1. Sprinkling low
Take Sandy Art sand on the sand spoon. Hold it at a height of approx. 4 cm and drop the sand. This results in a large volume of sand having landed at one spot so that the colours are brighter and more uniform. When using this technique you should bear in mind that where you have dropped sand you cannot drop another colour on top of it. Always press the sand firmly with the brush and brush it clean.
2. Sprinkling high
Take some Sandy Art sand on the special spoon, the Sandy Art® sand spoon. Hold it at a height of approx. 20 -30 cm (at the height of your nose) and hold the spoon horizontally. Sprinkle carefully, as if you are doing it with a shaking hand. The sand is scattered over the foil. Using this technique you can sprinkle various colours one on top of the other and get an attractive water-colour effect.
Various techniques and materials
1. Sandy Art® templates, Stencil Grids and/or lace
What you need:
Step 1: Remove one protective layer from the foil, stick the template on the foil and press it firmly.
Tip: Use the smooth side of the protective layer to press the template to prevent the adhesive layer from being damaged.
Step 2: Sprinkle one colour of sand over the foil. Distribute it well over the whole surface with the brush. Press it firmly with the flat side of the brush and brush it clean carefully.
Step 3: Remove the template as follows: bend the foild and press your fingers onto the back of the template. Repeat this until the template has largely come loose. Then take it from the foil carefully without bending the template. If the foil is not stuck on a card, pull the foil from the template carefully. Do not pull the template as then it may bend.
Step 4: Now sprinkle another colour of sand on the foil or color in the foil with multiple colors carefully using the Sandy Art® spoon. Do not brush of the sand until the complete foil is covered. Press it firmly and brush it clean with the Sandy Art brush.
Of course, you can also make the template with different background
2. Cutting out patterns from the foil
General procedure: Copy the pattern you have chosen onto the protective layer of the foil. Cut in the lines with the Sandy Art knife. Note: cut through the protective layer only. If you press the knife too firmly, you will cut through the foil itself and that should not happen. If you want to make a card with this technique, you can stick the foil onto the background first. If not, try it out on a small piece of foil.
3. Colouring in a contour sticker
Fill the whole sticker with sand in various colours using the handy sand spoon. Leave the sand until the whole sticker has been coloured in. It does not matter if you mess about some sand or it falls outside the lines. When you have filled all parts of the sticker, you press the sand firmly with the brush and shake the superfluous sand off the foil. Cut off all the superfluous foil and the result is a gorgeous sticker.
4. Working with double-sided adhesive pictures
Tips and hints:
- Because the pictures are only mildly adhesive, press them firmly onto the card before sprinkling brilliant sand. Press the pictures using the spoon or tweezers to prevent the layer of glue being diminished because the glue sticks to your fingers.
5. working with Sticky Stickers
Tip: Always make sure that you cover the part you are working on completely with sand before you proceed with another part and colour. Otherwise sand grains of the following colour will stick inbetween.
