Double-blintzed bird base corrugation (top-down)

After tessellating the blintzed bird base, a natural next step for me was to double-blintz it. Bird base blintzed two times can be tessellated and it results in a more interesting pattern than the singly-blintzed variant. The pattern is significantly different on both sides.

 

This corrugation was folded from Japanese Tsumugi paper. Even for my standards, this paper is very thick (140 gsm) and doesn’t seem suitable for folding anything but corrugations. However, its color is very saturated and it has a beautiful texture which is supposed to resemble the traditionally woven tsumugi fabric.
