    True - though extenders will save your life with Acrylics. Oils take forever to dry too. Once you're finally done with working the paint, it's just such a wait. And in this environment - it can take a year (ah, humidity, how I loathe thee at times.)

    I can't wait to see everyone's cards.

    and when I changed it to JPEG to place on the site, it changed the way it looked somewhat
    yep I guess that is why they warn you in Photoshop that some of the detail maybe lost.

    Here is the Ten of Pentacles. I really had some trouble getting what I wanted here. I may have another go at it later, but I like how this one looks. This is the last one for me.

    Next time you're shopping for paints, look at the additives that they sell nearby, usually near where the sand and other texturizing materials are. You'll see tubes that will say things like "Gel medium... gloss" - Some of them will be extenders, others will change the quality/texture/etc (and some of them will extend the paint too). Usually it gives the acrylic a slightly longer drying time, not as nice as oils, but a good 10 minutes?

    10 minutes would be better for my wooden boxes that is for sure

    This is the second go at the 10 of Pents. I like this one better. It is more intense, with less detail, but better feeling. More artsy than I the other one.
