Modular Origami: Distinguishing Features
The modular technique of origami is a separate subspecies of paper addition. It stands on the verge of traditional origami and paper modeling.
The main difference from other subspecies is the use of several paper figures - modules. With their help, according to the chosen scheme or according to his own idea, the master folds a three-dimensional figure.
Such a modeling technique is known for the addition of carved paper balls — they are also called sudama — that have the healing power of the Japanese.But besides them, you can find numerous origami techniques on the addition of vases, flowers, birds and animals.
The technique of modular origami is based on the design of small triangular parts - modules. To add them you will need a small rectangular sheet of paper measuring 4x6 centimeters.
- Fold the sheet in half along the long side.
- Now fold it again in half, but on the short side. Roll back.
- Fold the corners of the sheet to the middle line.
- Turn the workpiece and lower the outer corners bend upwards.
- Wrap the entire bottom edge up.
- Fold the blank in half.
Now your module is ready for use! With the help of the resulting pockets, you can connect parts together. Having trained on standard blanks, you will be able to fold small, long, narrow or wide modules, if this is required by the technique of adding certain figures.
Modular Origami: Butterfly
In order to consolidate the knowledge gained in practice, watch the following video, which describes the modular origami technique for making a beautiful flower.
Composition with a flower can be added.For example, below you can see how to fold a three-dimensional butterfly shape out of paper.
To work you need modules of such colors:
- red - 88 pieces;
- yellow - 68 parts;
- blue - 26 modules;
- purple - 4 elements;
- orange - 16 pieces;
- green - 13 parts;
- brown - 3 pieces.
Paper work must begin with the addition of the body. It will keep the rest of the details of the figure from the modular origami technique.
- Take the 4 green modules and pair them together in pairs.
- Connect them with one brown and two red details.
- Put on 2 green parts again, and brown and red on them. Repeat the combination until you have 4 red pockets on each side of the body.
After assembling the body, the origami technique requires a direct transition to work on the wings.
- On the top right red module, put on 10 red parts so that their free pockets look down.
- Connect 2 yellow modules as shown in the image.
- Put on this design on the second from above free red pocket. Add 9 of the same modules, resetting them in the free red pockets from the top row.
- On the third free pocket, start putting on the blue modules - only 11 pieces.All their bottom pockets should remain free.
- At the first blue free element, put on 2 yellow ones as shown in the picture.
- Line up the yellow row by adding 10 more elements.
- Connect the fourth red module to the yellow one using another red element and add 5 of the same elements downwards.
- On the right, complete another level of 5 yellow pieces.
- Add 2 yellow elements in the middle of the wing for fixing and sealing.
- The next row line up from 5 blue and orange module.
