Sand Animation Tips and Techniques

Have your set up your light box? Now, let's learn to create sand animation!

 Here are some tips!

1) Move sand in different directions. Moving sand in one direction, as opposed to another will change the image.

2) Use your fingertips, hand and tools. The sky's the limit when it comes to creating pictures in the sand. Different tools result in different effects!

3) Play around with different amounts of sand. Use less sand for areas that are meant to be lightly coloured, and more sand for areas that are meant to be dark coloured.
