Rusted Effect Chipboard Clipboard

Posted on August 9, 2012 at 1:50 AM


I'm still having lots of fun playing around with the Twiddleybitz Rusting Powder. By adding a mixture of bleach and vinegar, to the powder, you can get some really interesting effects.


Here is the second project, a mini clipboard, covered all over with the powder and rubbed off, to reveal a 'rusted' finish.



I've added a torn stamped background and my favourite Stampin Up 'Delight in Life' wording stamp and then finished the project off with a pink flower to give a splash of colour. I love these screw top brads, which were an interesting 'find' in my local craft store.



This powder works especially well on metal, giving a really 'aged' look. The clip was covered with glue and powder in exactly the same way but gives a much more realistic effect.



If you like the 'aged' or distressed look, you'll love this rusting powder. If you have used this on any projects, why not upload a photo to the Wall of Fame in the Photo Gallery!


Watch out for the next project, a 'rusted tag'.
