Nnaell...Were you the one who mentioned the "Everlasting Sand" recipe? I
tried it and it was a bust for me. I wound up with thin mud sand standing in
a bucket with 3/4 of an inch of water on top. What went wrong? It wasn't
very hard either when I got some to finally dry out? I printed out your
recipe and followed it exactly.

> Everlasting Sandcastle
> 4 c sand
> 2 c cornstarch
> 4 teaspoons cream of tartar
> 3 c hot water

Looking forward to your reply. Toodles......Bunk
