I finished a window display today for a custom frame shop in SF. I used an Origami parrot model which I hand-painted onto the tail feathers some of my dyes. The planes were vintage Nor Cal maps. This was fun!!
This week’s Origami class project…sweet treats! The banana split dish and the ice cream cones are from Origami Club website.
The banana and root beer float are my own design. I added a biscotti cookie and cherry to the banana split. The foam on top of the root beer float is simply white tissue paper along with a paper straw.
The lettuce/cabbage comes from a blintz base and then some folding upwards of the corners to create the 3D effect.
The carrot model is my own design. I put holes into the chipboard (which is covered with brown paper) so the carrots could seem like they were growing up out of the ground.
The tomatoes are my own design, too although they are a variation of a model which is probably already out there in Origami-land somewhere. The tomatoes can easily become strawberries with one less fold at the bottom (in case the students prefer them over tomatoes).
