Combine sand with flour, water and white glue to make a no-cook dough that can be used to make gritty sand-like sculptures.
|1.||Measure out 2 cups flour and ¾ cup water in a basin or bowl.|
|2.||Mix and knead into a soft and somewhat sticky dough.|
|3.||Add 2 cups sand. Fold the sand into the dough - the dough will slowly take in the sand as you continue to fold and knead.|
|4.||Add about 1 tablespoon white glue. The glue will add extra cohesiveness to your dough and allow for more sand to be added.|
|5.||Measure out another cup of sand and add it bit by bit, kneading the additional sand into the dough. You don't need to put in all the sand - stop when you reach the desired consistency of the dough. In case you've added too much sand and the dough becomes dry, adjust by adding a few drops of water or white glue.|
|6.||The color of your dough will be determined by the sand's natural color. If you used light-colored sand, you may further color your sand dough by adding a bit of acrylic paint or poster paint. Continue kneading until the dough is uniformly colored.
*The paint will only color the dough and not the sand particles.
