Hello Community!
Sice you are the most creative people I know I think you'll be able to help me:
I used to collect dice and I have a nice stack of them. I'd like to turn them into a piece of art without destroying them but I don't know what would look nice on my wall.
Any ideas?

Clean out a long fluorescent bulb and put them in the glass tube. Run a strand of mini LEDs through it to light them up.

I like this one really much! what do you think, is it hard to remove the "cloudyness" of the bulb and is it hard to obtain a worn out one?

I've cleaned out one of these bulbs before and the white frost is some kind of powder coating that washes right out. Maybe check a thrift store for an old under counter mount light. It's likely to still have the bulb in it.

Instead of a shelf, could you make a very shallow shadowbox? It'd be like a picture frame but with 1/2" of space between the glass and the back.

yeah that was my idea, too but I had to realize my dice are soo fdirrecent in size & shape it'd probably end up looking bad. But maybe should I do this with a portion of them? Will think about it!

That makes sense... Another idea: if you went more 3d, maybe a glass clouche would look cool:

You could almost build a sconce-like shelf for it if you wanted to keep it on a wall.

I don't know how many you have, but if you zoom out quite a lot you can do something with the greyscale they generate (one eye is pretty white, 6 eyes is pretty grey). Some kind of mosaic (there are some online tools to help you design it).

Fix a batten to your wall as a narrow shelf, then stack the dice on that, in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Use small pieces of Blu Tack* to affix dice directly to the wall.

Double-sided tape should hold them together in an invisible, reversible manner as well.

I used to have blu-tackked dice on my wall but they stained it pretty badly plus half of them fell down pretty often, so blu-tack is not the perfect solution.

Are you sure dobule-sided tape would hold them without a damage?

I can't be 100% certain, as it depends on the quality of the tape and the exact nature of your dice, but I would do it with my dice.
