Paul, 49, and Remy, 43, have been sculpting since 1991 and 1999 respectively and both compete in solo and doubles competitions together.
The pair, who now split their time between Holland and Bulgaria, only use wet sand and - in extreme circumstances - wooden frames to complete their creations.
Their work spans from a 10-tonne mermaid - they describe as 'small' - to a series of 15 giants that weight a whopping 40 tonnes.
