1 Scenic Sand Art
Appel, Ellen Marshall, Texas, USA Activa Products 1975 0915640066 / 9780915640065 Soft cover Very Good Book 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
; Stapled wraps; 31 pages; Color and black & white illustrations/drawings; Textblock is tight with no internal markings and all pages are securely attached; Bright pictorial cover with no tears and modest shelf and edge wear; . (A good aspect of Scenic Sand Art is the ease by which beautiful designs can be created, and it's an art form which anyone can master. Though capturing scenic sand in glass is modern, sand as an art medium has a long distinguished history, for example, Indians of the American Southwest, as well as desert tribes throughout the world have used sand as creative expressions since ancient times. Yet, Scenic Sand has a contemporary appeal that fits in with today's nature motifs, and is 3-dimensional. This book offers a variety of Scenic Sand Art and Sand Painting projects, with each project graded as easy, intermediate, or advanced. Many projects combine sand art with other natural materials such as sea shells and plants, and some feature sand art is alone for its own sake. There's a special section on Indian Sandpainting as well.)
