Origami Sink (Method 2)

Folding under the conventional name “shell” – is one of the techniques used in the process of making figures in the technique of origami.

To fold the paper into a “shell” means to wrap the protruding middle of the sheet inwards. The difficulty is not to wrinkle the core that we are wrapping. Let’s try this technique on example – “Standing core”.

Step 1

Let’s start with a basic water bomb shape. Our goal is to wrap the top corner of the triangle inside, which in the unfolded sheet is the center.

Step 2

Fold the triangle in half so that the fold line goes through the center of the top corner to the base, then unfold it back.

Step 3

Fold the top corner back in. Work the folds so that their lines are well-defined.

Step 4

Bend the top corner back to get a trapezoid shape of your paper.

Step 5

Unfold the piece of paper completely. In the center, the fold lines form a square and divide it diagonally.

Step 6

Lift the lines forming the square and gently iron the folds.

Step 7

Click on the sides of the square, connect them – and the center of the sheet itself will “collapse” inside.

Step 8

Take the two right corners of the square and connect them.

Step 9

In the photos you can see what result we achieved and how the sharp tip of the base shape disappeared inside.
