Quote from talkingfawn »Any basic tutorials or videos on making white border cards black? I'd like to do it with a minimum of bleed on the borders of the card so I don't get some officious little snot calling a judge on me about my Nether Spirits.
Quote from GamerMykee »I have a question about sealing alters. I was wondering what kind of sealant to use I have a spray acrylic sealer and I absolutely hate it, I spray on a few thin coats and it give the cards a spotty texture and rough feel. Am I just using the wrong product should I be using a brush on varnish and If so does anyone have any suggestions? I am trying to get my work to a professional quality but I have been having a lot of trouble finding out which products the pros actually use. I am currently using golden fluid acrylic and a faber castell pitt xs pen for my paintings and acetone and prismacolor markers for my drawn alters
Quote from Werewolf_Rawr »Hey everyone, I have always been a fan of alters. I lean far more towards the cards that recreate the image as opposed to extending the borders of the card. I have some artistic talent but no experience with this kind of work. Until now I hadn't been inspired enough to actually try my hand (but at the same times I've always wanted to). I'm at the point where I have the idea, I've started a mockup that I've attached, and I'm ready to go.
I think I want to go the marker route as I have the exact opposite of steady hands so I'm terrible with a brush. I'm looking for guidance or a how to. I have only been able to find tutorials for card extensions, not image alters.
I'm working on Beastmaster Ascension - it's going into my casual squirrel deck and will be Squirrelmaster Ascension. Thank you for any guidance you have on how to go about this. I'm starting to wonder if acrylic is the only way to get it done.
Quote from ButcheroftheCards »I am planning on making a 3D version of Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, replacing the art of Derevi with the art from Zapdos of the first set in the Pokemon card game (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81KbDi0SnSL._SL1500_.jpg). I love pokemon, and love derevi as a card, but really don't like his art. I was thinking I'd need 2 copies of Zapdos and one of Derevi. All I'm thinking I need to do is cut out the square where Derevi is and put it on top of a Zapdos. Both cards are exactly the same size so as long as I find a solid glue, it should be ok.
Does anyone know any good tips and tutorials for 3D altering magic cards? I imagine there will be trouble making sure the cards stick to each other but other than that it seems pretty straight forward.
For anyone with 3D alters, how do you sleeve these things?
Quote from Frostdragon4 »After a card is altered, do you spray anything on it to prevent running and streaking after drying?
Quote from milo_bloom »Just a question about a simple alter- what's the best way of covering up the other options on a checklist card?
Quote from Dechs KaisonWhat the Griselbrand, Xen. Just when I thought your stuff couldn't get any better, you churn out that Jeleva banner. It's gorgeous.
Quote from Phoenixius »Hello,
I use acrylic paint for my alters.
Unfortunately, I feel that my colors always have a hazy appearance, impossible to reproduce the brilliant appearance of the cards.
