I actually got the OST Yatzee game with the FOY chalice at Barnes & Nobel over the weekend. It's not bad for what it is, and with a bit of modding and a repaint it should do nicely. I want to get it ready to go for an after party to an event I'm doing for the premier so I can walk around drinking out of it. There is a hole that runs through the inside of the cup for a string to keep it tied in place in the box that needs to be filled. I think I may actually try my hand at silver leafing the metal parts to get a more realistic look.

The yahtzee chalice looks better than the real thing.

See real thing?

The yatzee chalice is actually pretty good imo. Ya need 2 though. Only glaring thing wrong is that the non-metal part of the bowl is actually translucent.

Yeah, I was looking at it last night, then looked at the tortiseshell pickguard on my strat and was wondering the possiblities of picking up another one and cutting the sections out of the cup, replacing it with ones from the pickguard (heated and reshaped) and epoxied in. I think I'm also going to dremel out the areas where the white "beads" are so there are small channels and use clear epoxy to put some tiny white glass beads in. This of course will be after filling the center hole and giving the chalice itself a coating of silver/chrome spary paint that I used on the silver pieces of my Zizzle pistol.

This will NOT be done before the premier, as this is clearly going to be a long term project...

First of all the prop is horrific. Not good, not good at all. It looks like a modified plastic accessory.





The bowl of the chalice is suppose to be made of stone. The original that I believe this is copied from or "inspired" from, is made if sardonyx a red onyx.


Onyx is a banded variety of chalcedony. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color (save some shades, such as purple or blue). Commonly, specimens of onyx contain bands of colors of white, tan, and brown.


I have spent months looking for a onyx bowl to modify for the chalice cup, but all are too shallow, or too big.

The beads on the chalice are seed pearls.

There are two chalices needed for the ritual. One has "AQUA" inscribed on it,
the other "de VIDA". One is
Spoiler:
destroyed at the FOY by the Spanish
, and the "AQUA" chalice
Spoiler:
survives
.

I think those small dots are weld beads. The chalices have the inlaid onyx sheets so they need to be held in by the metal frame. The weld beads are added to provide a slot for them to sit in and not fall out.
I could be wrong though!!!

See how they exist at all areas where two metal plates come together? Even on the "inspired" cup as well albeit much smaller.

You're probably right CJS, it does make sense.

Could be an interesting project, mates!

Anyway, I think the prop shown above is only some kind of a stunt prop. You can see that some of the other props also look less detailed and kind of "rubberish", therefore I suppose some weapons and stuff were rubber (=stunt) props. The chalice could also be made of rubber, maybe resin.
Just my 2 cts.

Yeah I agree, it's too crappy looking to be the "actual" prop... Must be a copy of the prop. *shrugs*

as a welder/steel construction worker I can say that those are little welds on the chalice.

Here are a couple pics of the cup part of the chalice Im making (It looks better in person Laughing )
I don't know what it actually looks like on the inside, because I'm going only by the chalice images that are available, it's my own interpretation. Wink

The silver cup below my sanded cup isn't what I'm using... I just put the chalice cup on it to get a sense of proportion. After I finish sanding (ugh!) it, I'll polish it and cut it down then begin the stem and the base. I'm going to go with silver leaf if it isn't too expensive. Also for all those "welds" ...I've got the perfect solution for those!
Question...WHAT color are the cabs underneath the cup?

Rock on Joni! Looking really good so far! I can't wait to see your final creation!! wave

Make sure you make two so that when you hit them together they make a really nice "DING" sound!!! Laughing

You can see the silver supports from the interior of the cup. I couldn't tell if it was a shadow of the silver visible thru the transparency of the bowl or if it's individual pieces held into place by the silver, and those weld bumps???

CaptJaq... You have the Yahtzee chalice, aye? Wot say you?

One of my chalice WIP so far...
Metal candle holder I cut apart and put back together. It still needs to be soldered.


With cup #1


Cup #2


I think I'm going to take more off the stem, it's still too tall. The cups are a bit taller than I want too.

Maybe these will be helpful to someone. Looks like these were stunt chalices since they are clunky resin. Rolling Eyes

Yay!! Thanks Maui512! Now I know what the inside looks like!

Mine so far...


Going to make that ball piece larger, cut down a little bit more off the stem and start the bracket pieces.
