sparkle sand art

Create a fun and sparkly design using Sparkle Sand and glue!
Step 1

Lightly draw your design on a canvas board using a pencil.
TIP: Use a variety of shapes in assorted sizes (such as jar lids, plates, etc.) to trace to make your pattern. Try to avoid very small areas as they will be a bit harder to glue and add sand.

Step 2

Pour some glue into a small bowl. Add a small bit of water to thin the consistency of the glue and mix well. This will make it easier to brush onto the canvas.

Step 3

Using a paintbrush, paint the glue in one area of the design, then sprinkle on the sand. Shake off excess sand onto wax paper (or a paper towel), then return it to the bottle. Continue this until the design is all filled in with colourful sand. Work one colour at a time and let it dry before adding another colour to prevent mixing colours.
TIP: Clean your brush when you are done (or if taking a break to let sections dry) so the glue doesn't harden your paintbrush.
