new star tessellation, with chiyogami paper
Originally uploaded by Origomi.
I came up with a new star tessellation using some more of the funky 30 degree folds. I’m trying to slowly start working some of the new techniques into the things I come up with, because there’s such a large possibility of folds that I get a little overwhelmed.
I’ve been trying to work on a pentagon-based fold, but that’s coming pretty slowly- the precreasing is a PAIN IN THE BUTT. seriously. and this coming from someone who happily folds 500+ precreased lines at a shot.
regardless, here’s another one that has a “pretty” outcome on lower iteration levels. this fold comes out after only 4 iterations deep, which is nice as it’s quite a few less folds than 5 or 6 (6 levels is like 2 straight days of prefolding!)
I’m working on starting to diagram, I figured something is better than nothing and if I can get the ideas down maybe someone else with better illustrator skills than I will help me clean it up. (we’ll see on that one!)
