This guide provides practical and encouraging step-by-step instructions for making horizontally balanced mobiles. From gathering the materials and tools through the designing, fabricating, assembly, painting, and hanging stages, author Bruce Cana Fox is at your side to help you craete your own mobiles. His 19 carefully written chapters and 190 color photographs let you see and understand all the steps involved. He even shows you how to fix a mistake and pack your mobile for shipping. By following Bruce's steps and positive attitude, hours of fun and challenge will be rewarded with art you can be proud of.
