1 First of all, draft your idea on the paper (the same size as the glass), and think how it will look like in colors.

2 According to the necessary number of colors we prepare bowl with a clean dry sand and into each put colouring powder.

3 Spray sand with hot water so that the sand is perfectly wet, but doesn´t swim.

4 Sand with the color mix thoroughly. Coloured sand leave to dry.

5 According to the draft glueing individual parts of the image by KORFIX and grit them by colored sand. Excess sand flake back into the bowl.
