This is another design shown to me by Matt DeVos.
If you can get ahold of one, 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.
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.
