How to Make a Mobile - Getting Rid of Puckers


In today's 1-minute mobile tip, you'll discover the not-so-secret secret of eliminating the puckers on your metal blades. 

And, yes, I said "puckers"! 

Puckers, or ripples in the metal, can happen when you're cutting out your blade shapes, as well as when you're attaching your arms in a Calder-style mobile. 

They aren't always super obvious when working with bare metal, but when you add a layer of paint, they stick out like a sore thumb

Getting rid of puckers is super simple and requires a cheap tool you can find at any hardware store.
