My Favorite Chipboard Treatments

Hi there bloggers... Vicky here today to share some ways to finish raw chipboard. Let's dig right in!

To give the shells texture, I first applied Snow Writer by Deco Art with my finger and then once it dried, used brown and pink chalk ink around the edges.

Here I used Tim Holtz crackle paint and light brown chalk ink on the edges for definition.

Simply pink acrylic paint on the dress form - so easy!

I stained the clock with walnut ink for a vintage look. Gets really dark in the cracks  - so awesome!

A little Tim Holtz distress ink and gold Stickles on this flourish.

This rustic look is simply Tim Holtz distress ink applied GENTLY, directly from the ink pad and leaving some spots bare.

 Here is Glimmer Mist at it's best - saturated and shimmery

Here is more Glimmer Mist in a gold and then bronze Stickles over top on the edges.

I still have two more things I'd like to try as finishes... glazing for an epoxy look and stamping on my chipboard so stay tuned!
