These vividly colored icosahedrons look great when hung from the ceiling, or a wall, but the fun doesn't stop there. You'll notice that the colors seem to follow a pattern which is quite amazing.
I'll skip over the cool math that is involved, but try holding two opposite nodes still, and spin it by 1/5 of a rotation. What happens to all the yellows? All the greens? etc. Maybe I'll make a video about it later!
My icosahedrons are made using colored skewers that are held together with wire. It is not glued, but the whole thing is dipped in acrylic medium to give it a nice shiny finish. They are very durable and can be kicked around the house without breaking (don't try too hard though, ok?)
