Origami Pine cone by FoldedWilderness Origami Pine cone by FoldedWilderness
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.

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

I too like to paint the paper with acrylics! May I ask where you get your paper from, though?

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?

I showed this to my husband, because he loves origami, and we're both amazed at how realistic and amazing this is.  I love that you actually put it in a pine tree, too :)

I had not really looked at it quite this way but, it is true that all the lines can almost look like those optical illusions.
