Straight away you’ll prep your tipless bags with the correct consistency royal icing.

Once your design has dried you’ll turn your food paste into pseudo watercolors.
There arenโ€™t whole lot of hues weโ€™re going to use, so the emphasis will be on tone and making sure you achieve 3D effects of the hummingbird, andย  to each of the individual flowers as well as the lily bloom as a whole.

Watercolor Monochromatic Painting brings focus to some of the important properties of this medium. Watercolor is a transparent art medium which means the royal icing surface contributes to the final color appearance. To achieve a very light purple/grey you need to apply very watery paint. A common technique among watercolor artists is to build up the tonal values (levels of darkness) by applying successive layers of washes on top of each other. The more layers of paint you lay down, the darker the appearance. This is an important watercolor technique known as glazing

Now it’s time to tackle the feathers as they seem like theyโ€™ll be really hard. Mainly because they are a visual texture of lot of lines using a single monochromatic hue.

Donโ€™t worry โ€“ Bobbie will show you exactly how to do it!
