Origami Magic Mandalas continues the Action Origami Series by the Oriland authors and shows you how to fold amazing torus-shaped mandala designs out of simple modules that you can rotate and meditate!
The book features three modular action designs - two Magic Mandala Toruses, one with simple locks (160 modules) and the other with advanced locks (128 modules), and the incredibly intricate Celestial Mandala Torus (96 modules) crowning the collection.
On 72 full color pages, there are about 300 detailed step-by-step colorful vector- and photo-diagrams with written instructions along with 60 photos of examples of completed models that will guide you through folding the 3 original action origami designs. Each chapter presenting a particular design offers recommendations on paper type, colors and size including indication of the sizes of the completed models. Modules of each design are surprisingly easy to fold, while assembling the whole torus can take time and require patience, so, overall, the designs of this book can be assigned to intermediate level of folding. No any glue, just clever paper locks!
The fascinating mandala toruses will impress with their simplicity of folding, visual complexity and flexibility of rotation! They produce a mesmerizing effect when revolved, showing balanced visual elements of changing patterns of folds and colors in a harmonious way.
We hope you will enjoy this book, creating the amazing Origami Magic Mandalas you can rotate! Happy folding!
