Following is the list of things you need to make your hexagonal dice box out of resin:
- Dice Storage Box Mold
- Epoxy Resin and Hardener
- Ash White, Fog Grey, and Black Color Dye
- Mixing Stick
- Small Cups with Thin Spouts
Below are the detailed instructions that you have to follow to make a hexagonal dice box:
Prepare the Resin Mixture
First of all, to begin this project, you need to prepare your resin mixture. You can create a beautiful marble look for your hexagonal dice box by mixing different colors.
Take ash white, fog grey, and black tinted resin mixtures in separate containers. Make sure that you use adequate amount of mica powder in your individual resin mixtures. Less quantity of mica powder will make the mixture translucent while more mica powder will make it opaque.
Use ash white resin mixture as the primary color.
Pour a small quantity of fog grey and black mixtures in it.
Use a mixing stick to lightly combine the three mixtures. Do this carefully to create swirling patterns only otherwise the three colors will blend, forming a single new shade instead of a marble pattern.
Add the Marble Resin Mixture to the Mold
After you have prepared the resin mixture with the marble effect, pour it into the hexagonal dice box mold.
For this project, you might need to make two batches of marble effect resin mixtures for the two components, container and the lid, if you are using small cups. In this situation, you have to be cautious of flash curing. Flash curing is when you are mixing a lot of resin, and then you leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. In this condition, resin can reach up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and release chemicals which are harmful to your health. So, you have to be careful when dealing with resin. After you have filled both the components to the brim, you can leave them to cure overnight.
Demold and Use Your Hexagonal Dice Box
After about twenty-four hours, when your project has fully dried, you can carefully demold it.
Now, you can use it to store your dice or give this beautiful dice box to your loved ones to make their day.
Beautiful dice boxes are a great way of showing your appreciation and passion for the dice and similar gaming products. Whether you are a gamer or a collector, it is time to get your hands on resin hexagonal dice box supplies to start your personal project right away.
