Tamping is required to compact the grains of sand and get the square surfaces lined up to each other. This is usually done with a heavy metal tool that the worker pounds onto the surface until the next layer of sand/water is applied.


Without water, the dry sand would just slump to the ground and be impossible to work with. You may think of it as the 'glue' that holds all those wonderful creations together. Water is delivered either by hose (supplied by the Village) or by bucket.


Once the forms are complete and the sand is compacted, the sculpting can begin. Work is done from the top down with the forms being removed when they are no longer needed to stand on. When all of the carving is completed.
