Making a custom dice box. Part IV
Paige designed a dragon head that we both liked on her computer. She saved it and we transferred the image to the main computer. We then printed the image to a size small to put on the metal plate.
Estimating the center of the metal plate, I firmly taped the paper around the plate.
With a wood block underneath, I slowly punch down along the printed outline of the dragon head. I tried to make each punch as close as possible.
The metal plate is now ready to drill holes in and stain.
I have painted the inside of the box with black spray paint.
I also purchased clear paint to seal the exterior upon completion. This was about $3.50 a can.
Lastly tonight, I glued the corner plates on with gorilla glue.
