Last night Dwight King scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, Jonathan Quick made 18 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings rolled to the brink of their first Stanley Cup final in 19 years with a 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.
7 Archisand sand sculptors took 2 days and turned 25 tons of sand into a 12′ tall sand sculpture of the LA Kings logo, jerseys, numbers, and even goalie, Jonathan Quick!
Fans celebrated around the final sculpture after the finishing touches went on last night at the first home game for the Kings this series.

- Unless you’re using a sandbox, sand is normally attached to a body of water. That means you need to check the high and low tides so you can build your sand sculptures above the water mark and it won’t be swept away.
- Try to use fine grain sand, as it holds water better and allows you to sculpt more detail into the packed sand.
- Prepare yourselves with a sand sculpting kit. There’s nothing wrong with using toy pails and shovels with the kids. On the other hand, if you want your kids know what it feels like to be real sand sculpture artists, as well as producing much better results, use a kit with professional sand sculpting tools like palette knives, shovels, buckets, hand-held spray bottle and masons trawls.
- Spray down your sand sculptures with a hand held spray bottle full of fresh water so it lasts longer.
- This is a sand party so it’s fun, fun, fun! Have cameras clicking and videos rolling to capture those treasured moments.
