Sand painting is a fun experience for all ages. Kids will enjoy just playing in with glue and sand while adults would enjoy making fancy designs. Just follow the steps and have Fun!
Colored Sand ( in the colors according to your design)
A sheet of cardboard or canvas board
Pencil/Chalk/ pen to draw your design
And a creative mind !
- Draw the design on a sheet of cardboard or canvas board. using a pencil/chalk/pen. You could also trace the design onto the cardboard or canvas board.
- Spread a thin layer of glue on areas where you want the sand to stick and cover the area in sand. Do one color at a time.
- Shake of the excess sand and repeat with next color.
- Experiment with different designs, backgrounds and colors.To preserve the art place it under glass. Sand paintings make unique gifts.
Note: Once I finished my painting I allowed it to dry for some time and then used a frame which has glass above it to preserve it. It now hangs among many of my other works of art.
