Gabby's Background

Gabby, the creative force behind Maise Designs Dice, has been working with resin for over 15 years. Her journey with resin began in the early 2000s when she was deeply involved in the cosplay scene. As a costume designer, Gabby worked with some of the biggest names in cosplay, including Jessica Nigri. Her talent and dedication were evident in the stunning costumes she created, which were showcased at conventions worldwide.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic brought a sudden halt to the convention scene, and Gabby had to pivot to continue her creative endeavors and support her family. Her long-standing passion for tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs) and a personal love for dice led her to start making custom dice. This transition marked the birth of Maise Designs Dice, a brand dedicated to creating unique, high-quality dice for fellow TTRPG enthusiasts.

The Search for the Perfect Resin

Initially, Gabby experimented with various resin brands, but none met her high standards. The resins she used had several issues, including insufficient working time, rapid setup, and a lack of support from manufacturers. Gabby needed a resin that was versatile enough for her delicate techniques and provided a honey-thick texture for suspensions after 45 minutes.

It was during this quest for the perfect resin that a friend introduced her to Craft Resin. From her very first pour, Gabby knew she had found what she was looking for. Craft Resin offered the thin consistency she needed for intricate designs and the ideal thick texture for suspensions. The excellent customer support and the resin’s reliability cemented Gabby’s decision to stick with Craft Resin.

Creating with Craft Resin

With Craft Resin, Gabby was able to elevate her craft to new heights. The resin’s UV stability, crystal-clear finish, and ease of use allowed her to create stunning dice that captivated her audience. Gabby’s dedication to safety, always emphasizing the importance of PPE, ensured she could continue her work safely and effectively.
