Airbrushing Patterns


When I posted this Father's Day cookie, I got a lot of questions about how I was able to airbrush that diamond pattern. I'm here today to show you! 

This is a photo breakdown of the large plaid pattern. Using a diamond and a diagonal stencil, I was able to airbrush this 2 toned diamond pattern!

Directions: Airbrush on the diamond pattern. Allow to dry. Using the diagonal lined stencil, line it up on the edge on the diamond pattern. Spray and allow to dry. Then line up the diagonal lines on the opposite side and spray.


For the 2 toned Large Plaid pattern: Start by airbrushing the large vertical stripes (from Salsa Stencils). Once dry, repeat on the opposite side. Then take your diagonal lines stencil (from The Cookie Countess) and cover all but one of the openings with cling wrap. Line up the open diagonal line on the center of your plaid and spray. Once dry, repeat on the opposite side.


And for the 2 toned Diagonal Plaid Pattern: Airbrush on a diagonal line and allow to dry. Then line up a second diagonal line, leaving a space the same width as your stencil opening. Spray and allow to dry. Repeat the steps on the opposite side. Once dry, use your stencil and fill in those openings with a second color. If you want, you can also add another set of diagonal lines (both directions) and you'll have that top example cookie!


Here are the links to The Cookie Countess and Salsa Stencils, if you are looking to purchase the stencils! 

Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions!!
