Meet Iza, the pretty mummy and Miu from Plus Size Kitten. I love reading about all her lil’ misadventures at those warehouse sales where we girls go ohh and ahh. Guys can never understand the thrill of fighting with thousands of other desperate woman and the triumphant moment of securing a discounted item that everyone else is eyeing.
OK. enough of that already.
Few weeks back, I attended a workshop organized by Nippon Paint together with some other bloggers. Little did I know that it’s going to be a such a fun and insightful event. We got our hands on doing some swirls and patterns with Nippon Paint. Let’s just say that we are better off blogging, except for the few talented ones. :p
The workshop started off with a brief presentation by Miss Gladys from Nippon Paint. Had you guys watched the Nippon Paint Blobby advertisement? The blobbies painted the town red, and yellow, and blue, and purple. Soooooo cute!
Apart from that, Miss Gladys also explained about the emotions of colours and how colours contrast or complement each other. For example, Pink is a soothing colour but it tends to represent physical weakness at the same time.
Before you start painting, you should not forget about applying the right coats underneath. Sealers, primers and undercoats will bring out the full beauty of your paint job, while ensuring durability and long-lasting protection.
Too complicated to comprehend? A typical example would be a woman’s make up routine. Sealer is just like a moisturizer, it tends to act as a protective layer while ensuring adhesion to the surface. Primer is our base coat, it helps to bind subsequent coats to the surface while undercoat is our foundation. It prepares the surface for the finishing coat while brings out the colour of the paint. And the last step is to choose your eye shadow or paint carefully.

It’s time to get our hands dirty! I really do not know where to start from, with gooped-up hands I chose the right colour and right-size brush for the job. Gisele from Nippon Paint suggested a framed painting with some flowers in it. First, I need to cut the sponge into the shape of a tulip and I did a pretty good job!
“Have your cheese and eat it too” from Ringo. Very cute!
Huai Bin‘s master piece has its own unique fan base too.
Apart from that, I plan to make a dramatic change in the look of my room by making over an accent wall with some strokes and patterns. I want to introduce a solid color block into my space and I’ve done some research online. What do you guys think about the designs?
