Based on the words by Fishgoth: here's an idea for a new type of thread. We have many innovative folders and designers on this mailing list, who specialize in different techniques and levels of complexity. I thought it would be fun to introduce a creation exercise that we can share.
The topic is boxes and/or lids. The idea is that you create an original design of an origami box, a box with a lid, or just a lid for one of the traditional box models (it has to be for a traditional box), and you share it right here through the list. Let's place as deadline for the exercise: August 31st, so you can start sharing your entries from July 16th up to the dead line. What's allowed: -Any number of sheets -Squares, other rectangles, regular polygons, circles, and straight isosceles triangles -Very little cutting -Very little gluing -More than one model per origamist What isn’t allowed -Variations of nontraditional models (Taking someone else’s model as base for yours). The entry must include -Your name or pseudonym -Name of the model -Links to one or more pictures of the model -Details of the model: Type of material? Number of sheets? Shape of each sheet? Size of each one and of the finished model? Cuts? Glue? This will be just for fun and for creating a model we're happy with. At the end of the challenge I will compile all the models with their respective participants and share them through the list. Let me know if you have any questions. Have fun creating ; ) Gerardo gerardo(a)neorigami.com
