named by the Shumakovs
The snail base is not the traditional origami base. The Shumakovs have marked and named this base after the model of the Snail that was created by them. This base is used as a foundation for many their designs. There are several ways to fold this base. Here is presented one way, which uses the bird base as its foundation, and this way is shorter and more optimized. Note: If you have the CD "Oribana" you can see how many models have the snail base as their foundation.
|This should be the result. Repeat the actions with the remaining flaps.||Here is the completed snail base. Each base is named after the best-known model for which it is used. So, the Snail base we named in honor of the Snail model, you can see its diagrams in Origami Studio.||There is other way of folding the Snail base, which uses the Frog base as its foundation.|
