What is your dice making process?

I handcraft my dice with care from start to finish in my home studio in Seattle, WA. I use a high-quality, locally manufactured epoxy resin for my dice. The resin I use is made for artists, but is also suitable for crafting items such as tables and countertops, so it’s close to indestructible under normal gaming conditions—please don’t attempt to destroy the dice, just take my word for it.

I craft my molds from master dice that I modeled with a font I customized myself, so my dice are distinguishable from any other dice on the market based on that alone. The inclusions for my dice range from various artisan glitters, flowers I have picked and dried in my studio, digital art inserts, 3d printed models, to hand-sculpted polymer clay pieces.

I pour dice in small batches of 1-4 sets and cure them in a pressure pot to produce crystal-clear dice. After the dice are soft-cured (24 hours), I remove sprues and flashing. After the dice are fully cured (72 hours), I sand and polish each dice face by hand. My dice are NEVER glazed or coated, ensuring that the dice will age well and be able to handle frequent use, as I hope you will enjoy using them for all your gaming sessions!

How do I care for my Crafty Bunbun dice?

They don’t generally need special treatment. If you wish to clean them, I recommend a dry paper towel, or if necessary a light sponge bath with soap and water, followed by a pat dry. Do not soak them in liquid for extended periods of time as this can damage inclusions near the edges of the dice. Try to avoid setting them in the sun for extended periods of time as all resin dice can yellow and fade over time when exposed to sunlight.

Do you take commissions?

No, sorry I generally do not. My reasons for this are two-fold: 1) I can’t fulfill the amount of requests I get for commissions, so I prefer to only sell my dice publicly as I think that’s a bit more fair. 2) I have a lot of ideas for new dice that I want to focus on, and I do much better as a creator when I can work on what I feel passionate about at the moment.

Are your dice balanced?

Short answer is yes unless clearly noted otherwise.

Saltwater test: The saltwater test is a float test to make sure that dice do not float with a tendency towards any number(s) being in a particular position. As a rule, my purchasable dice pass the saltwater test. This includes sets with inclusions such as my Butterfly Garden and Unicorniverse sets. I am conscientious of what types of materials my inclusions are made out of to prevent balance issues in my dice. There may be specific dice in the future that are not weighted properly for gaming; This would be the case if they have a large, heavy inclusion such as a hand-sculpted clay monster. This will be clearly noted in the listing and probably be limited to chonky D20s that are meant to be displayed as art pieces. As an aside fyi, it is also possible and common for dice to fail the salt water test but still roll randomly. Many commercial dice I have purchased do not pass the test but still function fine. See below.

Chi-squared test: This is an alternative test that I use on some dice that involves rolling them hundreds of times and inputing the data into an excel file to calculate whether the rolls are within the expected results for randomness.

Long answer is that a better question to ask is, “do your dice roll randomly?” To which the answer is also yes. Dice can have minor to moderate weight variations without actually having their randomness affected. This has been tested by multiple companies and individuals. The things that do affect randomness are large weight discrepancies, such as a large bubble or heavy inclusion and, even more commonly than weight, the way in which the edges are shaped. High quality handmade dice are no less balanced or random than average commercial dice, and in many cases are actually more evenly weighted, as commercial dice often have different materials used inside to save on costs, or weights added inside to make them feel higher quality, or large internal bubbles that are invisible if the dice are opaque, and machine polishing always creates a small level of edge variation, which leaves many dice with slightly uneven edges. I love all dice, and mostly all this is to say that handmade dice makers get asked this question so often that it’s basically become a meme, and I hope that the gaming community grows past the idea that dice should be heavily scrutinized in search of perfect “balance.” If they can’t grow past that, then I hope they start heavily scrutinizing commercially manufactured dice rather than dice made by individuals.

Refund Policy

If you wish to return your dice for any reason, I will offer a refund of the purchase price minus shipping costs and a 3% processing fee. If the dice are defective, the shipping and 3% processing fee will also be refunded. In order to be eligible for the refund you must notify me within 3 days of your order being delivered, and you must return the purchased dice in their original condition. The refund will be initiated 1-3 days after the dice are returned in satisfactory condition. Refund policy applies only to dice purchased directly from me (including my website or IG sales).

If your dice are lost or damaged in the mail on the way to you, I will handle that on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the case, solutions might include a full refund, partial refund, or replacement dice set.

Covid-19 Considerations

My partner and I at minimum follow all local guidelines in place for social distancing, mask wearing, and general safety precautions. I cleanse the dice with isopropyl alcohol before shipment and wear gloves during packaging. I am vaccinated.

I saw your policy about letting me donate 10% of my purchase price to charity—What if I want to donate to a charity that isn’t listed?

The available charities are limited to the ones listed on my Charitable Giving page. I have done my best to include a wide variety of causes and organizations that I have personally vetted. If you have ideas for others you would like included in the future, feel free to send me a message at craftybunbunofficial@gmail.com or @crafty_bunbun IG.


I do my best to source sustainable packaging. My packaging is subject to change as I like to experiment, but as of writing this, my dice are shipped in partially recycled cardboard boxes that are recyclable at home. They are filled with recycled paper shred that can also be recycled at home. The dice tins are metal with a plastic window and are also recyclable at home in most areas. They are meant to be long-lasting and usable as a permanent tin for your dice or other items. Sticker orders are packed in Ecoswift chipboard (recyclable). Sticky dots, washi tape, and any other small extra materials are not recyclable to my knowledge.

My dice are made from epoxy resin. Resin is a plastic and not biodegradable. Individual artists working in small quantities have a very minimal impact relative to almost all other environmental concerns. That being said, it’s not a 0% impact and resin is not currently recyclable. I source my resin locally from a manufacturer in Bellevue, WA, and I try to work efficiently to minimize waste.

Are your dice any good?

I think so? My dice will NEVER be improperly cured or inclusive of large flaws that are not properly documented. If you do somehow have one of these issues with your dice, please contact me and I will make it right.
