What to paint on playing cards?
The cards have an aqueous finish that you would find on a standard deck of playing cards. Acrylic paint should stick no problem.
How do you glue playing cards together?
I brushed a very thin layer of Elmer’s rubber cement on the “inside” surface of each card, then let it dry for 30 seconds before pressing them together and lining them up.
What is the best material for playing cards?
Plastic cards are the most durable, highest quality cards and are used in almost all casinos. Vinyl cards are a good, slightly cheaper choice, though they will bend and won’t last as long as the 100% plastic cards. Paper is the cheapest and least durable — the corners will fold, and you’ll have to get new ones often.
How do you get acrylic paint off playing cards?
While isopropyl alcohol will take off acrylic paint, you need 99% pure isopropyl alcohol, even then there is likely to be some water in the solution so be carful when working at the cards edge other wise the cardboard may swell up.
Can you put Mod Podge on playing cards?

Can you use Modge podge on playing cards?
