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.
