Some Easy Ways to Finish Chipboard

With the growing popularity of chipboard use on projects, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways to finish raw chipboard.

On the shells, I first applied snow writer by Deco Art with my finger for texture, and then added some soft pink and brown 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.

Two more great ways to finish chipboard are glazing for an epoxy look and stamping painted chipboard - can't wait to try these techniques out too so stay tuned!
