Still, with the Easter Egg? On Valentine’s Day? I was always a little out of time. More than a little.
Yet, this day week is Ash Wednesday and learning this model will make for an excellent Lenten exercise. When you’re intent on curve folding, it is very difficult to contemplate new sins and manifold wickedness. Like invading a third foreign country to distract people from looking at why you invaded the second or noticing how poorly things are going in the first. That sort of thing.
I’m working out the bugs on this MVF diagram schema. Also stands for Mountain, Valley, Flat. And here, in this new sequenced crease pattern, we’re trying it out. This isn’t what it’s intended for, but what of that? Here, the Mountain folds are heavy black lines. The Valley folds are heavy magenta lines. The Flat lines, folds we made earlier but aren’t using right now, are hairline black. One crease leads to the next. It’s just like sudoku.
I don’t know if this makes things clearer, but it does make them prettier.
My inability to draw with depth means that once again, I add photo montages to cover the difficult bits. Conceptually, this is not a difficult fold — it’s the curved surface circle equivalent of a waterbomb. You can memorize the folding sequence pretty quickly. It’s the pons asinorum of learning the curved fold that will slow you down. Persevere. You’ll get it.
Beats the hell out of going to Babylon by bus.
