This exercise is really all about linking and balancing but then, when we are supposed to be making mobiles, what else would it be about? Each joint is two little interlinked jump rings and each shape was balanced on the head of a needle to find it's fulcrum point before attaching. It's very wind sensitive, which is a good thing. Another tiny step forward.

The missing link
Here are the most successful of yesterday's wrapping and molding experiments. Some plastic tubing and a polystyrene pear tray. Does PVA stick fabric to polystyrene? See the black inside the shapes? What do you think? A separating layer of cling film is called for when molding.
