Altering Chipboard with Glimmer Mist
This technique I am showing you today came by accident when I placed a piece of chipboard on some water .... I won't go there of why water on my scrapping table!
Grab a piece of acetate or similar product which won't soak up your glimmer mist ... (acetate acts as a resistant mat).
Place your chipboard onto acetate and gently pour glimmer mist over the chipboard
With your fingers swish the chipboard over the glimmer mist until completely soaking it on both sides
Then with your finger nail or object with a point, like your tailor awl, peel apart the layers of the chipboard till you have the desired effect and then let it dry ... it will take a few hours to dry depending on how much glimmer mist you have used
You can use so many different mediums to finish them off ... here are a few examples
For scrapware barb wire or scrapware chipboard cogs ink with silver or black first then soak in Silver Glimmer Mist for a metallic look (we did this at a recent "sold out" class here at my2angels)
