Solving Minty Flowers Origami Tessellation

 Recently, I purchased some tant paper on amazon. I was skeptical about whether or not it would work better for more complex tessellations.

I was pleasantly surprised with how well it facilitated a small and intricate design. 

This tessellation was my first time using it and I am quite happy with the final result. 

I used it to fold 'Minty Flowers' tessellation by Arseniy K. It worked beautifully. 

As far as solving the design, the shapes and techniques were all quite familiar and it came together quickly. It's an elegant pattern that I quite like. And thanks to the fancy paper, it was a pleasure to actually fold it. 

The tessellation consists of micro rhombuses around small hex twists. 

There are small triangle twists adjacent to the rhombuses and those lead into offset hex twists on the other side. 

I did create a crease pattern sketch which I will include at the end. 

You can see from the photo of the reverse side below that everything is pretty densely packed. It's not for the faint of heart. 

But if you're brave enough to attempt it, it's a very satisfying design to execute.
