Gilded Tarot Cards
I gilded my own Tarot cards.
I’ve always wanted a gilded Tarot deck but I don’t like any that I’ve seen. That inspired me to make my own gilded cards. I got some paint markers and rubber-banded my cards super tight. I colored one side at a time, pinching the deck close together where I was painting. I crossed my fingers while they dried, undid the band, and voila! I was surprised it worked so well. As you can see in the last photo there was some bleeding onto the face of the cards but it blends ok with the borders, I don’t mind at all! I think they came out fantastically.
I was happy with the results so I did silver on another deck. It’s less noticeable but still adds a touch of glimmer.
