This is the eight sided die (D8) in my 'Center Arc' dice series. The numbers on this die are arranged so that the sum of the numbers on two opposing sides is always nine. Great care has been taken to ensure that the die is well balanced, so that rolls are fair.
This is best 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 steel version of this die weighs about 6.5 grams.
This die is also available as part of the complete 'Center Arc' dice set, which you can find here
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.
