I made 'kinetic' sand and it turned out great. Sift 10 cups of play sand ($3.50 for a 50 lb bag at Home Depot). Add 5 cups (about a 1 lb box) of corn starch of a store brand which is under $2.00. Mix well, then add 1 cup of water, or a little more until you get the right consistency to make it stick together without being wet. Keep in a sealed box. If it dries out, simply add water. If you add a enough to make it like mortar, you can make a sand bundt cake that can even be carefully sliced!
Step 1: You will need some bleach, a pencil with eraser, a pencil sharpener, toothpicks, and some fabric or linens. We happened to have some great navy napkins from our last shoot handy but any fabric or dark colored linen will do.Step 2: Add the bleach to a small jar.Step 3: Use the pencil sharpener to make the tip of the pencil eraser smaller. Step 4: Dip the eraser into the bleach.Step 5
