Bark and Chipboard

Hello Everyone and welcome to another Copic Oz tutorial!  Today I'm playing with Chipboard and Sticky Barc!  Sticky Barc is a new product which are self adhesive sheets of ultra then wood - made of REAL wood!  You can stamp, ink, colour, varnish and anything you would normally do with paper, you can do to these wood sheets as well!  Oh, you can even put them through your inkjet printer!!  How Cool!!  :)

As you can see, there is a removable backing sheet on the back of your sticky barc sheet.

Did I mention you can die cut it??  This piece has been cut using the La La Land Crafts Heart Fence Die.

I really like the look of the fence cut with this wood, however, I've decided to give it a bit of a golden effect by colouring with Y21 which is a lovely buttery yellow!

How about Chipboard?  

You can colour chipboard in exactly the same way, by simply colouring direct from your marker, or even airbrushing!!  Remember the chipboard is darker and very absorbent, so lighter colours don't show as well.  I've used RV55 which is a mid-toned pink.
 Of course, you can leave your chipboard like this and it looks great, or you can apply some X-press It Clear Gel glue for a glossy effect!  (Make sure you have a scratch mat underneath!!)

Even out the glue with your finger so that all parts of your chipboard are covered evenly!

 Use your Sticky Barc and Chipboard to create a sweet hanging piece of art - I thought this would be cute in my daughter's room!  :)


Hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial!  Why not play around with some new surfaces and see what fabulous projects you can create??!!

Happy Colouring!
