Hi,

a few of my dice have no colour in their cavities which makes it hard to read. Do you have any experience with filling these cavities with colours?

I remember the old D&D German first eidtion sporting wax crayons to fill the cavities on the supplied dice. Would that be an idea?

The only thing I have ever done was with one of my Seasons dice. It was missing some of the white around the edge so I went to Micheal's and bought a white paint pen and filled in the missing area. Worked PERFECT! I highly recommend that, though those dice are far large, so your mileage may very.

I simply fill with acrylic paint using a brush, then I quickly wipe off excess paint by sliding the die surface across a piece of soft paper or stiff cloth on the table.

I painted mine with white acrylic as others have said and it worked fine.

Back in the old days, assuming that the cavities had been indented deep enough, you could rub a crayon over that area of the dice, then rub off the excess and you had a filled in cavity. I am not too sure that these dice are cut deep enough for that, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try it.

Thanks for all the pieces of advice, I guess I will start with a crayon and then use acrylic colours.

I'm a professional artist and I would go with Mik's advice it has always worked for me.
