This is the D8 die in my 'Twined' dice series. The measurement of 16 mm (0.63'') is the distance between each set of two opposing faces, or the height of the die when it is lying on a flat surface. This size works very well when printed in any of the steel materials or other metals, but is also suited for strong & flexible plastic. Please note however that it will be very light in plastic. The numbers on this die are arranged so that the numbers on every set of opposing sides add up to 9. Great care has been taken to ensure that the die is fair and well balanced, and therefore throws should not be biased.
This die is also available as part of the complete 'Twined' dice set, which you can buy with
To enhance the look of the die, and to make the numbers on the die stand out more, you can do the following:
- On the metal version you can darken the recessed ares by painting the die with thinned dark acrylic paint and rubbing it on a rough cloth after the paint has dried. This will clean the paint of the heightened details, leaving them shiny and contrasting nicely with the darker lower areas.
- On the plastic version you can color the numbers using acrylic paint and a fine brush. Because the numbers are raised above their background plane this is quite easy to do.
