To make a form use heavy-duty scissors or any saw to cut the bottom off of your bucket. When finished, you should have a “tube” to build a sand tower.
Some sand sculptors like to line their forms with a lubricant to prevent 'sticking'. If you do use this, make sure it is biodegradable. You can also skip this and tap hard against your forms to prevent sticking. Practice makes perfect. *OPTIONAL
For hauling water. You will need a lot of water when making a sandcastle.
You'll need a shovel to fill your forms with sand or to create a large sand outline for your sculpture. You can use a small size or purchase a snow shovel for larger sculpting. NO HOLES ON THE BEACH
Found in kitchen supplies, these measuring spoons are great for creating windows in castles. You can use various shapes or sizes.
The serving spatula helps to do various things like removing sand and also making stairs for castles.
These are the perfect tools for creating lines and shape for details.
At SCU we love using biodegradable straws to help with the details. These straws can be used to blow the sand out of the lines and shapes you create.
Found in painting supplies, you'll need a paint brush to brush the sand away. This will help with the details. You can use any type of paint brush. Big or small.
Currently, we don't have sets for purchase, but stay tuned. We are working hard to get something that will be perfect for the beginner sand sculptor.
