can painting dice mess up their balance? i told my bf (a seasoned dnd player, im new!!) the i re inked my dice and then added details w paint on the edges and he said it may mess them up. is that true?
I really really doubt the teeny tiny weights of paint you’re adding could unbalance your dice! The truth is, very few commercially available dice are perfectly in balance–nearly all manufacturers put their dice in a rock tumbler type set-up to remove mold flaws, and they end up ever-so-slightly off-shape. There’s also unseen air bubbles inside and different densities of plastic (in the case of the fancy swirly types) changing the balance.
As long as you’re giving your dice a good shake before you let ‘em roll, balance shouldn’t be a problem!
