Spilled Cup of Water, by Andrew Hudson

This model was inspired by one of our previous posts, a Cup of Water by Silas Vriend. I was sitting here, wasting away in the summer heat, thinking of nice, cool things like water, and flipping through Flickr photos, when I saw Silas' post, and an idea formed in my head of how to fold this.

Diagrams here.

Some advice-- use something that will hold a crease well, not foil; and fold from printer paper or larger, step 25 is really, really hard to do if you've never done those before. I should also say, the lines made in step 18 are 22.5ยบ

If you get stuck on the last step, try taking a look at some of Philip Chapman-Bell's work-- he's used similar twist closures before.

Head, by Davor Vinko

Head, by Davor Vinko, originally uploaded by Origami Weekly.

Hey there folks, we're back from vacation this week with diagrams for Davor Vinko's Head. It's a nice three-dimensional model, with pretty good diagrams-- and even better, it's closed all around except for the bottom! I thoroughly enjoyed folding this, and I think you all will too.

Here are the diagrams.

Lesser Scaup, by Andrew Hudson

Continuing on the theme of last post, I've got another Komatsu-inspired bird design.

Note that the tail is done slightly different in the photo than in the diagram-- I changed my mind after folding it and taking photos, but that was my last sheet of black/white kami so I can't refold it until I go to the paper store!
