About

Nothing brings people together like gathering around a table to play a game. Whether you head to a friend or family member's house, your local game shop, or a larger convention, getting all of your tabletop gaming gear to your game is always a challenge. From dice to cards, from character sheets to gaming manuals, from minis to pens and pencils, there are so many items one might need to head off on their next adventure. Gaming accessory storage is incredible common (think dice bags or boxes), but it can be challenging to find gaming storage that can hold everything you might need for your gaming experience. Here at Sunshadeau Arts, we have been working for the past 9 months to develop durable, bespoke gaming storage to carry and store all your gaming essentials, not just your dice. Allow us to share with you our newest line of gaming storage, 

The Sunshadeau Arts Adventure Line

This four piece line features gaming storage cases for a variety of needs and budgets. Like every item from Sunshadeau Arts, the Adventure Line features wooden cases with bespoke finishes and one-of-a-kind acrylic and resin poured designs. There is nothing on the market quite like these unique, artisanal gaming items. When you own a Sunshadeau Arts gaming item, you also own a hand painted work of art. 

So let's meet the chests!

Signature d20 Zippered Dice Bag

If you like to travel light and just grab your dice and go, these unique zippered dice bags are for you. Keep your dice collection close at hand with one of these stylish d20 zippered dice bags featuring a print of a Sunshadeau Arts exclusive poured design.

These dice bags hold hundreds of dice, pens/pencils, cards, minis, small notebooks, and more.
 

In honor of our Adventure Line Kickstarter, we are releasing a new d20 zippered dice bag featuring our exclusive poured acrylic d20 design but in a repeating rainbow mini d20 pattern. Each specially designed half and half d20 features an image of an exclusive Sunshadeau Arts poured design. All dice bags have the option for a black or white background with our rainbow d20 design. 

Dice bag features:

  • Indigo denim lining provides a soft structure for your dice bag.
  • 100% polyester textured canvas shell withstands everyday use while looking great.
  • Long-lasting nickel zippers with vegan leather pull tab.
  • Vegan leather side pull tab gives you extra grip on your dice bag.
  • Dimensions: 10" long x 6" tall x 3.5" wide.
  • Gusseted sides keep the bag standing tall.
  • Machine or hand wash with dark colors, line dry.

These little bags can hold more than dice. Check out a video of the bags in action here.

Limited Edition Peacock Zippered Dice Bag

Due to the popularity of the Curated Collection Explorer Chest inspired by Molly, we've created this limited edition dice bag using art from the chest. It has the same great features of of our d20 zippered dice bags but with this unique peacock and purple nebula acrylic pour designs.

So what is an acrylic pour exactly?

The main factor that sets Sunshadeau Arts gaming gear apart is our use of poured acrylic designs as decoration. Every single Sunshadeau Arts piece is 100% unique and impossible to replicate. When you own a Sunshadeau Arts gaming item, you also own an original, one-of-a-kind work of art.

Acrylic pouring is when you take soft body (aka runny) acrylic paint, mix it with some additives to make it even more runny, then pour it over a surface to create an abstract design. There are many factors that determine how a finished poured acrylic piece looks and only about half of them are things the artist has any control over. This means that every single piece is completely one-of-a-kind and impossible to replicate. The acrylic is then covered with a coating of crystal clear resin to create a scratch resistant protective coating that adds depth to the finished piece. Watch the pouring process in action below.

Bespoke Customization

Every item from Sunshadeau Arts is bespoke which means you get to choose the colors, finishes, and configurations to make your gaming gear item perfect for you.

Peruse all the options, colors, add-ons, and choices available to customize your Wanderer Kit, Explorer Chest, Voyager Chest, or Quest Vault as a part of the Adventure Line Kickstarter.

Lid Finish-

First, choose the outer lid finish for your piece. The outer lid can be finished with either a signature Sunshadeau Arts acrylic and resin poured design or it can be finished with a faux leather cover and decorative brass corners.

 Color Combinations-

Next choose which Sunshadeau Arts acrylic pour color combination and which faux leather color you would like. Please note that all acrylic poured areas and all faux leather with be the same colors throughout the entire piece.

Choose from our six signature dragon pour colors and three faux leather colors.

Drawer Style (if applicable)-

For the Voyager Chest and Quest Vault, there are three options for the configuration of the drawer(s). Choose from a full acrylic pour bottom, a full felt lined bottom, or a half acrylic and half felt bottom with a dice well in the middle.

Add on a Leather Shoulder Strap (optional)-

Choose whether or not you want to add on a leather shoulder strap. For an additional $50, you can add an adjustable padded leather shoulder strap. Strap adjusts from 28" to 54" and is 1.5" wide with a 3" wide padded shoulder cushion. Strap is removable so it's there when you need it and gone when you don't.

Go Deluxe!

There is the option to upgrade your piece with a deluxe treatment. Have your entire piece finished in raw, ebony, or mahogany finishes and have the interior lined with a coordinating soft and silky suede finish. Then select the acrylic pour color combo and faux leather color to complete this truly bespoke gaming item.

Also, you can take your deluxe item to the next level by creating your own personal acrylic pour color combination. Rather than choose from the signature Sunshadeau Arts acrylic pour combinations available, choose any 3 acrylic colors to create your very own masterpiece. Choose from Onyx or Pearl base color and two other colors from the 20 colors shown below.

If we love your colors, we may create a featured combination that will be available for purchase in our shop. Should your color combination become a featured Sunshadeau Arts color, you will be credited with its creation on our website.

In addition to Raw (shown in photos above), pledges at this level can choose Mahogany or Ebony finishes.

Learn more about our collaboration here.

 Stretch Goal #3

Should we reach $9,000 we will unlock our 3rd stretch goal. So what is stretch goal 3 you ask? It's a mystery. Literally.

For our third Kickstarter stretch goal, we will be including one kickstarter exclusive Dungeoneer’s Pouch blind bag for every backer at the Travel Light pledge level and above!

Wait, what's a Dungeoneer's Pouch blind bag?

It's a blind bag of Sunshadeau Arts products, samples, or items that haven’t even hit our store yet! These are items unavailable anywhere else. Here’s an idea of what may be hidden in your pouch: dice, minis, stickers, magnets, pins, bags and more. 

This kickstarter goal will contain exclusive content that will not be available outside of this kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

This project is relatively low risk. We've worked professionally in art and design for over 10 years and have been creating table top gaming accessories for over a year. Even though this is our first Kickstarter, we have partnered with other companies on their Kickstarter campaigns and have done large scale commissions before. We are in the final stages of completing an 85 piece commission as a part of The Rook and The Raven's recent Kickstarter. So we are accustomed to these types of large scale projects.

Our processes are in place to begin production immediately if the project is funded. The plan is to have the first wave of production complete by the end of the year.

The only real challenge is time. Since each piece is individually hand painted, the more pledges we receive, the longer it will take to complete them. However, since each piece is completely one-of-a-kind, they are well worth the wait.
