# Modular origami: vases floor schemes for beginners

These masterpieces are obtained from paper from those who mastered the technique of modular origami. But if a person is just learning, he should start with a vase scheme.

Modular origami is a folding techniqueinteresting figures of many details. Different animals, flowers, cartoon characters from small modules turn out to be colorful and almost real. Since they completely retain the volumetric form. So, let's see how the modular origami - the scheme of the vase - is step-by-step, in our case.

## How are the circuits assembled?

Assembled parts (modules)by themselves do not represent complexity. But the figures of them require patience. For large scale artifacts, a large number of these parts are sometimes required.

As for the question of how simple modular origami is made, schemes of a vase, for example, or a swan, then these handicrafts serve as the "base" of training.

Rules for constructing any object in a modularorigami are simple. The first row of modules combines and holds the second row, which is superimposed on top of the bottom row. And the third row holds the second, and serves as the basis for 4 - and so on.

It is only necessary to add up in the correct sequencemulti-colored elements. If you break the order of the colored elements, the pattern in the diagram will collapse. Simple pictures are visible visually, and if desired, you can not get off. But more complex drawings require special care.

## How to make corner modules?

Introduction to modular origami begins withthe construction of elementary particles of this world - with modules. Before you disassemble in detail, how to build a vase of modules, you still need to learn how to make modules, and to know how they connect with each other.

We divide sheet A4 into equal rectangles, cut outtheir. Each rectangle is bent in half twice. Along the second deflection bend the corners, the remaining squares at the bottom raise. The resulting triangle is bent in half. This detail will serve for crafts.

## A simple vase with diagonal strips of modules

We collect a simple vase, overlapping one by onethe necessary modules one after another in a checkerboard pattern according to a simple scheme. Two parts of the first row and one detail of the second; two second rows - one third. So we go through 3 rows.

But first, let's explain one subtle rule. The bottom of the vase is more delicate, then the craft is expanding in volume. And to expand this craft, you need to increase the number of modules in the circle. To do this, for each tooth of the previous row, we overlay 1 module of the next row, only the next 3 modules should be set according to the basic rule. After all, the figure must hold tight. And so we alternate the modules starting from the 4th row.

Already with 3 rows you need to make 2 pieces of anothercolors to create a diagonal pattern. After each row, it is necessary to bend the folded elements in the desired direction. Thus, the diameter of the vase is first expanded, then, in the same sequence and with the same pattern, gradually decreases.

And when the top of the vase becomes as thin asbottom, you can make beautiful triangular racks to slightly raise the vase along the length. In total it is required to prepare 392 modules of one color and 296 to another.

The result is a vase with diagonal strips along. This is a very interesting scheme for beginners.

## Modular origami vase: artwork scheme

Complex drawings require special care from a person. Advice to newcomers - do not forget to recalculate the modules in each row.

Modular origami (vases), assembly schemes which are complicated by different elements of decor, must be collected, watching the master class. However, you can rely on the graphic scheme. Let us give an example.

Knowing how to fasten the elements together, you can safely take on assembling simple vases according to similar schemes. For convenience, we also give a scheme for calculating the modules.

It's impossible to keep track of the design in the process without getting lost. Especially when a person is taken for the first time for a design. Must check.

## Vase with a complicated shape and pattern

A more beautiful vase in the form of a lotus is collected according to a different scheme. Let us examine some nuances of the assembly.

Modular origami (vase scheme) is characterized byin that all the figures are symmetrical. The white and yellow details in each row are equal. The trick of this scheme is that the patterns in the form of petals are made as if in separate windows. They are built on the principle: 9 triangles - one side of the petal, and 9 - the other. Below and above, they are held by common units. All other stages are already familiar, we will not dwell on them. And the number of elements can be calculated based on the height of the craft, and build your own scheme. You can train further and try to make alternative schemes, relying on the imagination.

## Crafts of origami of varying complexity

The rest of the crafts are made on the same principle,as shown in the example of the previous schemes. When conventional patterns are mastered, one can take up the manufacture of delicate models, dotted with various small ornaments from multi-colored drawings. In complex handicrafts there are such elements as carved "windows", columns. At the same time, it is important not to lose count of the modules used in each row.

This is how the modular origami "vase" looks, the scheme of which is much more complicated than the scheme in the form of an elementary "cocoon". But the handy at the same time is more interesting and colorful.

This art knows no limits, and all schemesare dynamic. If you want to build a larger modular origami, the big vase scheme will be the same, only the elements need to be created twice as much. And to fold a large vase is also twice as long. In fact, to build a large modular origami, the vase scheme needs to be scaled.

## Scheme of an outdoor vase of origami

Let's proceed to the explanation of the assembly of a very largeoutdoor vase. Here we need a skeleton made of cardboard, which would support such a large modular origami. The floor vase (the scheme of the crafts) does not contain a limited number of elements. Origami precisely replicates the scale of this outdoor vase. And the number of elements is even difficult to calculate. Orient in this case you need to your own creative vision of the subject.

To start, you need to find the model you like, and then start from it. How such a modular origami, (vase scheme) will look like? Also what it is necessary to do further?

• The cardboard tube should be taken as tightly as possible. At the entire height, paste cardboard circles that will support the shape.
• The bottom is also made of solid cardboard.
• Modules origami to build in stages from one floor to another.
• Do not first make a too "thick" vase.
• The number of all modules in the series is preferably written on paper during work.

Here it is clear: The more such cardboard floors, the higher the vase will be. If the "creator" is still experiencing difficulties in the technique of drawing drawings in origami, it is easier to make a monophonic vase, without any drawings.

After you learn how to build different modular origami (vases), the assembly schemes for these crafts will become easy fun.
