...were you using the turbo to roast marshmellows? Do they all get like that, or was something wrong?

Very creative.

Im guessing the sand can be reused? Thats why you are collecting it?

and it goes EVERYWHERE if you dont collect it.

if i was doing a lot of this stuff i would have made it a little bigger and put a fan on the side which blew the sand into a second chamber for collecting. About 5 seconds of spraying and you couldnt see anything in the cabinet.

i used fine sand. many people use media blast material or even nut shells ect.
