2. Class Project: Create Your Own Rain Cloud Mobile

You will be creating your own Rain Cloud mobile, progressing through the following steps

  1. Choose the object to 'rain' from your cloud. My mobile was inspired by the phrase "raining cats and dogs" but you could chose raindrops, men (like the song!), colourful balls, plastic play money... 
  2. Gather your materials and equipment
  3. Create your cloud base
  4. Cover your cloud base in polyester stuffing
  5. Use a drill to prepare your chosen objects for hanging.
  6. Paint your objects
  7. Assemble your mobile

This project will take a few hours (not including drying time)

Share your process and final outcome by uploading your project. You could upload 
the following:

  • Photographs of your work in progress
  • Photograph of your completed Rain Cloud mobile in situ
