Book Origami Gothic Cathedral
I saw a new design that I wanted to learn how to do on my own. It looks like architecture in a cathedral. After a bunch of trial and error, I figured out how to make the soft curve of an arc. Yay me! My next experiment is to alternate pages and the curves, so it makes a circle-type of shape. Can't wait to see if/how it turns out.
What am I going to do with these sculptures? I love them and would like to become good enough at making them to feel comfortable selling them. Is that just a pipe dream? Would anyone really care about them?
Oh, I learned something new with this folding pattern. I don't know if it can be seen well in the picture, but some of the arc bottoms are pointier than the others. One side of the book vs the other side. The pointy ones were creased with my thumb nail after folding. The curvier ones were just folded with my finger. No sharp creasing. I like the look so much more...
