Chipboard is so versatile, there are so many things you can do with it...when I paint it I use acrylic paint.

For a distress, crackle finish I like the Tim Holtz distress paint. For a smooth finish you can use the Studio paints, but I usually just get the cheaper ones from M's or J's.

Any paint will work. Making Memories is thick, Apple Barrel is more runny, any acrylic paint will be fine, it just depends on what look you want. Crackle paints are fun as well.

I like using fabric paint some of the colors are shiny and bright (and very inexpensive) but you have to let it dry real good, and if it's not shiny enough u can add some diamond glaze on top and u can also use diamond glaze to glue it to your page.

I use glue dots as the adhesive for chipboard.

I use any kind of paint. Then I might ink or glimmer mist on top of the paint. I've also used stickles.

My favorite paint for chipboard is the dabbers, but they are not the most economical option. You can get them in basic colors at craft stores with a coupon, though.
