The “Air Bubbles Fix Kit”  instructions attached should help you resolve your sand pictures issue.  Please watch this demo video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=DCYkSOi__98  Please note that this video doesn’t show the method #2 as in the instructions attached.  A new video will be updated in the future.

At the bottom of the instructions you will find the syringe and needle sizes that you will need.  You can find these at your local pharmacy,  however not all pharmacies want to hand these out.  You can try buying them online as well.  We offer to sell the syringes and needles for a cost of $12.50 FREE SHIPPING.

Also note that sand pictures due have a limited life span due to their chemical makeup.  If your sand picture is completely or extremely empty of liquid then it may not be repairable.  We don’t guarantee the fix but in most cases it does help.

 

Add or Remove air bubbles to your Sand Picture

Method #1 (not enough air)

  1. Using a pair of pliers remove the wooden peg from the side of the picture while still       leaving the side piece attached.
  2. Be careful not to lose the black washer.
  3. After removing the picture frame from the stand, tilt the picture on its side to get the sand away from where the needle will enter.
  4. Securely attach the syringe to the needle.
  5. Insert the needle through the hole in the frame where the wooden peg once was.
  6. Carefully push the needle (trying not to bend the needle) into the hole and through the seal.
  7. Add approx.  1.0 cc of air for a large picture, 0.9 cc of air for a medium picture or 0.7 cc of air for a small picture.
  8. Remove the needle.  The needle shouldn't compromise the seal.
  9. Reattach the washer and peg.

 

Method #2 (too much air) –typically older models.

  1. Using a pair of pliers remove the wooden peg from the side of the picture while still leaving the side piece attached.
  2. Be careful not to lose the black washer.
  3. After removing the picture frame from the stand, tilt the picture on its side to get the sand away from where the needle will enter.
  4. Securely attach the syringe to the needle.
