Exclusive tarot decks by Carol Herzer
All of the decks shown here are individually made, by hand, and take many hours of skilled work to do. No one anywhere else is making anything like this, it is a process I evolved over years of work. No more custom orders at this time.

Glitter is very hard to photograph and does not show up much in most pictures. The only way you can see the true effect is in real life. Light is life. The glitter, fluorescent, and iridescent paints do not show up well in pictures, as they are light effects. I work with many colors of fine and superfine glitters, all ends up under lamination when cards are finished, and never will come off.
Fluorescent is not neon, it is just a purer, clearer, stronger version of colors, much like you see in many flowers, look at zinnias, nasturtiums, and others.
Iridescent is a translucent pearlescent paint that allows the underlying image to show through, but interacts with it, creating luminous shimmering effects.
These are highly crafted original art decks and the process of making them had evolved over time, over many years. Each deck is special and unique, and no two of them can ever be exactly the same. All decks are laminated with the finest quality flexible lamination on both sides of the card. They are hand cut, therefore not precise. There will be minor imperfections, do not expect them to be like manufactured commercial decks.
