938: Angelfish by John Montroll

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2018 in fish |

As a member of Origami USA, I get access to publications, diagrams and a community of folders world wide. It and JOAS are important communities for folders from Oz as we are so far (physically) from everywhere:

Every year, OUSA decorate a Christmas Tree at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. members are asked to contribute models to hang. Read more…

937: Diamond Bracelet

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2018 in geometry |

I hate throwing things out – having cut the biggest 2×1 rectangle possible from an A2 sheet, I was left with a lovely thin strip of scrap: I was playing with a corrugation, with the view to design a millipede, but stumbled across a molecule that I then tessellated along the length.

936: Naomiki Sato’s Hummingbirds

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2018 in bird |

Cruising around on Fakebook, as one does, I can across a photodiagram series from Naomiki Sato: Lovely little hummingbirds, folded from 15cm square patterned paper, from bird bases. I discovered he published a variation also, so thought I could give that a try. I think I like the wider tail one better, but they are […]

935: Snapology Icosahedron

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2018 in blarg |

I have seen amazing geometric models based on Heinz Strobl’s strip-based modular technique called “Snapology”, and thought it about time I gave it a try: Starting simple, I divided A4 sheets lengthwise into eighths, then gridded squares on those strips. I used grey for the core, 6×1 strips were cut for each triangular core. I […]

934: Mikiller觅晨’s Modular Dragon

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2018 in dinosaur, fantasy |

Assignment time at school is fairly boring, for the most part, for a teacher. Students have lots to do, you need to be available to help on demand but there is a fair bit of sitting around waiting to be needed: I had found a bunch of PDF’s explaining briefly how to fold parts of […]

933: David Brill’s “Robin”

Posted by wonko on August 11, 2018 in bird |

I have been a fan of David Brill’s designs ever since I read his book “Brilliant Origami”. Such a lovely touch, breathing life into paper: This Robin is delightful – I saw hand-drawn diagrams on David’s website and then professionally drawn diagrams in the latest Tanteidan Magazine and knew I needed to try it. I […]

932: Clever Girl

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2018 in dinosaur |

In a classic scene from the first Jurassic Park movie, a hunter realises he has just been surrounded by hungry, angry velociraptors, and utters the words “clever girl” before being ripped to shreds: This delightful mode is really simple to fold, and belongs to that stable of models whose proportions are perfect, detail is sufficient, […]

931: Sipho Mabona’s Fugu

Posted by wonko on July 29, 2018 in fish |

I have had this model on my “to do” list for ages – I had shied away from it because of what I perceived was a brutal precreasing sequence and impossible collapse: That said, with a little large scale and some accurate pre-forming, the laying of the corrugations was fairly straightforward – all based on […]

930: Ground Control to Major Tom …

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2018 in humanoid, paper, scifi |

…take your protein pills and put your helmet on. I have waited an age to fold this model – I was waiting on finding some large format duo paper. When visiting IKEA, I came upon delicious 70cm wide rolls of duo Kraft paper (black on natural and white on natural), and bought a bunch of […]

929: Penrose Triangle

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2018 in geometry |

I love geometry that messes with your head, and a “penrose triangle” is a faux 3d shape that is clearly impossible as a whole: Looking at any 2 adjacent vertices, it looks fine.  The twist of dimensions is what makes it difficult for our brains to comprehend.
