Help. I am looking for a die about the size that you would find in a die box but with a five sided shell. It is for something cool that I read in Tarbell. I have never seen one of these at a dealer.... but then again, I have never looked for one either!



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Holiday!

Smile
Thank you,



John Zander

Decent dice with shells are impossible to come by. If you are a moderately competent DIY guy, then it's easy to make one up yourself.



Get a cube of wood. Now make a shell from thin plastic (available from a hobby/craft store). You can make the shell using five squares and scotch tape, or if you're more capable, use three pieces and plastic cement. Now color the wood and the shell (acrylic paint is best), and then stick on spots. Because both dice were colored with the same paint and spots, the dice will appear identical.



Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.



Bye for now

Hi John,
check with Marty at Martini's Magic, he recently sold his woodworking division of the co. but is still making all the close up and custom items and I'm sure he probably has some die box die and shells around that should fit your need. If not, he is a really great guy and very reasonable if you need one made up. I saw a posting from him in the repairing props section, so check there and E-mail him, there is always a chance.
All The Best
