SandBoss sand printing

SandBossing is a printing technique that uses a wet sand-mix to print a thin layer of sand that hardens when it dries. Sand-mix is pushed through a thin template to produce a print that when dries will be durable. It can even be walked on.

Sand-mix is made by mixing common sand and a special mixture of natural binders that harden as they dry. 

No heavy equipment is needed to place prints just your feet or a bicycle and a bag on your shoulder.

With 30 minutes of practice, anyone can master this technique.
