Here's my Sonobe Jasmine Dodecahedron built from Imatfaal's instructions.
I built it using "cheap" patterned origami paper (150 cm so I could use Imatfaal's measurements) from Michael's. I then took some silver metallic leafing paint and painted the exposed white parts with some overlap before putting the object together. I must admit that I am not an origami purist. I did not cut the slits. I assembled the dodecahedron and then applied glue to each of the 30 vertices where the pentagons come together. It is now a very solid model, with the unintended consequence of letting the centers of the pentagons be pushed into the model which I think looks really cool. You can see that a little bit better in this video.
I also used the coloring scheme suggested in the post. One thing that I found out that is cool about this scheme is that it actually ends up making the colors form a dodecahedrally distorted version of the 5 intersecting tetrahedra, with each color making up one of the tetrahedra. This is really cool and so this is probably my favorite origami model now. Thanks Imatfaal!
