What Are Sand Sculptures?
Our sculptures are NOT made in Plastic MOLDS, they are sand castings and created one at a time.
Each Sculpture is a picture drawn in the sand in relief (*Relief is a sculptural technique where the sculpted elements remain attached to a solid background of the same material. To create a sculpture in relief is to give the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane. This technique was used as long ago by Egyptian’s. There are two types they used, we use sunk relief where the figures are below the surface.)
We are creating an impression by digging into the sand. The picture is then covered by pouring a lite weight cement into the impression – freezing the sand in it’s place.
Once the sculpture is set we remove it from the sand, breaking the mold for that picture, making each sculpture a one of a kind.
Each sculpture is hand painted with acrylic paints and sealed for indoor/outdoor wall hanging.
The DeMichele Family has been creating sand sculptures since 1984.We are 3 generations of sand casters. Thank you from our family to yours! Click Here if you would like to print our process out.
