How much Sand will I need?
How much sand you need for your Sand Art project depends on many things. #1 - What kind of bottle are you filling? #2 How many do you want to fill up. Example: Our Baseball Bottle is an 8 oz. bottle. This is 8 fluid oz, so to figure the sand amount, the best way is to double it. Sand settles and packs, so the baseball would take 16 oz. of sand. (1 lb) this allows for a little spillage. For 20 baseball bottles you would need 20 lbs.
The true formula is 1 oz. liquid = 1.8 oz. of sand (doubling gives a little for spillage)
