Celtic D20
eondesigner @dereksena That looks great! (if I say so myself), hope you are pleased with it. Thanks for sharing :)
eondesigner @dereksena I'm not sure about sealer on the polished brass, although shapeways states under the material description that it will tarnish over time so I guess not. the inking is really easy, I've done a tutorial over on my Cthulhu D20 if you want to give it a go.
eondesigner @dereksena Hi, There are some extra shots from happy customers in the comments that maybe what you are looking for. I found this photo of the Celtic Dice Set (in Bronze steel) on my PC.
eondesigner @dereksena Thanks for your interest in my dice. I don't currently have a steel D20 to photograph, I only have one in Raw silver, if you have a look through the various material pictures there's a great shot of it in there. Also, take a look at the Celtic Set for more pics, its the same D20. The steel materials have a 'softer' look, the process isn't as detailed as the precious and semi-precious metals. You can just see the print lines in the first photo but these aren't really visible to the naked eye.
eondesigner @lugiou As they are digital models I have precise control over the volume of material used in each die. I have measured the volume of each die's sides and made sure they are the same, which ensures that they have weight evenly distributed for perfect balance. These dice don't just look pretty they're made to be rolled. Hope this helps.
eondesigner @dereksena Unfortunately Shapeways has deemed the detail on some of the dice too fine to print in some materials, so unless this changes the full set won't be available in polished brass, sorry.
eondesigner @soccerplayr22 I've not seen it in matte bronze steel but it should look pretty similar to the steel one in the photo only slightly darker, it'll take up to 12 business days before it ships.
eondesigner @JamesGr Looks good in polished silver. Size is closer to 20mm, but yes about typical for a D20. Thanks for taking the time to upload the photo. I hope it rolls well for you.
eondesigner @hidoka8 I'm pleased you're happy with it. Great to see it in polished brass, thanks for sharing.
eondesigner @hidoka8 Hi, thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately Shapeways has decided the numbers on the D20 are too small to print in the plated metals. Polished Brass would be the nearest visually or Polished gold steel, although brass is better quality than steel and retains more of the fine details.
Celtic Dice Set - Solid Centre for Plastic
eondesigner @bonniepoler Thanks for the suggestion, I did consider a bigger set with a percentile in there as well as the basic six, but it doesn’t really save much money buying a bigger set, opposed to adding individual dice. Having them separate also allows people more flexibility with materials, enabling them to mix and match. So for now, I’ll keep it simple.
eondesigner @iri282 Excellent work! Hope the other five look as good as the D4. Thanks for sharing.
eondesigner @wardweyns They look great in green, nice work enhancing the numbers.
eondesigner @inkspray I used white detail painted with watered down acrylic miniature paint, but I believe its possible to get a better effect using tea to stain them, though i haven't tried that out yet. Like Whystler's Nocturnal watch. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/whystler
eondesigner @Swallowtail4887 I haven't seen the set in purple but I can see how that would be a problem, my best suggestion would be to give the dice a very light dusting with a lighter colour acrylic paint. If you're into miniature painting grab some white (or any light colour you fancy) and 'dry brush' each dice so that the paint only sits on the raised surfaces, this will exaggerate the numbers and make the dice much easier to read. Start with a very light coat and build on that, its easier to add more than to remove it. Hope this help.

Celtic Dice Set
eondesigner @mmatijaa It seems Shapeways is able to ship to your country. Check the following link to be sure: https://www.shapeways.com/support/shipping
eondesigner @Aesairas Hi, a friend of mine uses the grey steel set and they have been fine, they do come out quite dark, great for gaming though unless you play by candle light. I expect over time the grey will wear on the surface but this will add to them I think as the lighter coloured steel will start to show through. Glad to answer any other questions you may have.
eondesigner @tannytheratty @gary23 As they are digital models I have precise control over the volume of material used in each die. I have measured the volume of each die's sides and made sure they are the same, which ensures that they have weight evenly distributed for perfect balance. These dice don't just look pretty they're made to be rolled. Hope this helps.
eondesigner @Rencouple86 They won’t have any official representation but no doubt there will be a few role-players at GenCon wielding a set.
eondesigner @fijibutton Just weighed a silver D20 and its 14g (0.5oz) aprox. I imagine other metals will be about the same. Nice idea to wear on a necklace, although the sharp edges of some of the dice could be uncomfortable against skin.
eondesigner @rwfsmith All the dice are carefully designed so that each side has the same volume of material. I've tried and tested them in various metals and plastics and all seem very random and don't seem to favour any particular number.
eondesigner @Balmogrin Thanks man. Those are printed in Stainless Steel, although the colours do vary a bit, they tend to have a bronze tint as this is used to strengthen the printed steel.

Celtic D10
eondesigner @tristanfey No sorry, with Shapeways new pricing it wouldn't save much compared to buying a dice multiple times.
