This set was a commission, but I should make some more polymer clay skulls to go in dice, because I really like how these ones turned out! I do have some commission slots open, atm, as well. Info for that is over on my new shop site :D
I splurged and bought a few sets of @catbatart’s dice. They arrived today! They’re really pretty and surprisingly light, I can’t wait to play with them <3 I went ahead and got the C grade and they’re lovely. I can only imagine what the B and A grades are like. 10/10 would recommend them if you’re looking for custom dice!
(The packaging was really secure, by the way, with a good sturdy box. They arrived without being brutalised by the post office, which is an… unfortunately recurring problem for me lmao)
I’m gonna go stare at the holographic colors forever now bye~
I asked my best friend Avery, who has synesthesia (where you see color when you listen to music and voices), what color Joey Batey's voice was.
She told me his lower range was purple (cornflower) and red (sweetheart miniature roses) and his higher range was yellow (buttercup) and green (fern). She told me it was unusual for a voice to have more than two colors. All the flowers and plants are from my garden I picked and pressed between the pages of my many tomes.
I inked them in white first with a layer of antique bronze over it so that the bronze is "hidden" from the inside of the dice and doesn't overtake the brilliance of the flower colors.
The name comes from a lyric from The Horror and the Wild, a song by Joey's band The Amazing Devil. Do check them out!
At my request, Turhan's Bey Company made a set of Earper dice.
There's the Angel Shield and Vacation Nedley, a Peacemaker that glows under UV light and a tiny, sexy dragon, Charlene and tasty tacos, and a Stetson-y hat and doughnut (probably vanilla-dipped) with sexy purple fog.
Today’s dice: an EPIC ADVENTURE of the tiniest, sparkliest gold velociraptors in a blue glitter sea.
The first step was sourcing a creative-commons velociraptor STL that I could tweak in blender until it was low-poly enough that it could be resin-printed at 14mm. THIS WAS HARDER THAN IT SOUNDS, because that 14mm (to fit in the molds) represents the longest dimension — once I molded them in silicone and cast them in sparkly gold resin, printed raptors looked like this:
They are UNUTTERABLY TINY. SO PRECIOUS AND SMOL. And they were SO CHALLENGING to mold, lol
Part of the reason why my commission waitlist takes so unspeakably long is that it’s important to me that when someone comes to me with something as important to them as these wee raptors were to this client, I can turn that flash of whimsy into reality.
