Anaglyph! (Red Left Blue Right)
A larger size from the flickr page may work better.

It's amazing how different those stars look monotoned rather than the multi colored ones you've been building. I see patterns now that didn't show up on the others.
I guess with 12" wide tape you could build an emergency shelter, that wouldn't roll easily and had defensive spikes for bears.

Heh, and some sort of hammock inside, 'cause it's a bit spiky in there, too.

I like 'em. The metal ones are a little softer looking.

Interesting... they're actually much harder and sharper, of course...

I wonder whether the lighting (outdoor for the spiky one) is part of that effect.

I think the tape ones look "crisper" like they take an edge well where you fold them, and then the panel part remains pretty flat. You see a bunch of individual triangles that together form a tape creation.

The metal seems more malleable or fluid and doesn't seem as flat in the panel part. Like it makes a crisp fold at the pointy edges, but then bends slightly between folds. It gives it a softer, more fluid feel.

This cropped picture from flicker shows an area that looks like a star shaped bowl to me rather than a group of individual triangles. Maybe it's the lighting. Maybe it's the metal that will bend into a shape and then retain that shape, instead of bouncing back like plastic. Either way, I like it.

Yeah, me too. And I think that's it. When pressing the outer layer in place, it somewhat smooths the edges, and the foil holds the shape. The cup shape is indeed much more obvious on this one. Though, as Bruce mentioned, it may also be in part due to the monochromicity.

A small one, but it's a new shape.

Damn, this is frikkin' incredible stuff! I've heard references to your tape creations, HM, but I hadn't made it down to see any until just now. I'm astounded by your creativity and determination (to make so many triangles). I also know what your profile pic is all about, now. Bravo!

Another Christmas:









That last one has ten tiny little light bulbs intended for artificial flowers.

I like those. It's cool how the smaller ornament is nestled inside the larger one. I've seen glass ornaments with a similar style.

Thanks! I've done a few other nestled ornaments, but the reflective property of the foil tape adds something. Unfortunately, the opaque property means that the light is seldom as nice as a camera flash.

Whoa, those are neat. Are they a lot harder to do than the earlier ones?

Foil is harder, in that mistakes show much more obviously. This particular foil is still harder, in that, as actual duct repair tape, the glue is extremely strong, making mistakes much easier to make.

The shapes are no more complicated than anything I've done before, but the material's a challenge.

And I must confess that I positioned the pieces so as to not completely display how well I met that challenge.
