Origami Fall Challenge - 21
Now, did you use a crease pattern for this or did you create this yourself? And is this modular or one sheet of paper? this is pretty spectacular!!
It's one sheet of paper with simple valley and mountain folds.
I watched a video on youtube on how to create parametric origami and adapted what I saw.
Simply fold creases 1 cm distance from each other by first dividing a big square into 4 smaller ones on the same paper. Then fold creases for each one the small squares like in the photo (one valley fold and one mountain fold.
Try it yourself and send me a pic if you manage to do it
It's a regular piece of A4 printer paper you don't need a soft paper. A crispy paper is better for keeping the folds in place.
If you need help leave me a message and I will be glad to help you.
Ahh, OK! Really? It looks so much thinner than I thought.
All my origami are made from regular paper (print colored or white paper). Some are made from foil and some from gift wrapping paper. I never used or use origami special paper.
Ha! You sound like me! I've made more paper outta any and everything that can fold, it's not even funny! but I have used my share of origami papers! I got my first kit from Border's back in the day. It was one of those $10 gift sets the use to sell at the front of the store year round. That was probably back in late 90's early 2000's.
I have learned to adapt
Take anything and fold everything!
Depending on the origami I sometimes need BIG paper (like 60x60 or 80x80 cm squares; mostly for dragons) and the good quality paper for all those folds I found to be wrapping paper . I also like to fold origami from old book pages (the resulting origami looks so cool)
wow how did you made this?
oh .... this was a bit tricky it's a tessellation and one of the easy ones. you just have to bend the paper in parallel lines then make sequential valley / mountain folds
you have some serious patience ^-^
