    Can you put Elmer's glue that has been thinned with water over sand in a base to help it stay in place?

    Generally, what I do is paint a thin layer of glue on a sealed base and then sprinkle enough sand over the glue so that the top layer stays dry, after allowing the mixture to dry 24 hours or more, I knock off the loose sand. This should give a dry looking sand that is secure, I then spray several coats of Krylon matte finish over this. If you paint the glue over the existing sand it will seal effectively, but your finish will have a wet/glossy look to it. paul
     

  3. If you mix equal parts of elmers and water and then add sand to the consistency you want, you can apply it to a wooden base and will end up with a rock hard base that looks great.

    Elmers has a spray glue that works great to 'seal' the sand to the foam.
