Have a sense of humor and don’t take yourself too seriously, even when you become more experienced. The more critical the piece, the more you’ll stress and risk a goof-up. And always have a spare piece or two, just in case.
Wes Barton, IKONICS Imaging:
The best advice is practice makes perfect. Take your time and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Purchase some low-cost substrates and test, test, test.
Liz Haas, Rayzist:
One tip that so many of us don’t do is to have fun with it! Sandcarving can be as unique as you make it – there are no rules. Take some time to do a fun project or do an award that is completely outside the box of what your company normally offers. Who knows, it may be your niche that carries you to the next level.
