I made a dodecahedron out of tessellating flowers a while back and thought, "I bet I could make a set of dice like that." So I did.

Here's a group photo:

I think I'm going to coat them all in a protective clear coat and hope that will keep them from chipping too easily, but I probably still won't be rolling them on hard surfaces.

Mixing organic and geometric design... The result is really convincing (and colorful Smile). Congrats.

I tried acrylic varnish on Full color Standstone and it works quite well.


So many things to design, so little time...

I used a spray on clear coat and I think they've turned out pretty good. Think I'm going to do this with all my sandstone models from now on.
