a small and large size. Check them out here (you'll have to scroll down just a bit to see them) - https://www.flourboxbakery.com/collections/decorating-tips It's just dust in there, no extra liquid. 

If you're planning to regularly use the jewel dust it might be a good investment. The dust pump is helpful, but not necessary. If you don't want to invest in one, you could also dip a paint brush in the jewel dust and tap it off over the cookie to shake on the sparkle.

After posting this video, I got a lot of questions about the projector. It's a pico, and it's the same projector I posted in the last video (the Snuggle is Real cookie). 

Here are a couple helpful links.

This is the pico I'm using, available on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/AAXA-Technologies-KP-101-01-Projector-built/dp/B005TAXDPK/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1519321984&sr=1-3&keywords=pico+projector

(FYI....my pico a few years old, and there are more models. So, do your research. Mine still works great, so I haven't updated/upgraded)

I use this tripod (also available on Amazon) - https://www.amazon.com/Limostudio-Camcorder-Digital-Cameras-Camcorders/dp/B005CRKX3K/ref=pd_bxgy_229_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B005CRKX3K&pd_rd_r=6NZM2HZZJGT3MVVJA5RE&pd_rd_w=9nmAe&pd_rd_wg=C6A9j&psc=1&refRID=6NZM2HZZJGT3MVVJA5RE

I also got a lot of questions about the airbrush. I am using the Cookie Countess Airbrush System in the video. 

We carry the AirGenie Pro and the Cookie Countess units. I like both and use both. The AirGenie Pro has a few extra bells and whistles (like a pink tote bag for storing your airbrush) ... my favorite features of the Pro are the extra gun and quick metal connect (making switching guns super easy if using multiple colors). The countess unit is great, and is a good value. You can check them both out and do more of a comparison here - https://www.flourboxbakery.com/collections/airbrush

Also, mark your calendar! I'm planning on decorating Easter baskets and eggs LIVE on facebook on March 1.

 

 

Happy Decorating!

    Where do you get the font to use on the overhead projector?

    Beautiful…love the look of the Jewel Dusts! Do I need to do anything special with my airbrush after using them? I’ve heard metallics can clog the needle. Right now, I use vodka to clean with.

    What template and holder are you using to put the stripes on the Lucky Charm clover?
