The Starlight model is made from a hexagon and can be lit up! Tessellation techniques like triangle twists are used so strong paper is essential. Otherwise, as with tessellations, the paper may rip and will be hard to shape.
Paper - 12" square paper, making it into a hexagon will be shown or White 6 inch hexagon (6 inches per side) of Canson Mix Media or Canson Mi-Teintes paper (98 pound). *Using white works best with the LED light.
Elephant hide paper will work but tends to be more opaque.
Light - 2 or 3 inch LED puck light works well for this size hexagon. These lights usually come with a remote which is great so you don’t have to keep removing the light from the model to operate it. They are available on line and at local discount stores.
