UPDATE 06/08/13: after six years, we finally have a decent photo and a print!
Rainbow-coloured stellated truncated icosahedron. So many sheets of paper...
I worked out exactly how many squares of each colour I needed, and how it'd tone down in rainbow pattern...etc.
Took ages putting it together as I had a specific order in mind- worth it, though!
+ 270 modules
Wow! This is awesome! I'm going to do the tutorial- can I contact you if I have any questions?
wow! incredible! How long did it take?
Thank you! I didn't do it all in one go but I think it took me about 3 hours to fold all the modules, and about an hour to put it all together correctly?
I want to hold it and play with it! lol
they look like triangular roses ! and so many spikes...must...touch !!
Whoa, this is something else. I can see why it got a DD when you first sumbitted it. 270 modules - that's impresssive in itself! Fantastic transition of the colours, too.
Thank you so much! I don't think I'd ever spent SO long on any origami model before, so this was a breakthrough. Still warms me up looking at it ^_______^
oh my.. it's beautiful O////O
what's inside it? It'll be an awesome hanging lamp is that even a word? ._. if you able to put a lamp inside it. Pretty colors
check the tutorial.. and .. it's waaay to complicated to follow for me ;---; maybe i need to start warming up with beginner's origami..like a plane ?
Thank youuu! There's just air inside...for now. Never thought of putting a lamp inside- I'd have to take it apart a bit and then stick the light inside...
Nah nah nah, the modules are SUPER easy peasy. Try making six of them and putting them together to make a cube, you'll feel proud of yourself!
is that even possible to take apart of them? it's too beautiful to touch QAQ
i don't know how you can say it's super easy, but it worth a shot maybe i'll look up for some colorful paper and try make some modules first :yey:
Wow, it's so intricate. Looks great!
Thank you so much! This was my first ever DD, and it's always gonna have a special place in my heart. <333
This is great. It must have taken a long time.
Would you be kind enough to show the pattern of the coloring? I have too many one-colored origami pieces in my room, haha.
Hehe rainbow is much more fun...the top layer is red/pink, gradating to orange, yellow, green, a teeny bit of blue, then purple.
haha thanks. I may try making it in white first so I can calculate how much of the colors I need. Who knows.
You're welcome! Though, you might get fed up of folding those modules by the time you've made one ball...
I've got all the pieces folded but it sadly doesn't go into a ball
Oh no! Do you think you've arranged it properly? The hexagons and pentagons formed by the modules need to be in the proper places...
it's funny I just saw this on my updates for you and I was recently thinking about making one myself. haha
IT'S A SIGN.
You should have a bash at it, yes! Have you tried these sorts of modules before?
that looks really good!!!
what a load of work
