Too too too too cool.

This is the sort of thing that drives me wild with gawkclapsmilery.

Nice links, rushmc.

On the other end of the spectrum, this one is too too too uncool.

Let's give some props to the old-school sand painters.

My company just had our summer outing and one of the actvities was a 45 minute sand sculpting competition. I tried to give the competitors as many links I could find so they could make the best sculpture possible. As I surfed around I was struck by how little basic "how to" information there was. I mean, it's easier to find out how to build a nuclear weapon or to crack DVDs than it is to learn how to build a big sandcastle.

It must be because they're all selling books and/or lessons.

There are some helpful tips at The Internet Center for Sand and these guys have a few advanced techniques. And then there's what science says.
