Have you also been seeing all kinds of mobiles around the internet lately? I decided to make my own using porcelain feathers I made in pottery class. You can also use self hardening clay (that air dries and doesn’t require firing) in case you don’t have access to a pottery kiln. Draw the shape on paper and cut it out to use as a template, and don’t forget to make holes in the feathers before they dry. You’ll also need some sticks and string to assemble your mobile, but after that it’s all up to your imagination! Use different shapes and colours or keep it simple. I only used a few of the feathers I made and made a simple mobile with only one stick, mainly to avoid it becoming too heavy. Anyway, here are some pics of the process, enjoy!
Let me know if you have any questions, and please do show me if you have made one yourself, would love to see it!
