A leather dice cup with a tooled design on the top and borders around the rim and lower part of the cup. The lid is fully removable, but fits quite snugly. A great gift for the tabletop gamer or dice player in your life.
- 5-6 oz. veg-tan cow leather.
- Edges are rounded and burnished.
- Backs and edges are colored black for a sleek look.
- Comes with some mystery dice!
- More designs available--ask to see what I've got.
Every execution of a design is a little different. If you'd like, you can have control over these details. For dice cups, details include border style and slight variations in the design itself. You may want only wolf paws for the Druid cup, or prefer your Bard lute to be plain rather than adorned with circles, for example.
Please keep in mind that this is only for small details--if you need me to alter the pattern or redraw parts of a design, I'll be happy to do so, but I will have to set up a custom listing for you so please send me a message first.
Please note that the color of your piece might vary slightly from the featured swatches due to the variance of both screens and leather. The brighter colors (green, purple, and blue) have greater variation than the browns and black.
Why does blue cost more? All of my stains are a one-step antique process except for blue, which is two steps. For this reason, all custom work that uses my blue stain has an additional charge.
If you want your cup to really pop, you can pick a secondary color as well, which means that the design and border will be a different color from the base. It is usually painted, allowing for a huge range of colors, including metallics and white. If you want a color not listed, or a specific shade, include that in the custom requests box. (If you choose this option, the thread will by default match the secondary color.)
Care and Feeding
My leather pieces are covered in a water-based sealant that is water-RESISTANT but not water-PROOF, so avoid submersion and torrential rain. For added water resistance and suppleness, they've been treated on both sides with mink oil. For cleaning, you can spot clean with a damp cloth, or use a soft-bristled brush and a glycerine cleaner like Oakwood. You may wish to occasionally treat them with another coat of mink oil and/or a waterproofing spray like Gardmore Rain and Stain Repellent. Don't store your pieces in direct sunlight, which can cause brighter dyes like purple, blue, and green to fade. The color of leather develops over time, as it can tan much like human skin does.
