  2. Very nice. I love the Steampunk D20 and the lightweight "another" die (for some reason it looks to me like it's made out of cufflinks!).

    Excellent Gumball! I like having the opportunity to see these dice printed in their full glory. Thanks!

    I have a few more dice coming and I might... Just might... Be in trouble with the little woman and have to cut back for a while.

    I might also have purchased one of your wands in glossy bronze. I would have posted pics, but I couldn't get a good photo yet.

    It's great to see my designs in someone else's collection! Did you get them in bronze or is that just how the picture turned out? In any case, you're much better at representing them photographically than I am.
    Thanks for the order!

    I figure if I'm a good boy, I can sneak another order out after my revenues come in around the 17th.

    Proposed Mathematical Proof - If (Paypal out) is equal to or less than (Paypal in), no harm no fowl! :rolleyes:

    As for the bronze question, no they are all SS. Wish the gears didn't fuse in processing, but they are still cool dice! Wow did the d20 ever catch the polishing matrix they use. Spent a whole bunch of time cleaning that sucker last night.

    Yeah sorry, couldn't resist ;)

    Oh crap, it said "here", I meant "her"
    (that made it sound a lot sadder ;))

    Anyway, during my first orders, it helped my budget negotiations a lot if I got my wife something every once in a while ;)

    Yea, the D6 tests that I got had a lot of the polishing medium stuck in the crevices. I'm anxious to get some tests done in the Bronze Matte finish because I think it might hold more detail and bronze fits the steampunk motif better. I also want to deepen the bevel on the gears so that they look less fused.

    She loved this die in green

    20-sided die with leaves

    this pendant in transparent
    Dragon pendant v1

    and I'm thinking of getting her these for xmas.
    Wing Earrings - Stainless Steel

    Truth is, I did overspend, but I had a 20% off coupon. It was a BARGIN!

    After antiquing...



  17. Ooh, that looks really cool! I always think silver/steel models look so much better with a bit of black patina in the crevices; it really enhances the detail.
    What did you use?

    It is a hit or miss solution. Sometimes it works great, like it did on these two and other times is doesn't do squat.

    Filed down then highlighted with black acrylic paint.

    I love how the antiquing looks!
    Would it be possible for SW to offer that as a finishing option?
