SandsculptureA lot of work goes into making a good sand sculpture. Sculptors need patience and
endurance to create their masterpieces from thousands of tonnes of sand.
The most important part of making a sand sculpture is the preparation, or what
sculptors call “pound up”. Once you are happy with your pound up, find a good
spot on the beach, flip your bucket over and very carefully remove it, leaving
the sand behind on the ground. Now the fun part - carving. Carving gives the sculpture
all of its detail and character. You can use almost anything to carve
and most of the professional sculptors actually use cooking and dental utensils.
