Russian themed cookies 1 - khokhloma

I got a request to create some cookies for a Russian tea party. I had the freedom to chose my designs and I created three different sets. Today I tell you about the first one.




These cookies were inspired by khokhloma painting.

Khokhloma painting is the name of a Russian wood painting handicraft style and national ornament, known for its vivid flower patterns, red and gold colors over a black background, and the effect it has when applied to wooden tableware or furniture, making it look heavier and metal-like.

When I was a child, my mom had a khokhloma wooden box and it was full of little treasures.

So my first set of Russian themed cookies is inspired by khokhloma. I first made a shiny black glaze base color, then added the red and yellow flower patterns with green leaves.
