Art update 

Chris was making great progress then we realized we might have gone off of the art direction the product needed. After surveying a few backers we confirmed it and we reset back to an earlier draft he had. This is our current direction:

Professional Healers Kit - New Art Draft

 And here’s how he’s refined some of the scroll work:

 Workshop update:

In order to be able to efficiently deliver these to you all I needed to turn half of my garage into a workspace. That included getting some electrical work, venting, storage, and work tables. That’s coming along swiftly. The general contractor is almost finished with the electrical work and will be installing the venting today.

 Purchases update:

  • Boxes - They have arrived!
So many boxes x_x

  •  Leather - it's been purchased and is arriving Friday
  • Corks 
5000 corks!
5000 corks!
  • Vials - Purchased and shipped
  • Dice Status -  Since I was unable to purchase the volume I needed from Chessex (my prototype dice supplier) I had to go find another manufacturer. In order to make sure I get the color’s matching the prototype dice as closely as possible I have to wait for them to do a color sample run and mail that to me. With their lead times and current schedule that means it will be 45-60 days before I have the dice. This is all expected, and is why I have given myself as much time as possible so that I can get the dice correct. 
  • Keyrings - Arriving Saturday

Geek and Sundry Partnership

It has been a joy to be featured and to work with Geek and Sundry this last two weeks. They have really helped to get the word out there about Dice Bottles and I’m excited to keep working with them in the future for other kits that I make.

In case you missed it, here are their shoutouts:

Current Surveys

Most have finished their surveys, and there’s still time before the deadline of next week.

Also, it seems there’s a very clear favorite when it comes to finishes. I personally thought it would be a closer split, but the people have spoken and here are the current numbers from kickstarter backers:

  • Finalize art
  • Stain and clear coat boxes 
  • Laser engrave boxes
  • More, always more :)

REGAIN HP IN STYLE WITH DICE BOTTLES’ D&D 5E HEALING POTION KIT

Some of you may remember, if you read through all the updates or looked in the comments, that I sent off my prototypes to Geek and Sundry. Well, they've now posted an article and they've told me they love it. I'm am ecstatic and so happy to be working with them. I hope to continue to be a sponsor for their wonderful entertainment that has changed my life. 

Well, enough of my babbling, go visit their site and see what they wrote - https://geekandsundry.com/regain-hp-in-style-with-dice-bottles-dd-5e-healing-potion-kit/ . Give the article a share and spread it around!

Finish and Rolling Surfaces Comparison

Many of you have expressed a desire to see the different finishes and rolling surfaces together. Here's some quick shots I did to help you decide better. 

Box finishes, from left to right, Sedona Red, Red Mahogany, and Colonial Maple. Rolling surfaces from left to right - Cork, Brown suede, and tan suede

Wait, what about Forest Green?!?!

Unfortunately I don't have a reference sample for forest green here, but given the numbers from the surveys already placed I made an educated guess of how much leather to buy and ordered it already. I'm hoping to get it in before the survey deadline and will post an update with pictures of how it looks in each of the finishes when it gets here.

Forest green! It was clearly the favorite and I'm excited to make it available! Thanks again for all the wonderful support and reaching that stretch goal. Make sure to fill out the surveys quickly so I can know how much I need to buy of each leather color. 

Orders have been placed!

I got the funds early this week and I've been busy placing orders for the boxes and vials. The dice order is almost placed, just ironing out some last refinements and then I'll be moving forward with that. The artist, Chris Berry, has been making huge strides on the art for top of the box and I expect to have a draft soon to show you all. 

I also have a contractor that is going to be fixing up my garage this thursday so I can properly ventilate the smoke out of my garage and run the laser overtime making the boxes for you. 

My next production process will be staining and sealing all the boxes once they get here, which once again depends on the survey results so I know what everybody is wanting, so make sure to response as quickly as possible!

Thanks for the support!
