...And just how do you paint these coins?
Yes, that is the question I hear most often. Good reason, there are less than 10 artists in the world painting coins. Good chance you haven't ever seen anything like this before.
In 2009, after 15 years of belonging to my local coin club, I decided I wanted to try to paint coins. With no one to teach me, it turned out to be a 3 month "mad scientist art project." I blend my own paints, with each color having it's own recipe of brands and types of paint. I let them cure for at least 24 hours after each color, preventing bleeding of colors. Quite honestly, my technique is mostly practice, and lots of light to be able to see the fine details.
My biggest pleasure is helping one of my customers find a special keepsake either as a gift or for themselves. I love hearing the stories from people on why they picked the coin that they did, and why it is a special keepsake for them.
