3D Sand Painting Review (Faber-Castell)

3D Sand Painting
What It Is

What happens when you mix sand and paint together? A totally textured and creative arts and craft kit! The 3D Sand Painting kit, part of Faber-Castell's Do Art line, gives kids the tools they need to make five sand paintings. The sand is already mixed into the paint, so all kids have to do is squeeze it from the bottle onto the blank design boards. Kids also get to use the included watercolor paints to add more color to their artwork, as well as mixing containers to mix new sand/paint combinations. Plus, there are different art tools for creating lines and patterns. And when their creations are complete, kids can use the hang tabs to display their artwork.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun, tactile art project that gives kids a different way to work with paint and, of course, sand. It's cool to see the paintings done in 3-D, and two of the design boards have watercolor resist designs already printed on them to make it a little easier for kids to paint within the lines and get the creativity jumpstarted.

Who It’s For

The 3D Sand Painting kit is for creative kids ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The kit comes with five sand paint colors, two colors of dry sand, three blank art boards, two resist design boards, a watercolor paint palette, a plastic palette knife, a texture tool, a paintbrush, two plastic mixing containers, clear plastic hang tabs, and instructions.

You'll want to cover your work surface before you begin. It's also advised that you wear old clothes. The paints may stain fabrics and furniture.
