This is called a drip sand castle. It's all about patience and slow additions. Several times I lost an entire side because I tried to add too much at a time. BUT, if you wait too long, there won't be enough water in the already dripped sand to withstand more sand drips. It's an art, really. Just like children. Teaching a child is a balancing act. You try to force too much and they simply collapse, but if there isn't enough growth, there is resistance down the road. I have decided to keep Pearl home with me one last year before she joins Divine and the other masses of children at our local elementary school. I guess I want to be the one in charge of her final shaping before she moves on to bigger and better "structures".
