The adhesive is already on the pre-cut board which means No Gluing and No Mess. Just peel the picture in stages, sprinkle on coloured sand and youíre done. A perfect picture!
With the card in your tray, use the lifter to slowly peel off the first area you want to work with. Be careful not to lift surrounding areas.
Choose a colour and pour it over the exposed area. Turn the card over and tap to remove excess sand. Repeat to make the area darker.
Peel off the next area and pour another colour onto the exposed adhesive. Repeat the process until the entire card is filled with different colours.

Make a proper Greeting Card out of your Sand Art picture. Just stick your picture halfway onto the joining strip, add the backing card and write a message.
Lift the yellow paper from a corner and fold it halfway. Do not remove completely.
Line up your finished card to the fold line and stick together.
Remove the rest of the yellow paper and line up your Backing card. Stick together and fold.
Protect your masterpiece by using the clear plastic bag included with your card.
Cut your plastic bag open so you have a single side that's bigger than your card.
Colour your card first, but not the border. Remove the border.
Place your plastic sheet over the card and stick down onto the border.
Turn your card over and trim the edges.
The plastic lifter works best when used as follows:
What type of sand do we use?
We use high quality sand with a fine and consistent grain that does not contain any organic materials. It gets washed and coloured with water based colours using our proprietary methods and quality control, to ensure a non-toxic and safe product.
How safe are the products?
We are committed to quality assurance and exceptional service at Idea Factory. Our products get tested at prominent international laboratories and conform to international safety standards.
How many cards can one make from the sand available in a Gift Pack or Home Kit?
You only use about 5gm of sand per postcard and can easily make 10 - 12 postcards with the sand in the packs, and more than 300 postcards with the sand in the Home Kit.
For what age group is Sandart?
We recommend Sandart for ages 4 and older. Younger kids might need help with lifting the paper, but they'll enjoy peeling it and colouring the card.
Can I get the sand in loose quantities?
Yes, we supply sand in 50gm, 100gm, 500gm and 1kg packs.
Are there other colours available, or only the ones in the Home Kits & Gift Packs?
We have 21 colours available - black, white, red, dark green, light green, dark blue, light blue, purple, pink, peach, orange, yellow, terra cotta, red brown, yellow brown, beige, olive green, turquoise, grey, mustard, and dark brown.
