Hi. I was interested in trying sand painting this year and haven't the
foggiest idea how to do this project. What can you tell me to make it
simple and sure and absolutely fabulous the first time out? I'd just like
to focus mostly on the "how" and pick up the "why" further down the road.
I'd like to try it myself first. One main first question....How do you
paint with thin tempera on dried, white-glued sand and it not get soggy and
"un-glued"? Do you think matboard sprayed tan would work for the base? What
colors would you go for in the tempera? Do the colors stand for certain
things? Bewildered and toodled...
