There are several types of origami art. The most ancient is the classical origami, for which only a sheet of paper is needed, mostly square.
The second version of this technique is modularOrigami, an article in which consists of many small modules. The module itself is composed of the same square sheet in a certain way. Modular origami is voluminous, from it truly admirable figures are created. In this technique, glue is often used to join parts, although due to the frictional force, parts of the whole are firmly held in place and without fasteners. On the basis of modular origami, voluminous flowers are created from paper, the schemes of which are very diverse and varied in complexity. The most impressive products of this variety are kusudams - volumetric balls, mainly from flower modules.
A newer direction is simpleorigami, intended for beginners. In this technique, only a few techniques from the classical method are used, which contribute to the consolidation of the initial skills.
To master the art of creating paperfigurines, it is necessary to study a special system of signs, which was created in the 20th century by Akira Yoshidzawa. Thanks to it, you can record each step in making a model, in order to repeat it in the future. From these symbols is the origami scheme.
Having carefully studied the designation of each sign,By strictly following the step-by-step instructions, you can create a real masterpiece, in particular, flowers made of paper. The scheme of their addition depends on what kind of flower it is necessary to perform and in what technique.
So, according to the signs on the diagramthe origami player knows what needs to be done in the next moment - to add, unfold, inflate or reveal the figure. Thanks to coordinated actions and fixed knowledge, even unfamiliar figures will be obtained from the first time.
The very first origami was created from cocoonssilkworm, which at certain actions were similar to paper sheets. True, the cost of this material was very high, so the masters began to develop new ways of making paper.
Whatever they used to create figurines -bark of trees, bamboo, various cloth. But the most optimal material was paper. In the modern world, the best option for creating origami is plain office paper. Due to its characteristics modular origami comes out perfectly - they do not crumble, they keep their shape and perfectly adhere to each other.
A good replacement for plain paper are stickers. They are produced in small form, so they simply create a small module.
In Japan, special factories producespecial paper - wasi. It is slightly different in quality, and is made from fibers of different plants. All over the world, for origami art, paper "kami" is used, designed specifically for this sphere.
From a regular sheet using a variety of optionsfolding it is possible to compose flowers from paper. The scheme in each individual case will undoubtedly differ, as in principle the flowers in nature are different.
You can create one sheet of paper asa separate flower spike, and part of the whole future bud (module). More often, the figures of colors are created from several folded sheets of paper, fastening together. But for beginners or children it's worth starting classes directly with simple elements.
Having decided with the appropriate color, you canperform paper crafts. Flowers, the schemes of which are chosen by the master, should be done very carefully, so as not to crush the edges or center of the product, especially if the model is bulky.
To master the technique of origami, you need frequenttraining and fixing the basic techniques. It is also worth remembering that large and bulky models can not come out right away, so do not be upset if you do not get beautiful flowers from paper from the first minutes. Schemes are different, you will certainly find one that will help you master and consolidate the technique.
First, consider the picture and try to reproduce all the actions, achieving the same final result.
Step 2. After that, the angles of the triangle must be folded along the resulting fold line so that they touch the center. The resulting pockets need to be turned out.
Step 3. Angles of triangles should be gently curled. From this figure will find a beautiful outline, and it already looks like part of the flower. Similarly, you should create 5 such modules and connect them together. That's so simple and simple simple flowers made of paper. The scheme, as we see, is not at all complicated, even a child can cope with this.
The example considered relates to a modulartechnique of creating origami from paper. The flower, the scheme of which is presented above, is simple in execution. But in this art there are also complex models, consisting of a large number of modules. If the figure is made in the form of a ball of flowers, it is called the Kusudama. There is a belief that a hung such a ball over the bed will bring the owner a strong, healthy sleep and pleasant dreams.
In addition, unsurpassed in the interiorother modular flowers origami of paper. Schemes of such figures are created based on mathematical calculations. They can be found in specialized manuals, which are issued by master-origami masters.
As you can see, what at first glance seemssimple and banal, in fact it is an ancient art and very widespread in the world. One of the beautiful creations is, of course, the origami of paper - a flower, the scheme of which can be as simple, for children, and very difficult, for true masters.
