the speks supernova step-by-step:
form a ring of 6 speks. wrap your chain of speks around 3 sides of the ring to create an irregular hexagon. fill in the hole and repeat 80 times (it's meditative and doesn't take too long, promise).
attach 3 hexagons around another, so they align (not interlock). fold the 3 outside in, to form a mini pyramid. repeat 20 times!
grab 5 mini pyramids and attach them together in a ring. be sure that the interlocking and aligned edges of each mini pyramid line up with the next!
add another 5 mini pyramids to the top of each in the ring. make sure those edges match!
grab another 5, you know what you're doing by now but we'll explain it anyway! attach 5 more mini pyramids. bringe the gap between the last layer and start to enclose the shape.
make a ring from the last 5 mini pyramids and attach it on top of your build - or add them one by one, you do you!
attach 3 speks to each of your shapes point'n corners to finish the build! NICE!
