Instructions and Tips for Use
These stencils are very versatile as can be used with all sorts of different media to produce different effects.
Simply apply food colour while holding the stencil in place. Powder, liquid or paste colours can be used by letting down with alcohol or rejuvenator fluid and dabbing on with a small soft sponge (the sponge from Rainbow Dust would be ideal!)This technique is best used on Sugarpaste or Royal Icing.
You can also use petal dust or lustre as a powder simply dusted onto the design with a soft dry brush remove excess powder before lifting the stencil.
For softer icing such as cupcake frostings the ideal method would be an airgun - this is also brilliant on other types of icing as you can get detailed shading into the design with practice.
To get a more 3D effect on harder icings such as sugarpaste and Royal Icing you scrape a little royal icing over the stencil. Carefully lift the stencil off to leave a raised image.
