I was wondering if you might be able to make a video showing how to make the water bomb tessellation. its really cool reply Submitted by Sara on 30 September 2009 - 9:22am Permalink Done! I uploaded the video last week. Enjoy! -- Sara reply Submitted by codey (not verified) on 28 August 2009 - 1:31am Permalink thank you so much for all the thank you so much for all the videos you have downloaded reply Submitted by niv16 (not verified) on 26 September 2009 - 10:41am Permalink will you Will you be able to make instructional videos on most of the tesselations? I would like to have an instructional video on the stacked triangles (: I like the exploded cheese :) reply Submitted by Sara on 30 September 2009 - 9:21am Permalink More tessellation videos I will look into making more videos. Note that the stacked triangles is one of the harder projects, which does of course not mean I'll exclude it from my considerations for my next video. The next model I'll show from this book is probably the "Star Puff" by Ralf Konrad. It's a simple project, but really beautiful. -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 30 September 2009 - 2:45am Permalink Hydrangea I was just looking at the video again and was just wondering what type of paper did you use for the Hydrangea.... Did you use origami paper or double-tissue paper? reply Submitted by Sara on 30 September 2009 - 9:15am Permalink Double tissue The red hydrangea was folded from double-tissue. Worked like a charm. The model was folded from a 17cm square, and I did 7 levels on it. I think I might have been able to do another level, actually. -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 30 September 2009 - 10:16pm Permalink AWESOME! AWESOME! Never thought it would work... Thanks! I will try it! Yesterday, I finally finished all of your origami tesselation that you have taught! Thank you very much! reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 18 December 2009 - 3:45pm Permalink nice colors i like ur chose of colors reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 29 December 2009 - 7:17pm Permalink bird base tesselations is there a bird base tesselation in that book cause i looked it up on books.google and saw there is bird base by the way the hydangea looks like a poinsetta reply Submitted by Sara on 29 December 2009 - 10:34pm Permalink Not sure I can't remember a bird-base tessellation, but don't have access to the book right now (travelling over the holidays). If a preview of the book shows a bird-base tessellation, though, I guess there's one in there. ;) -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 21 September 2010 - 1:15am Permalink bird base! at the convention some guy let me look through the book i found it that was easy to make!!! kami works well and a paper that seems like thin cardstock. reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 15 February 2010 - 11:29pm Permalink I DONT UNDERSTAND... UMM.. IN MY BOOK, I DONT HAVE THE MODEL "RHOMBIC FLOWERS", BUT THE MODEL RHOMBIC WEAVE... reply Submitted by Sara on 16 February 2010 - 7:57am Permalink Rhombic Flowers CP I folded the rhombic flowers from a crease pattern available on Eric's website. See http://www.origamite... -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 16 May 2010 - 11:17pm Permalink @ "bird base tesselations" Yes there is one called Bird Base (Christine Betten) but the only ones I've folded yet are the Five-and-Four (easy, even for a beginner), Spread Hexagons (hard to get the hang of, but then pretty easy), Star Puff, and Waterbomb. reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 16 May 2010 - 11:26pm Permalink chateau-chinon Did I see a partial chateau-chinon in the middle of the book? If not, what was it? reply Submitted by Origami Guy (not verified) on 21 September 2010 - 1:11am Permalink Double tissue? i read you made the hydrangea from double tissue and i liked the way it looked so i tried either i used the wrong type of tissue or you did something different to it... now i know how to make it dont get me wrong... reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 18 December 2010 - 2:56am Permalink Transparent paper Do you think that the transparent paper is good for origami because im thinking about buying some reply Submitted by Sara on 18 December 2010 - 7:57am Permalink Translucent paper Well, that depends on two things: 1. The model you want to fold I do like folding with translucent paper for tessellations. I haven't used it much for any other projects, though. 2. The type of translucent paper The thing you have to be most careful about with translucent paper is that it doesn't break after you've folded it back and forth just a couple of times. I guess it's a bit of a trial and error, so before you buy a large supply of paper (this holds for all kinds of paper), do buy a test sheet and give it a try first. Generally, if the translucent paper is quite stiff and thick, it'll probably be less suitable for origami. reply Submitted by noah (not verified) on 20 March 2011 - 11:40pm Permalink clover folding could you make a crease pattern for 4 stages up to 11 stages? reply Submitted by Sara on 21 March 2011 - 5:42am Permalink Not sure... I'm not sure I see the sense in that. The crease pattern is just like for 3 stages, really. But I do have vague plans to make a video showing how to fold more stages. I think that would help more. -- Sara reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 9 May 2011 - 6:26pm Permalink hang of it it took me a month to get the hang of the instructions reply Submitted by Elias (not verified) on 29 November 2012 - 4:56pm Permalink Tesselations Hey Sara I was wondering if you could try to get permission for more origami tessellations i have already made all the tessellations on your origami channel :D reply Add new comment Your name E-mail The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
