PostSubject: Dice I'm making    Mon Mar 18, 2013 8:01 am

My order of dice finally came from the US!
I've spent the last few days working on them.

Here are some pics:


random dice blocks



painted the pips white because it looks better with the design I used



wanted to try making green lantern dice with some special dice styles, these are chessex's phantom green in 12mm


and here are chessex's gemini black-green in 12mm. The usually come with gold pips (you can see some in the pic) but I repainted them white to match the symbol



here are some 16mm opaque lantern corps dice I made. The company I bought the dice from were out of stock of the other colours >Sad so I have to wait a while before I can do those and finish any sets.


some more 16mm ones, including some translucent


I wanted a rainbow RPG set hehe


my little pony dice, they turned out a lot better than I expected so I've ordered more and hopefully they sell on ebay


and these are all the 12mm lantern dice I have made so far. On the left are translucent and the right are opaque. Other colours were out of stock >Sad have to wait for them Sad




yay!

yea I listed them on ebay a few days ago Smile
I'm in Australia so I think my auctions aren't being seen by many people. I really thought the pony dice would sell well but no one has bid on them yet Sad
Or maybe my designs aren't that good.
Oh well, at least I have a set for my personal collection Smile

You're welcome to bid on them if you like Smile
Search for pony dice 'worldwide' and they should come up.
My seller name is dicequeen01 Smile

For me to cover the cost of buying the dice and shipping them to Australia, making the stickers, etc The 12mm lantern dice would be about $2.50 each and the 16mm lantern dice would be about $3.50 each

I'm not sure if I will bother trying to sell them on ebay anymore to be honest. I thought they'd sell a lot better. It's not worth my time if I don't make any money on them. It takes a lot of work and time to remove the pips and paint over the other pips etc not to mention it really hurts my fingers

Wow the pony ones are cool. To bad they are not etched or people may have been quicker to buy. Is it different selling on ebay from Aus?

Yea I considered asking Chessex to etch the pony designs but I wasn't keen to deal with them because they're so bad at customer service. Plus, this way I can use different dice from different companies and make them all match nicely Smile

Selling on ebay is pretty much the same in Australia as it is in USA except it's more difficult to get views/bids/sales. When I was selling my very rare and expensive Zumba Instructor DVDs and CDs, I knew they would sell for a really high price because of how rare they are, but I only had buyers from Australia and Germany looking at my auctions. If American Zumba instructors had seen my auctions I would have sold them for double.

I think most Americans just search for auctions and sales in USA because you guys get pretty much everything there. It's unlikely that someone in Australia would have something that you can't get in America. So being in Aus limits my potential sales which sucks.
But oh well that's just how it is Smile
I've decided not to list my dice on ebay anymore. I always seem to get the shipping cost wrong and end up being out of pocket when I go to the post office and send the stuff I've sold.

I get it.
Can u sell on the US site
I think they would sell better on there even with higher shipping fell I see a Canadians seller sell. 1 clix at a time with 11.00 shipping
When I help batman at conventions we sometimes sell dice there but
All my little pony stuff sells great
So there is a huge market here

I tried selling on the US site but to do that I need to have a paypal account that's linked to a US bank account or a US residential address or something. Can't remember exactly but it was something like that, something I can't really bypass. Sad
