A few weeks after Daluyong, my friend Dandi announced that she was going to have her first Pinta Cookie workshop at Papemelroti! I’ve blogged about her brand Agueda Manila a lot of times here in my blog. You could say that I’m a pinta cookie veteran lol.
The workshop kit consists of 1 square cookie, 2 round cookies, a hexagon cookie, and a paint brush. The “paints” were also included, and we were given the freedom to choose our own colors in our palette.
Hi Dandi! ♥
Some of the paints that we could choose from. ♥
I was grouped together with my blockmate Tin. The first cookie we painted was the rectangle cookie and we were to paint wood grains. It reminded me so much of our first year in UST doing our “plates”.
With the rest of the class. ♥
After painting wood grains, Dandi and her team collected our cookies for drying. Next up is the Hexagon cookie and marble painting! ID na ID ang peg HAHA.
My white marble paint. ♥ How do you paint like this? Just like watercolor. Add a generous amount of water or vodka, and then add the paint on the dry parts of the cookie for detail or on the wet parts so the paint would spread.
Beautiful marble tiles with gold leaf! ♥
The next tasks were floral wreaths by Sav and my own flower painting demo. I did a quick peony painting on my square cookie. Insisting everyone to use liquids on the cookie and letting the paint do its magic. After my demo, everyone had free time to create their own subjects on the square cookie.
My floral wreath that consisted of poinsettias and berries; my peony painting demo; a rose painting for Tin (referenced from a rose given to her by her boyfriend).
Tin gave me her extra cookies YAY so I did more flower paintings: a blue hydrangea and an anemone.
After we finished painting, everyone got all of their cookies for coating with corn starch.
Coating your cookies with corn starch will give your cookies a matte finish. And its quicker to pack since waiting for the paint to dry will take a while!
I also saved my IG Stories of this event in my Highlights.
Overall, it was a fun and successful workshop. Congrats again, Dandi! I hope there will be a part 2 workshop soon. I’ll volunteer! ♥
