In this video, YouTuber Rybonator takes you through the processes of creating your own handmade resin dice from scratch. The video details every step of the process, explains all the tools, and details why he does each step of the process, in a way that anyone can understand. In this video, Rybonator will go over how to create Cap or Squish style molds that mimic the molding style of older toys. He'll explain the benefits of this method, and show a completed dice set of 7 tabletop RPG dice at the end of his process. While this video focuses on dice making, this process can be expanded to small parts/game pieces and accessories for any tabletop game developer to take advantage of.
