Actual "tin foil" is too thick, though I have used it in artworks by embedding it in paint, I don't think it would work on cards. Anyway, a fascinating technique that I hope to try someday if I ever have too much time on my hands! (That and my illuminated manuscript, another thing that I need to make time for, someday!) It seems like it would take a lot of time but would be quite meditative. Like coloring your own cards but kicked up a notch!
They were hand made by Myamo and were up for sale briefly. Sadly not while I (or Gerbear ) was watching. He only made a few.
