So here’s a really old model, apparently I made it in 2013? It rounded out my set of platonic solids. Yep, that’s the good old dodecahedron, with 12 faces, 30 edges, and 20 vertices. I use one piece of paper per edge, so that’s 30 pieces of paper.
Looking back, I have some disagreements with how I made this model. I chose to use patterned washi paper, but I should have used solid-colored paper instead. The model already has patterns in it–the pinwheels, which are created by showing part of the backs of the paper. The second problem is that I used paper with a bunch of different patterns, rather than sticking to just one or two. The end result is a bit chaotic. These days I try to make models with a more focused aesthetic.
