Will the royal icing stencil lines begin to bleed when our customers “paint” the cookie? I would love to do the PYO. I do not have an airbrush so i would need to do the royal icing on the stencil and I am just wondering if the lines keep. :)

The Cookie Countess replied:
No, it won’t! We actually warn against using airbrush to make PYO cookies because it will bleed, but royal icing is how we always do it.

The Cookie Countess replied:
PYOs should definitely always be done with royal icing, since airbrush color will immediately wipe away with a wet paintbrush. Royal icing stands up to the painting much better and won’t typically bleed unless a brush is repeatedly dragged on the lines. You can also use lighter colors (even white!) to scrape on your PYO outline depending on the stencil design, so that smudging color is even less of a problem.

Not sur what I am doing wrong. I cannot get a crisp stencil it is not a fine line it is thick.

The Cookie Countess replied:
Hi Dinette, in order to get crisp lines using your stencil you’ll need to make sure your icing is the right consistency. We recommend a toothpaste like consistency for stenciling PYO cookies.
