Iron Man and sand art, together at last!

Iron Man Sand Art

Come on, tell the truth. Would you have passed this up? Of course you wouldn't! It's all kinds of awesome! I'd really like to know who's idea it was to combine the latest incarnation of Iron Man with a retro kitschy craft like sand art. I want to be their friend.

This isn't really a tutorial or even a review of the Iron Man Sand Art Fun (yes, you have to say the whole thing). It's just something I did recently that amused me greatly (it usually doesn't take much). I probably would have done a sand art tutorial, if the very awesome Jennifer of Naughty Secretary Club hadn't beat me to it.

Sand is messy. If you feel like making some sand art of your very own, Iron Man or otherwise, make sure you have a big piece of paper beneath your masterpiece. You have to pour the excess sand off, and it's a lot easier to dump it on the paper, and use that as a funnel to get it back into it's container. Or, you can just leave it there like I did.

My only complaint with the Iron Man Sand Art Fun is that there really weren't any outlines to fill in. That is what the black sand was included for, right? This was the best I could do, short of busting out the exacto knife and making my own outlines. My fingertips were quite happy that I didn't attempt that.

And there you go, one completed Iron Man Sand Art Fun! I assumed mixing the red and yellow sand would make an orangey looking sand, but no, not really. Oh well. I left his eyes and mouth white on purpose, though in retrospect, I probably should have made the mouth black.

Iron Man, Iron Man, does whatever an Iron Man does...

Ooh, pretty! I'll probably pick up some colored sand to play with later on, 'cause this was actually kinda fun!

  2. Your sand art looks awesome! I did a little sand crafting inside with my kids yesterday and was reminded of just how messy sand art really is.
