This is the second model I decided to make for my mini series; the spiky ball. It’s a simply modular because there are only 12 units to it and each unit is just a simple variation of the pinwheel fold.
I finally have a little bit of time to dedicate a little time to my foldings. I’ve broken into the stash of 5cmx5cm I’ve been saving since I left Argentina!
As a rule of thumb,the smaller the size of paper you use to make kusudamas or any origami for that matter, the more difficult it can be. I use tweezers because my fingers are too big!
this blog has been neglected for far to long … time to shed a little ‘light’!
After a long time I am finally able to sit back down and update this blog. I was pretty busy with family, visa application, travel and just general mental preparation that needs to be done to enter a new phase of my life. However, I did not neglect my folding too much (just the blog) so here’s one of my latest scupltures.
I found this model on Facebook. I follow Leyla Torres from http://www.origamispirit.com and she made a post about these bunnies.
These are Jackie Chan’s rabbit lamps.
You can find a video on how to make them here. they’re very easy to fold. I folded these two from 5×5 papers with a flower pattern on one side and blank on the other. I want to try to make them from larger pieces of paper and make them into an actual lamp. As you can see in the picture I stuffed these with pink cotton balls!
I started working on this one a few days ago. The isocohedron consists of only 30 individual units, all a variation of the windmill base. The colors I used were red (10), orange (10), green (5), and white (5). I used solid colored fabriano (craft) paper 15cm x 15 cm.
