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.)
