Swamp Water

I colored my icing with Forest Green and then watered it down to a “flood” consistency.  I put it into a squeeze bottle and then started covering my board using an off-set spatula to spread it out.  I didn’t like the 1 tone of color, so I took another color called Avocado and dipped a paintbrush into the color, and then dotted the green water with it, then spread it out using the spatula.  It created the look I was going for.  While the icing was still wet, I added the gingerbread blobs and the pretzel log, along with everything else I wanted in the swamp water. project2011swamp
