This is my newest Tessellation. It’s a test version and incomplete.
On the left is a flower and on the right an arrangement of trapez twists, the folding of both is nearly the same, that’s why this kind of progress was so obvious ^-^ The 3Dness of the flower on the left is inspired by Garibiilan’s “Hexagoned and bleached Red Flower Tess”
At the CP the similarity between the flower and the trapez twist can be seen. The main mountain creases are continouse through the whole CP, only the valley folds and some small mountain folds change.
These are some explanations, because I don’t like to work with CP’s (I can’t read them) and I know some other people have problem with CP’s too.
I’ve started with 8 pleat wide open back hex pleat, surrounded by 6 others, similar to Eric Gjerdes Spread Hex Tess with twice the width (if you don’t know, what I’m talking about, don’t be shy and ask ^-^ I’m not sure if I always use the right term for things)
1. I guess this is similar to this one by Garibiilan
2. on the way to many triangle twists, every possible triangle should be twisted
3. many triangle twists
4. at this point we could make puff stars ^-^ but we will go on and …
5. & 6. squash this parts
7. everything sqashed
8. just open…
9. -11. … and close again, but with this little part outside
12. squash this little parts and the first part is finished ^-^
