10 Tips in Building Brilliant Beach Sand Sculptures for your Team to be Thrilled
- Formulate an image, sketch in the sand or plan your design.
- Gather the sand. Packing, pounding and compacting the sand. Use extra water to drain through the sand and bond the sandy quartz grains.
The squarer the sand, the better the bond as the quarts crystals are less like to slide by one another. Mixing sand with an environmentally safe binder like flour can make it stick better. Don’t cheat and use cement powder on the beach.
- Make the form-work 20-30% larger than the intended sculpture. That way you can shave off the excess. Eventually revealing your final design with minimal collapse.
- Use a spatula, your hands or any implement like kitchen tools or invest in sculpting tools.
- Now start cutting away the excess of your design from the top. Working down gradually and carefully. Compact and moisten loose areas before they crumble away.
- Position yourself and accurately refine your shaping, holes and key features.
- Brush away unnecessary sand and clean the design, contrasting the surrounds.
- A great tip is to slightly undercut and create a relief. This way providing a better 3D form to be admired.
Like a shark rising from the ocean depths. Or in this teams case a Darth Vader rising from the sands at Balmoral Beach in a Star Wars theme.
- Fill in any holes for safety so passers by admiring your work don’t trip into an abyss.
- Admire your sculpture with others and photograph and share your creation. Allow kids to ride, jump and play with your temporary masterpiece. Don’t forget to post

- Fun sculptures such as Mermaids, Unicorns, Monsters, Mythical Creatures and Cakes that you can decorate.
