General information:

You need a bowl with the largest possible diameter for each color, as well as a spoon

The sand elf recommends working "stationary" with larger groups (separate work table(s) and sand table(s).

Place the vessels at a distance from each other so that they cannot tip over.

Arrange the colors next to each other as closely as possible.

This is how they should stay.

Creative suggestions:

In additional bowls , mix small amounts of coarse sand (except white and skin) together.

Pay attention to dark / light contrast (3-4 colors).

You can also mix some (COUGH) glitter under the sand

When processing the individual surfaces, you can achieve beautiful effects if you:

- Scatters the sand with your fingers and thus applies several colors one after the other and lets them run into each other (salt scattering technique)

- the protective film of the background does not tear off as a whole, but in parts - piece by piece - and sanded in different colors.

- carefully “paint” details with a spoon and a little sand.

- Carefully scrape off lines/patterns from a larger area that is already covered with coarse sand with the "Pikser" and fill them with sand of a different color (press on!).


Never leave children unsupervised with this product!

Small parts that can be swallowed / danger of suffocation!

The colored sand does not contain any dangerous substances

Use the pike at your own risk!

Instructions for use are included with every Starter Set and Maxi Set order.

The sand elf recommends protecting the finished sand paintings with picture frames .
