What you're looking at here is the almost-complete Hexagon mobile, hanging in our shop. Don't worry: the mobile won't actually be Drab Brown. All that brown is a protective coating that will be removed upon installation. The mobile will hang below a skylight, so we chose brightly covered acrylic shapes of varying translucency, which should create a colorful, chandelier-like effect.
The mobile hangs 20 feet tall—just right to test-hang from our 20 foot ladder!
