I do and painting using natural, un-dyed sand collected from around the world. Most of the sand has been gathered by my friends and family (or me!)
In my jewelry making, I string beads and do some wire wrapping. I enjoy working with natural
The process of sand painting First you collect the sand. This is a picture of a young friend collecting sand at Lake Tahoe, CA.
Then you wash the sand, dry, and sieve it. In the summer, I dry the sand outdoors (watch out for cats!) and in the winter, I dry it in my at-college son's bedroom.
Once the sand is prepared, then I am able to begin sand painting. First I draw a picture on some type of board, then the sand painting begins! This is my new work area. I carved it out of our living room and now I can look out into my beautiful garden as I sand paint.
