***CHECK OUT TRAVEL CHANNEL'S NEW SHOW "SAND MASTERS" Sundays at 7:00pm to SEE ME SCULPT IN ACTION!!***

better lighting on the castle
differnt angle

there are 5 pictures in all if you would to get a better idea of size and shape.

i had spent three weeks in blegium
two of those weeks, i spent carving a massive castle
most of the time it was me and another australian carver
however, we did have anywhere from 2 to 4 people on the pile
i worked alot on the towers, windows and roof tiles
doing much detail work
im proud to say the gate is totally mine ^_^

anyways.
Material: Just sand and water
Tools: anything from a shovel, to masonary trowel, to a brush.

Sand Castle 2 by ~Suzuko42 I didn't know you could do this with just sand. I am amazed, as you should be too! ( Suggested by EnigmaticEmpress and Featured by ohnojaylo )

I'm trully surprise by perfection this castle was carved. If you hadn't named it "sand" castle, I would be completely fooled. It's amaizing XD And I can say that it must have certainly took you hours (hopefully pleasure one) to get this work of art done. Seriously you made me have now a new view about sand castle... O.o

Good, good work :wow: I shall now try on my own to build a better sand castle new time I go to the beach.
