Jane’s hexagonal squashed-triangle-twist fold, close up, backlit
Originally uploaded by Ori-gomi.
I used Jane’s 3d star fold as the center of this, and then just fiddled with some other things around it. this piece of unryu did not have much MC on it, so the fine triangular squashes didn’t work terribly well- otherwise I probably would have made more of these nifty star collapses.
I don’t think I can stress enough how much I like the design of this solution to the “how do I bring together 6 double pleats” problem; it’s elegant, clean, and efficient.
total size of this paper is about 10cm x 20cm; I still think the unryu paper has promise for detailed folding, I just need to work out the kinks in the hardening process. Progress is being made, though, and that’s the important part.
