    very loud it sounded

    Can you say "very" here? Is only "too" possible?

    ex)...There were beautiful hand-painted pictures on the wall and a clock that ticked very loud it sounded like a timer on an explosive......

    Re: very loud it sounded

    Both very and too are incorrect. You need so.
