I am a professional/master sand sculptor. We DO NOT use glue to bond the sculptures together. It is only sand and water and is simply highly compressed.
We do use glue as a weather screen, mixed at a ratio of 1 part glue and 10 parts water. We only use white glue which is already 80 water, so the final percentage is about 2% per volume.

Just like the paint on your house, it does nothing to hold it up and simply protects it from the environment. In fact, glue is heavier than water....too much glue can make the sculpture fall.

I hope they mold them or something after they are done... My favorite had to be the Disney Castle, so much detail.

Yes. Sculpting sand is usually a fine grit sand (if the local stuff is too coarse) and the binder for the fine work is typically 1/2 Elmer's white glue 1/2 water mixed into the sand judiciously.

Bloody incredible. Some of those are extremely detailed.
Shame I often get distracted by the females pics on The Chive...such a sad site

Link: 43 Bad-Ass Sand Sculptures: Competition Edition [Rate Link] - Does anyone know anything about sand sculpture competitions? Do they cut the sand with a sticking agent? Seems like it.
