I began to like closed sinks a lot more than open ones because you can do them without opening up half of the model, so if possible I would always prefer making a closed instead of an open sink.

And, most times, you can convert the closed sink into an open sink too, just by slowly pulling apart the trapped layers. :)

I'm glad this is still being discussed...

cause I have yet to find an answer. I have no problem with a full closed sink on a practice piece of paper. If I can open the paper, a closed sink is no problem at all. However, to perform a closed sink on a model that is being created, well that is another story. Lang describes a technique of creating a "rabbit ear" first, and then inverting it, etc. But to achieve this without tearing the paper, especially kami (or by opening the whole model) seems almost impossible.

Surley someone can elaborate on how they perform a closed sink on various models. Even better would be a mini video!
