Sharp sand is just a descriptive term for builder's sand. If you used fine sand, like beach or river sand, there wouldn't be enough space between the grains to allow for air pockets. You can purchase builder's sand or playground sand at hardware stores. Just rinse it well before using it for your cuttings.
