We are slowly adding new items and rebuilding our store after being hacked by a company selling appliances. Please feel free to visit us on Ebay http://stores.ebay.com/Two-Scrap-Happy-Sisters . If you happened to make a kitchen appliance purchase, we are in no way related to the pirates who hacked us, nor do we know who they are.

Working with Chipboard

Chipboard is a porous product. Therefore, thin liquids such as distress stains and mists tend to absorb into the chipboard leaving little if any residual color on the chipboard.

Examples of media that work well with chipboard are acrylic paints, paint dabbers, Stickles, and colored gessoes. For use with stains and mists, an application of gesso, either clear or white, will seal the chipboard and allow the color to adhere.

For a textured appearance, you can apply a liquid adhesive or double-sided scrappy tape and then dip in products such as Flower Soft, glitter or even tiny glass beads.

Interesting effects can be achieved by layering your colors. We like to use paint dabbers, but acrylic paints with either sponge pieces or daubers work just as well. Dab a base color on the chipboard and then dab one or more additional colors on the chipboard as well. This works so well when trying to achieve a shabby chic look. One of my favorites is a black bottom coat with gold or silver paint dabber dabbed over the black.

Be creative and have fun!!

We welcome special orders on chipboard. We maintain a mailing list and notify our customers when we will be placing a chipboard order so that they can make special requests. If you would like to be notified when we will be placing an order with Dusty Attic, Blue Fern, Scrap FX etc, send us an email and we will add you to our list.

Best regards, Helen and Kaye
