This is the twenty sided spindown
life counter die (d20) from my Floral Dice collection.
This die is numbered in a spindown pattern, with consecutive numbers placed next to each other. This makes it easier to use this die as a life counter in games such as Magic: the Gathering. It has been designed to be well balanced so that it gives a fair roll.
This d20 measures ± 26 mm (1 inch) high and weighs ± 23 grams in steel.
This die is part of a collection. If you are looking for a non-spindown version
of this d20 (as used in various tabletop RPG games), similar dice with a different number of sides, or full dice sets with this design, please have a look at the full collection
Please note that when you order this set of dice in the stainless steel material there will most likely be some particles of polishing medium stuck to the dice. This polishing medium looks like small grains of sand, and these can be removed with the use of a pin, or by shaking the dice inside a plastic container for a while.
To enhance the look of these dice it is possible to ‘ink’ them. To do so paint the outside of the dice with a thinned acrylic paint, allow the paint to dry, and then buff the dice on a piece of cloth. This removes the paint from the higher parts of the design and leaves It behind in the lower areas, creating a higher contrast between these areas. This technique works best with dark colors of acrylic paint.
