MUERTOS - Day of the Dead SKULL DICE

$2,804

61

I want to create a high quality game set with original design made in US. We are using  quality and durable materials. This is not my first project. I with my team had created two projects and they were successfully funded.

1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1553061112/heroes

2.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1553061112/t-dice

After our last successfully project T-Dice i want to continue creating
collection set for tabletop games.

Dia de los Muertos -symbolizes not only the day of death.

It is also a symbol, which is the value in the life and the arts. Subject skulls were first discovered in the art of the XVI century, in accordance with the concept of vanitas (Latin vanity, vanity.) - The composite center is a human skull.

Since then, the skull - a symbol of the transience of life, a kind of memente mori (Latin. "Memento Mori")

In my project, I use a new design in an arrangement pattern of skulls and bones in small cubes to play, and I achieve the same functionality.

Muertos Skull DICE

The silver surface helps to clearly see the outline of a dice, and you receive the specular reflection from the bottom

I think this project is a little piece of art because of the small space for creativity, because the size of the bone (18x18 mm for wooden blocks, 16x16 mm -metal). I will use two kinds of material in the production of bone: wood (light and dark) and metal (white and yellow)

Specification figures on the faces of the cube. The numerical value of the eye socket of a skull. Pirates use a bandage over one eye. Symbols were pirates skull with an eye patch and bones. All that I also use in my design Muertos - Skull DICE

Originality drawing function cube also emphasizes technical laser cutting, as I highlight Cutting through the numerical value of the cube orbit, it burns more and therefore darker

 
In the history, culture and life. Just as depicted in the portrait of the man the public is not asked to look at the face of a living person, and on the skull that would remind them that everyone will sooner or later be a skull

The skull as a reminder of achieving ambitions, vanity and pleasure, symbolizing the impermanence of life, which has no value on the scale of eternity. In ancient Mexico, the symbol of the skull and bones was symbol of respect and honor. Such beliefs have been forced as much as possible to appreciate life and death, to appease the victim to death was in no hurry to take the life. That`s why  born of the cult of death, inherited by modern Mexican culture of the Aztecs.

There is the possibility of staining and varnishing cubes, in combination with blocks of natural wood gives the set a unique charm and style

Careful application of the original collection boxes in the death of the subject matter is not very fast

All items are carefully processed and manufactured, we are constantly experimenting quality laser cutting of precious and solid wood, and the pattern is very detailed.

This is the charm of these boxes, they had a long and virtually handmade artisan polishing softness of the material and the laser provides a unique smell of burning wood and coffee - at the same time

Gift chips can be a souvenir and game pieces, double meaning,

We have also included bilateral gaming chips as part of well-known and loved all the childhood game of noughts and crosses.

This means that in one box has two functions: one is the game "Tic Tac Toe" on a specially cut for stacking chips laps double milling, 2-hidden storage cubes

I locked the production of cubes of yellow metal at $ 7 K because the initial costs are high, and I calculated the cost-effectiveness, so that I can fulfill the order. I also think that other metal-bones color blue and black. new bone colored metallic locked $ 10 K. A method for manufacturing such a bone plating paint.

Risks and challenges

The project is made with inspiration and desire faster and better to bring it to victory, and implementation. Nothing complicated for risks I can't see. All items are designed and manufactured prototypes. Is ready even a metal prototype, but as the cutter diameter was 0.5 mm thin, that I gave it for alteration. The only problem I believe the quality I am trying to reach to the maximum and the second problem mail. So I created a box and plus its going to put the parcel in your mail box. The terms I chose real and completely ready to the responsibility before You. Thanks and I Expect your support, friends!
