Order Acrylic Dice (Shadow)

acrylic dice shadowAcrylic, 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.

Acrylic’s 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 standard box as chosen above.

    Received my order literally less than a week from order date. Numbers are very slightly less visible than photos let on, however these dice exceeded my expectations after seeing some negative comments online. Even though Artisan Dice won’t claim these as precision due to manufacturing specifications, I can state with relative confidence due to very level surfaces and sharp corners and non defective materials, these acrylic dice are far superior to other dice that are quoted as “fair” in both quality and fairness. Very pleased, will purchase from here again and exclusively if I need more polys.
