do you use any sort of spray to set your cards after they dry ? if so, what is it ? if you don't mind ofc
Personally, I find that I don’t really need it. Golden brand fluid acrylics bond particularly well with the surface of cards. A friend of mine has some that he’s been playing with for… wow it must be 6 years now. They are still totally fine, not cracking or chipping or anything.
Some people use a spray and there’s nothing wrong with it. Extra protection for the art is always good. Though some sprays will have a lingering smell. I’ve noticed that glossy spray tends to smell a little stronger than matte spray for what it’s worth.
However I DO have to seal gold leaf. I use a brushable sealer from Speedball. Gold leaf can actually flake off or stick to a sleeve if you don’t seal it. A friend brought it to my attention one day so I’ve been very strict that I seal them since then.
IF ANYONE OWNS A CARD THAT I ALTERED AND THE GOLD LEAF HAS FLAKED/CHIPPED OFF LET ME KNOW! I’ll gladly fix it free of charge, all you have to do is pay for shipping to me. I’ll pay the return shipping.
