Yesterday night I first tried the model on a triangle grid with 16 pleat divisions to get a feel for how to do the model. I then moved to transparent paper, and had this stupid idea of doing a triangle grid 64 pleat divisions instead. Hours later... this is the result. This is what robs my sleep!
Paper used in this video: 15cm square (6 inch)
Recommended paper size: 20cm square (8 inch)
This is a more detailled version of the previous video I made. I hope it clarifies any steps people might have had problems with in the first version.
Today I decided to try making tissue foil. Some spray glue, foil, and red and green tissue later I finished my first attempt. Not perfect, but good enough to check what it was like to fold a model out of it. So I searched for a simple duo-colour flower, and this is the result.
Paper: 27cm square of tissue foil
Finished model: 13.5cm x 13.5cm
flower: 8.5cm diameter
leaves: 6.5cm length, 4.5cm width
