Sand moulds are also used in creating 3 Dimensional forms from the handmade papers. A sand mould is created with cloth and sand. Desired structure is drawn on a folded piece of cloth so that when cut together it gives two pieces of similar sized clothes whose outlines can be stitched to create a pocket. Sand is filled into this pocket which gives a protruded 3 dimensional structures.
The handmade paper in its wet state is wrapped around the sand mould and kept for drying. When it dries, the sand is taken out from the mould by cutting or piercing the cloth. The paper takes the shape of the mould when it gets dried. Different shapes and structures can be attained with this method.
