I have soooooo many things I should be doing instead of this... Oh well.

Anyway, I saw a wikihow article on how to make a chinese spiral, but since I was short about 80 popsicle sticks, I decided to make a model of one.

My process: I first made a stick. Then I duplicated the stick, stuck this stick on the first stick, and rotated it 6 degrees around the y-axis. Then, I combined the two sticks, duplicated them, stuck them on the originals, and rotated them 12 degrees. Combined the 4, duplicated them, stuck them, rotated them 24 degrees. Rinse, repeat, until I was rotating a batch 192 degrees. Then, I just put a third layer of the current stack on, took a few off the top so it wouldn't be so symmetrical, and added a "hanger" (really just a streeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetched out cube).

Hope ya likey!

ShadowsGirlfriend1_0I had one of those once, they're so fun to stare at lol
But then my cat got her hands on it, and well it's gone now xD I admie your process very much! All the math you used to make this, I would have never thought of that on my own. The 80 popsicle they even sell them in such a large quantity? xD Great job anyways!
