Scaly Dice Cups

Do you remember when I made myself a dice cup from felt some time back? I have to admit that I didn't really use it that much. The felt was too thin and that made the cup a bit unstable. So I kept using my old leather dice cup. It wasn't pretty but it worked. Then Mr. Biest gave me his old super pretty dice cup. I loved the look of it but it didn't feel right. And since I often blame my bad dice rolls on my dice cup I decided to make myself a new one. 


I bought two blank leather cups and used my soldering pen and some paint to create these patterns. I‘m not super happy with the scale pattern on the brown one. There was a little accident with the soldering pen that I had to cover up. But it’s okay for a first try. And then I made another one and this time I also painted the leather and I really love the result.

#Document Your Life - June 2019

June

The month of June went by so quickly. The weather went from cold and rainy to unbearably hot and right now I'm just trying to survive the heat. 
One weekend I was helping out my friends on a street festival. They're promoting the local metal music scene by doing corpse paint and handing out flyers and stickers. 
On the last day of that festival a friend and I also visited a workshop hold at the local game store to test some new miniature paints. I'm still a beginner but I really enjoyed the experience. 
In pottery class I was mostly busy with a sculpture. We were supposed to create out own chimera like creature. I chose the combination of a bear and and owl. We had to do a drawing first and then sculpt it in different version. Unfortunately there was an accident with the oven. One student put a sculpture in the oven that was way to thick-walled, it exploded and took most of the other pieces with it. That's why only one of my sculptures made it. I'm glad it was this one and now only the final glaze is missing. I also did some knitting. I started to knit something from the rainbow yarn I bought last month. 
Then there were some D&D sessions, I got a few new dice (I saw an infinity stones themed dice set on reddit and tried to recreate it) and it was my birthday. I wasn't really in the mood to celebrate so we just went out for dinner. 
Now I hope that the heat will not continue throughout the whole summer. I have another week of school and then I'm off for sic longs weeks. I can hardly wait ...

May

This month was a weird one. I wasn't feeling to well and therefore wasn't too motivated to do anything. Nevertheless I was busy - school, more school, D&D and a few social events. 
In pottery class I made a cup with a tentacle design that now holds all my brushes for miniature painting. I'm leaving them to dry lying flat but once they're dry I put them in there to safe space since I use the same desk for my minis and my sewing machine. Also in pottery class I did a drawing in preparation of making a small sculpture. The assignment was so create a chimera. Mine is half a bear half an owl.
One weekend I went to the zoo with my family. The weather was very rainy that day but I enjoyed it nevertheless. I filmed a few clips that I'll put in my video for this month - there will be a baby rhino jumping in puddles <3
And as you can see I added two new Funko Pops to my little collection. I'm actually in the process of rearranging my room to make space for a better display for all of them.
