TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. – Sand sculptors from around the world have flocked to Treasure Island for the 2022 Sanding Ovations Master’s Cup which will kick off on Nov. 17 on Treasure Island Beach.
Today, the sculptors were hard at work doing a pound-up.
This involves creating a block of hard, moist, compact sand. Depending on the scale of the sculpture, timber formwork and compaction devices may be used.
Once the pound-up is finished the sculptor begins at the top of the compacted sand. The process mainly involves carving and removing excess sand to reveal the sculpture. The final stage involves detailing, adding textures or fine features.
Presented by Visit St. Pete Clearwater and the City of Treasure Island, this year’s Sanding Ovations theme will be “Once Upon a Time” and will feature exquisite sand sculptures that will transform you into a land of storybook fantasies.
