I decided to make an halloween skull using sandpainting on black paper. It’s my first sandpainting on paper and one of the first in general so I’m moderately satisfied with the result. Sandpainting is usually performed on glass or other immobile surface but in the info it is stated that we must start on a “blank page”, since I feared that glass may not qualifies I decided to try on paper.

You will need decorative sand and a black sheet of paper. Decorative sand can be found in almost every color (I choosed white) in any fine arts shop. I also folded a small piece of paper to help lay the sand slowly and in a controlled fashion.

This is fantastic! I love the temporary aspect of it as well.
