Use the ancient principles of hour glasses and the power of gravity to create an ever-changing visual spectacle. And when the sun goes down you'll still be able to enjoy your intriguing piece of Sand Art because it glows in the dark too! You have the choice of three glittery sand-colours: green, blue and red.

Sand Art including black metal stand and petite frame measuring 12.7 x 17cm.
The pretty sand suspended in liquid within the black frame has been chemically treated so it stays dry and glows-in-the-dark. Even in its permanent liquid home, the special hydrophobic sand holds it shape and always stays dry because of its water-repelling coating. Simply, turn the frame upside down and watch as the coloured sand gradually flows down through the 3 levels, stopping where it may and forming fresh and unique patterns. A lovely marriage of art and science.
