Hey guys, I've been tinkering with painting cards as a hobby, a mixture of extending art on some of my favourite cards and more recently, taking really cool old card art, extending it, and then attempting to put the text of newer cards onto it to be custom proxies for those cards.
But I've hit a problem. Painting on the text is hard. Crazy hard. I'm wondering if anyone here knows an easier way then attempting to painstakingly paint on each character with a paintbrush? Is there something easy that I'm just overlooking? I also tried various calligraphy pens, some of them work but writing on (even dried) paint seems to wreck the nibs very very quickly and those things are expensive!

I would try printable decals for toy models. You can print them on an inkjet printer clear coat them and apply like you would a regular decal. I would clear coat your card and try do this after FYI since it is applied with water you don’t want to mess up the paint. They also have a medium to put on top of the decal to help it blend into the model via your card.
Also art supply store sell scrapbooking and have rub on letters maybe try them but they problem with that would be matching text.
I’d definitely try them both on a extra card before attempting.
