Thinking of building on the water?
Rob makes a living with his outsized sand sculptures, which are commissioned for state fairs, corporations, events, parties, and promotions of every kind.
He travels all over the country to build his intricate creations, which include not only castles but also monsters, animals, cartoon characters, and corporate logos. The one thing they have in common is size Â— large.
To Rob's credit are
- A 1,100-ton agricultural scene for a county fair. It took four carvers five weeks to complete and cost $25,000.
- A 400-ton "Sandasaurus," the largest sand sculpture ever created inside a mall.
Sand packing is key to great sand sculpting. It also helps to have the right tools, and basic knowledge of engineering principles is helpful. And of course, practice makes perfect.
