When making her 3-D Christmas fireplace cookie scene, Julia spared no effort to make it as lifelike as possible. Take Santa’s portrait here, for example. As dainty as it is (about 1 1/2 inches tall), it’s hyper-realistic thanks to Julia’s use of a molded cookie (for the frame) and edible paper (for Santa’s image). A bit of luster paint was used to finish the gilded frame. For info about how to make this portrait and the many other details in Julia’s fireplace vignette, see this video. And to learn how Julia put the entire scene together, check out this video.
