Excellent. For the last few months I’ve been racking my brain to think up adjectives formed by N + ed that can work on their own, i.e. not in compound adjectives. The only word that came up is “talented”. And now you’ve just given me two more. 

So “talented” must be a bare (non-modified) -ed adjective. It fits Hirtle’s description.

Another one is "gifted."
