Modular Origami Tutorial: Skella Beta Kusudama (Maria Sinayskaya)

Paper used in this video: 30 sheets, each measuring 3.75 cm by 7.5 cm (1 1/2 in by 3 in)
Finished model: sphere with a diameter of about 9 cm (3 1/2 in)

This video describes how to fold a fantastic origami "Skella Beta Kusudama" designed by Maria Sinayskaya. It also shows in detail how to evenly color the model using only three different shades of paper.

Maria kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you. And if you enjoy this model, there's also a tutorial on Maria's "Skella Gamma Kusudama" done by Edward Holmes.!


What a great model. Thanks.
I used a little heavier paper on my second attempt and it snapped into place so easily.

Hi Sara! I really like that paper that you are using. I believe I have seen you use it before, and liked it then too. I have restrained myself from asking you this because I know your busy, but If you get a chance, would mind PLEASE telling me the brand. Thank you so much for your time!
