Hi Sara,

I think this Sum design has certainly become a favorite of mine from Peter Engel's new book. Congratulations on the video request from the designer himself. It would be fabulous indeed, if you did end up selecting this Sun design for your instructional video. Thank you for sharing the video and short interview of Peter Engel about his work and his new book.

hi sara! you are a very great origamist! this fold is incredible. Could you make a video teaching how to make it? and the walrus??

thank you

As the book "Origami Odyssey" is still new, I don't have any plans to demonstrate a second model from it. I already showed the Begonia Leaf, and don't want to lower books sales (but promote them!).

Hope you understand,

-- Sara

Sara, could I ask for a little favor regarding one of the steps of this model; I'm having trouble doing step 44 (sinking the nose inside-out). I hope I'm not a bother, but could you give me a tip on now to make it go inside out correctly, because whenever I do sink it to the back of the model doesn't match with what was shown in the book.
