Mitanei’s playing cats

A friend of mine, Mitanei, designed this cat. We had a little origamisession and he showed me how to fold it (the left one is mine). I guess, I have some problems with shaping models… my cat looks more like a bear or something else… But it was a lot of fun to fold…

The Rat in the middle is folded by me, but designed my Joisel ^-^




I Played around a little bit and tried to fold some ideas I had through the “Octagons for October”-Challenge as hexagons, instead of octagons. Sadly it’s not so clean folded. The paper (darkred Tant, Hexagon out of a square(35x35cm), Grid 1:64) wasn’t the best choice and I was very confused while trying to shape it. Next time I’ll use EH.

“Octagons for October” second part

For the “Octagons for October”-Challenge I played a little bit with my octagonal Sahnehäubchen. Here are some Variations ^-^

a), b), c) & d) With an extra Twist, now there are three levels of octagonal twists

a) The first and the third twist have the same direction. This one is folded out of a small sheet of orange glassin (15x15cm)

b) & c) A little shaping, both twists on the top have the same direction, it’s out of a small sheet of orange Tant (15x15cm)

d) The first and the third twist have the same direction.

a) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 3 Backlit

b) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 4 (3D)

c) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 4

d) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variante 3

e) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variation 2

Nearly the same as the original octagonal Sahnehäubchen (with two octagonal Twists) I changed the direction of one twist, now they are twisted in the same direction, and made some small variations at the center twist, out of orange Tant (15x15cm)

f) Octagonales Sahnehäubchen Variation 1

Again an octagonal Sahnehäubchen with two octagonal Twists (different directions), but with a wider twist below, out of orange Tant (15x15cm)

Testing some paper, again ^-^

I tested some Tant (kind of paper) and wanted to see if it’s good for folding tessellations. I think it’s very good, that’s why I’ve ordered some big sheets of Tant (35x35cm). I hope the packet will come soon.
The lime green model is similar to my “Sahnehäubchen I” with a very little variation of the center.

At the end my camera is broken… I don’t know what happend, but it’s not possible to take a picture. Now I’ve to use the camera of my cell phone. Not a really good one.
