For anyone else looking to dye and paint White Strong & Flexible, I posted my process here in the forums: http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=14774&start=0&

These are SOOOO incredible. I ordered them in White Strong & Flexible, then used Jacquard's iDye Poly fabric dye to dye them black (I soaked the dice in water overnight, then mixed the dye in boiling water, added the dice and stirred for about 20 minutes, popping them in the microwave whenever the water stopped steaming). After they dried I dry brushed them with metallic acrylic paint and they turned out beautifully! Thanks so much for creating these, they're gorgeous. Here's a pic of mine after dye :)

I use dice from this set every week for our D&D sessions and I haven't noticed a bias.

What is the balance of these dice like? Will they produce truly random results? I wonder if the difference in mass between the numbers 1 and 20 would be enough to skew the weight.

I've received a set this week, gold plated glossy. Very nice. Surely playable. Thery are a gift for a close friend but I'd keep them for me if I could. Very nice work Wombat!

Thanks so much!! Ordering them right now, in Antique Bronze Matt. :)

Yes, these are about the same size as a standard set of polyhedral dice. The antique bronze is a patina on the stainless steel. I have two sets in antique bronze glossy, the Large Dice Set and Overstuffed Dice Set. I store them in my dice bag with all of my other sets. So far, the Large Dice Set has lost a bit of patination on the sharp edges from rubbing against other dice. This highlights the edges and looks pretty good in my opinion. The Overstuffed Dice Set has not lost any patina from rubbing on the other dice and look the same as when they arrived. I do not know how much of the patina, if any, the Cage Set will lose over time from rubbing against the other dice in your bag.

I love these and plan to order these in Antique Bronze Matte, but had a couple of quick questions before doing so. First, are they the same size as a standard set of polyhedral dice? Also, the Antique Bronze is stainless with bronze overlay, correct? How durable is the overlay, is it going to fade or chip off? Thanks!

Try inking them by painting the inner layer with black acrylic and then polishing them with a cloth. This should make the numbers stand out more from the inner structure. Glad you like them!

This set is my first shapeways purchase - they are amazing! I would like to ask though - is there a way to get the inset numbers to stand out more? mine look a bit dull, especially in the D12 and D20 variants; they don't carry the same level of highlight as the outer surface. Really though, these dice are tiny works of art, and I love them.

I got my order. I chose the 20-sided from this set and a separate 4-sided, both in stainless. The design is wonderful - they are hefty and quite sturdy too! Overall, I feel very privileged to have what I consider a functional piece of art that will be with me for a long time to come, which is why I think the cost is fair even if it was a big expenditure for me. For anyone considering one of these sets I think it's a sound purchase, but I did have a couple of problems buying my two singles. One was stainless and the other was gold/bronze even though I ordered both stainless. There was another minor issue but I've contacted customer service and depending on what they say I'll decide whether to save up for more. Thank you.

Yes, they are quite sturdy in stainless steel. I use mine every week and have not yet noticed any wear.

Let me just make sure, I've been so close to ordering but I'm looking for playable dice. Is the stainless steel set playable and strong. For the price, I'm hoping for them to be as durable as they are eye-catching. Thanks :)

They are quite light in plastic, and are more appropriate as decorative objects only rather than fully functional gaming dice.

Wombat-- How is the weight of these with the Indigo? Is that heavy enough to be used for dice, or do they really only work with stainless steel?

Thanks Kevin! That means a lot to me.
