About Our Tools
The custom tools featured in our Basic & Deluxe sets were developed by the Sons of the Beach Sandcastle Wizards and designed by The Amazin’ Walter McDonald. They have evolved over the years and are currently being assembled by hand right here on South Padre Island, TX. The Thermo-loc handles can be re-shaped to fit your hand: just throw them in a pot of boiling water until they are soft enough to reshape. (To keep them from melting together, refrain from stashing them in a clear cellophane bag in direct sunlight.) Scroll down to purchase tools individually.
1. Firmly pack moist sand into a mound somewhat larger than the size sandshaper you are planning to use
2. Start in the center of your mound, using a circular motion. Don’t force it, let the tool do the work
Bonus Tip: As you work your way around the sphere, keep starting from your original, centered «start point.»

• 2 pastry knives (square for castles & tapered for organic shapes)
• corded blow tube — for blowing sand out of cracks and crevices

When you start Photoshop, the Tools panel appears at the left of the screen. Some tools in the Tools panel have options that appear in the context-sensitive options bar.
You can expand some tools to show hidden tools beneath them. A small triangle at the lower right of the tool icon signals the presence of hidden tools.
You can view information about any tool by positioning the pointer over it. The name of the tool appears in a tooltip below the pointer.
Some workspaces shipped with Photoshop CC 2015 customize the toolbar. When you switch to one of such workspaces, some tools may seem missing from the toolbar. See Tools missing from the toolbar to learn how to resolve this issue.
In Photoshop CS6, some tools were available as part of Photoshop Extended. All features in the erstwhile Photoshop Extended offering are now part of Photoshop CC. Photoshop CC does not have a separate Extended offering.
If you’re looking for general information on how to use tools in Photoshop, see Using tools.
Figuring out what Photoshop tools do is now easier than ever before! When you hover the pointer over certain tools in the Tools panel, Photoshop displays a description and a short video of the tool in action.
You can choose not to view rich tooltips. To do so, deselect the Preferences > Tools > Use Rich Tooltips preference.
