Dry brushing is a super easy painting technique. It can be used pretty much on any hard surface. From wood antiquing to walls and you can even use it on plastic (I've given my old flower pots updated look with this technique).
I used this technique on my square cookies. Now you can either use regular food gel coloring or airbrush color. With both, make sure you only apply tiny bit of color to the brush bristles and even after that dab your brush onto a clean dry paper towel to remove excess and then use short strokes to dry brush the icing.
