Thanks, Gerardo! I am so glad you found the chart useful! I have had it
since 2007 and published in several of my books, but your email prompted me
to post it for everyone. I did the color distribution virtually by playing
with colors on my drawing software with some educated guess. It ended up
being fun! The 3-color icosahedron and dodechedron were the most

While multiple colors look nice, some modulars are actually better with a
single color, or duo colored paper. If there are flowery designs involved,
they actually look nice if all petals are in a single color. But for some
modulars such as polypolyhedra (wireframes) or more geometric designs,
multiple colors are nice.

So how about making a

That’s very kind of you. You’re welcome to create hashtags as long as you
include #origamee, and start the campaign. I am not that much on social
media, only a little. Please also feel free to publish in Neorigami.
