Origami Pine cone

53 Comments
7K Views
My submission for `synconi's   Folding Challenge 

"The theme this month is BOLDLY FOLD AS YOU'VE NEVER FOLDED BEFORE."

I've decided to fold this pine cone because it is both a tessellation model and a plant, which are two things I seldom do and have never uploaded to my gallery before.

Made from a 12 inch square of paper, painted with acrylic paint before folding.
The model is a design by Beth Johnson.

So cool, I'd love to have these as Christmas tree ornaments, or even wintery decor.

That's crazy!  :D
I can imagine these making great ornaments.  ;)

Thanks and yes, they do make for a nice ornament.  :)

Love it so much! Maybe it's incorrect to say like that but I think this one deserved to win a challenge the most :-).

Thank you very much.
While it would have been nice to win the challenge, I think the winners were well deserving too.
I am happy that you liked mine the most though.  :hug:

Thanks, I wanted it to look 'natural' so I am glad you thought it looked close to real.

I too like to paint the paper with acrylics! May I ask where you get your paper from, though? 
FoldedWilderness's avatar
The paper I use is most often Yasutomo "fold'ems" origami paper, since it's widely available in my local shops.

It's not the highest quality paper to work with on it's own but, it's thin enough to still be workable when painted.

I've had colored packs of the same type, and I have painted the white sheets with excellent results! You have found it in packs of just white?

Wonderful! The setting and photography are excellent.

Out of your normal comfort zone, and you're still excelling! The folds and creases are beautifully done and it looks so perfect and delicate hanging there...gorgeous :heart:

Thank you very much. 
  It's mostly your fault that I tried that and I am happy about it.
