Thanks Bernd for following along.

Chipboard is a 100% recycled paper product in a huge variety of thicknesses.
The back side of a legal pad is a perfect example.

It's popularity has surged since the scrap booking industry began.
It is very inexpensive per sheet.

I get two sizes from an Ebay seller ("maidenange").....025" and .050" with free shipping!
Good for wall and roof card substrates.



Thanks Rob for your comments, there are indeed new ideas ahead for me..

Kevin is correct, it can be found in some craft stores, but at higher prices.

Good day Carl,

Following on your stucco walls, I have yet to try any stucco walls, my hesitation is what works best? I have some Deco Art Sandstone (like Karl O. has used before) but have yet to try it. I think Mario Rapinett has used fine sand mixed into paint. I am looking for something which would be a thin layer, like in your current project. What mixture do you think would be the best to use?
Thanks
Rich

You're welcome Carl.

I thought it looked familiar. I'm familiar with the backside of legal pads and other paper pads. Thanks.

Bernd

Rich,

Now that I've tried it this way- the joint compound seems to do the trick for me...
It's cheap, premixed- you can add paint to it, and it can go on relatively thin like I did here, between 1/16" & 1/8".

The only minor drawback could be the weight, since its gypsum, it's heavier than all the others materials mentioned.
The wall I made did have some "heft" to it.

I've been using chipboard all along and never knew it.

I always just called it cardboard. But chipboard sounds more professional, so I'll call it that from now on.

Since this chipboard topic has taken on legs- I wasted some time looking it up...seems the "cardboard" industry insists that the term 'Cardboard"... refers only to a corrugated paper product. HMMMM

I learned that saying corrugated cardboard would be redundant.

Sorry for the side-track, Carl. Time to get back to work. In fact, I expect the whole lot to be a regular Bobby-dazzler.

No worries Fred, but there is indeed a lot more to be done. Onward!

I found some chipboard 8 1/2"x 11"sheets at Office Depot that you can purchase individually for about 5 cents a sheet. I only wanted a couple sheets so I purchased 10 sheets.
I was curious too as to what they were as I thought that perhaps chipboard meant that they were hard compressed wood chips like in the chipboard that come in 4' 8' sheets used in sheeting walls so I was surprised that they were just cardboard like I have used before.
For practice in cutting out walls using my Brother Scan & Cut machine I use cardboard cut from cereal boxes, TV dinner boxes, etc.
