Origami from modules: history and features of art
Nowadays it is very fashionable and popular to do crafts with your own hands. It is unusual, interesting and helps to relax. One of the types of this activity is origami - the most interesting figured paper crafts, which can be made in the form of animals, flowers, characters and so on. But even more beautiful and improved are origami modules.
The beginning of creativity
This kind of creative work was coined in China. It is a triangular modular origami. The figure, which makes the master, consists of many components - modules. Each of them is folded according to a simple classical scheme of ordinary origami from a single sheet of paper, then the procedure of joining all parts follows. Adding glue is allowed, this is done so that the figure does not fall apart.
Get acquainted with the basics of art
Origami from the modules is a very unusual work, which is more complicated than the classical origami and, accordingly, much more impressive.The most popular crafts are animals (swans, elephants, cats, peacocks), cakes, cars and vases. The craft can be made for any holiday (depending on this, one or another origami scheme is chosen from the modules). Believe me, it is very easy to do. This product is also quite suitable as a gift.
The “modular origami” schemes can easily be thought up on their own or assembled from several different ones, according to which it is very easy to make one or another figure. You can also purchase literature on this topic with pictures and a detailed description. For example, consider how origami is made from modules. Let's take as a basis the figure of a swan. To prepare, we need modules of different colors (take three shades). We start with the first 15 rows, which should consist ultimately of 30 modules, and they should be assembled in a circle. Give shape and get the body of a swan. We make the neck of six modules, the tail of four, and the wings of 10. The neck should be formed in descending order, just like the tail. The wings consist of several rows: the first is 10 modules, the second is 11. The main thing is to form the shape of the wings correctly.Make reductions gradually and equally from both sides.
The originality of this art
Origami of the modules have their own characteristics. For example, the number of components can change the master, they can be formed and give an interesting shape that will make the craft more “alive”. Next, proceed to the second part. It is necessary to arrange the inner wings. To do this, collect 20 modules for each row (there will be seven). Reductions must be made before the first module. We divide the rows and form the shape of a swan. Next you need to make a neck, spout and decorate as your heart desires.
Also considered to be popular origami scheme "tree" of the modules. It consists of triangular components, namely from 355 modules. You can experiment, make, for example, an asterisk on the top of a tree and other various decorations. If you work on a scheme with pictures, you can pay attention to the fact that in the penultimate stages the Christmas tree will be very similar to the open star. It is from these elements that the future tree will consist.
