Not really... The cloverfolding model starts at the top level and goes down when folding. The hydrangea model starts at the bottom level and goes up when folding. reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 29 June 2009 - 4:42am Permalink diagrams are there any diagrams i tried the video but i just cant get it please reply reply Submitted by Sara on 29 June 2009 - 6:01am Permalink Hard one I really don't know if this model has been diagrammed anywhere. I'm not aware of any source (hence it's not mentioned in the video or on these pages). Sorry. reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 1 July 2009 - 9:59pm Permalink thats ok thats ok sara i tried the video again and this time i got it! reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 4 July 2009 - 7:11pm Permalink Thanks for the video Dear Sara, Thank you very much for this video. I tried 3-stage clover folding. And when I saw your 7-stage clover folding model's photograph I was really inspired by it. It is awesome. And most important is it is made up of just 19.5 cm^2 paper. When I tried 5-stage (Actually I thought I was doing 7-stage, but I just double the number of creases, and it became 5-stage clover folding), I started with a very big paper, and still it was bit difficult to make precrease. (I don't even know weather there is something called 5-stage, since it doesn't have that nice last petal part.) But I enjoyed doing that also. (It is actually happy folding). Here is the URL of picasa web album of clover foldings which I made. http://picasaweb.goo... (This are not perfect, but this is my first attempt.) Thank you again. Best regards, Archana Morye. reply Submitted by Sara on 5 July 2009 - 7:12am Permalink Looking good Hi Archana, Good to hear you enjoyed the video. As to your "5-stage" clover folding: First of all, you did a very good job. I usually don't like patterned papers for tessellations, but this one works quite well. It makes it look like patchwork. Second, the formula for determining the grid to start with is: 6*(no of stages)-2. If you start with a 32 by 32 grid, then you are 2 grid squares short of 6 stages. But that only means that for the last stage you have 2 rows of 2 squares rather than 4 squares. That's why you have another rows of squares as the last stage, rather than the finish I showed. Having said that, you might want exactly that effect, it is by no means "wrong", it's just slightly different. So, in essence, you folded a variation of the 6-stage clover folding. :) I bought new paper, and might fold another clover folding with more stages. I don't think more than 7 states are feasible with a 19.5cm square. The grid squares were 5mm wide (40 by 40 grid), and that makes the collapsing stage quite fiddly already. -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 3 August 2009 - 4:04pm Permalink Thanks for the reply Dear Sara, Thank you very much for your replay. Somehow I didn't see your reply earlier. Thanks for the formula for determining the grid. I'll try sometime for 7-stage. About the patterned paper, I too wanted to use plain paper (at least for Hydrangea (Shuzo Fujimoto): High density patterned, http://picasaweb.goo...), but I didn't get it. I leave in a city, where even if I want usual 15 cm^2 plain origami papers, I need to give order at least 1-2 month before. Only wrapping papers are easily available. Once again thanks for video's and other things on this site. Best regards, Archana Morye. reply Submitted by Torry (not verified) on 3 June 2014 - 11:39am Permalink This is truly fantabulous. It This is truly fantabulous. It looks so complex and for a moment i thought it was different pieces joined to form this single shape. But it is astonishing to watch this made out by just folding a single sheet of paper. Great work. Kudos. reply Add new comment Your name Subject Comment * More information about text formats Text format Plain textFiltered HTML Plain textNo HTML tags allowed.Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.Lines and paragraphs break automatically.Filtered HTMLWeb page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.Allowed HTML tags: <a> <em> <strong> <cite> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <strike> <h2> <h3>Lines and paragraphs break automatically.
