Help folding Roman Diaz Unicorn

Postby Chrom » November 28th, 2010, 7:05 pm

Hello everybody,

I was wondering if anyone can give me a help in folding Diaz' Unicorn. I am in troubles with step number 34, which is not really clear to me. It says "Wrap the layer behind to the front", but actually I don't understand if it's a kind of sink fold or else.

Browsing the later steps, it would be great if you could also give a clue about steps 38-40 that look quite complicated.

Thanks a lot for helping!

It's not a sink, the fold in 34 will form part of the mane, if you look at 36 it seems that nothing had happened, but really the flap that in 34 is trapped is now free.
38 - 40 it's a little tricky, the only advice I can give you is to mark really well the folds shown in 39, pivoting around the point indicated everything should go at its place.

Step 44 is something like a "unsink", you have to separate the upper layer from the under one following the signed folds, like "blowing up", the model is now no more flat, probably in step 45 there's an error on the colour of the layer, but if you look closely at the shape of the different layers in step 46 it should be clear what happens.
Then the flap "blown" on step 44 comes back at his place.
You must consider that the point marked "x" in step 43 is inside and in the end at step 47 outside.

Gah!! I still cant do it :'(

I get the unsinking part.
But the rest makes no sense. when i do think im doing it correct it doesn't look right, the paper is uneven at the flaps made at 42 . Would it be possible for you to upload a picture??

Thanks for you help so far btw ;)

I'm stuck at level 43 too!!

Someone just told me I should use wet fold which I did not... I think it might be the reason why I'm stuck here. Though I have not tried it yet.
Anyone can tell me from the link below... which opening should I do the sink? 1st opening layer or 2nd opening layer?

wet-folding anything is usually a bonus, not a necessity.
