Whirlpool (design by Ekaterina Lukasheva)

This was one of the easier models in Ekaterina's new book "Kusudama Origami".  I wanted to show the transition from raw materials to finished product. I used a black kozo paper I picked up from Hollander's in Ann Arbor.  I love this paper it folds crisply with nice clean lines.  It also is very paintable, with minimal rippling.   I used a metallic gold paint to really contrast the sparkly black. This model is made with 30 units with 2:3 proportions.  I cut each piece 3 x 4.5 inch.  The finished model is about 7 inches tall.  No glue was needed to hold this together.
