|A pile of Crom counters all sculpted and made by me.|
I have Litko tokens, I have the ability to make card printed counters... But there's nothing quite like a proper 3d item to use as a counter.. And nothing beats 100% custom now does it?
I sculpted the master onto a UK penny. It was harder than I thought it might be so I went for a very beat-up looking coin.

The next stage was making a few press-molds out of Oyumaru. This is what "Instant mold" really is at a significant markup. I got mine on Amazon for cheap. It's good stuff.
After that it was just a matter of filling up the molds with ProCreate and waiting until they were cured enough to pop out and do another set of 3. It took all day to make 12, but not bad considering.
Painting was a snap. Black undercoat, metallic drybrush, wash of my deep brown Kleer/ink mix. Done. Hopefully the Kleer (Future Wax) will make a good solid coating so they don't get too chipped when mixed up in a bag.
What am I using them for? Initiative counters. Making my Initiative card deck kinda redundant. Glad I didn't make them too colorful.
