Optically Clear Acrylic (Minion’s Blood)


Acrylic, or poly(methyl methacrylate), was invented in 1928 and first marketed in 1933 as safety glass thanks to its shatter resistant nature. Since its inception Methacrylate has been synthesized in about a dozen different methods leading to twice that many trademarked names for poly(methyl methacrylate). Names like Lucite, Plexiglass, ACRYLITE, and Perspex are all essentially the exact same thing with some very minor differences due in part to how the methacrylate was produced. The PMMA we use in crafting our Alchemist’s Dice is manufactured by Lucite.

Acrylics are used in many applications from aquariums, to helmet visors, and even bulletproof body panels for armored vehicle. It’s also used for aircraft canopies and in making ballistic glass. Depending on the application, acrylic is either produced in a casting process or it is extruded, as is the case with the acrylic beads used in injection molding. We chose cast acrylic rod as our base material over, the much less expensive, extruded acrylic as the casting process gives us a significantly increased optical clarity.

This process is labor intensive but as you can see in the image to the right, it produces far superior results to injection molded acrylic dice.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer use laser cut acrylic boxes, all of our dice have been upgraded to include our round, steel tin.

    If the dice are machined, then why do they have rounded edges? Shouldn’t they be straight edged and very exact like Las Vegas gaming dice?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      the slight radius from from the polish/buffing we do to bring die surface to an optical clarity. the edged are still FAR more crisp that normal dice.

    Just ordered these dice(the 14th), payed for them but have not heard anything about when I will be receiving them.

  3. Rudy

    I keep thinking about ordering these dice but for the price I would like them machined with crisp, exact edges similar to those found in Vegas gambling dice. Could you do that? I understand that you buff/polish them for optimal clarity but I would rather have exact dice that give me an equal chance at all numbers rather than have crystal clear clarity. Moreso, because of the price paid for them. Is this possible?

      Hey Rudy,

      Take a look at this link.


      Pretty much, even the Gamescience dice (which have sharp edges) aren’t “random”, also, did you know that the dice at a casino are changed out every shift for concern of wear?

      If your preference is for sharp corners, I would look at gamescience dice, or I would ask on the facebook page. But I think that the mechanical differences in the die’s profile is more than offset due these dice being machines rather than injection mounded (like gamescience dice)
