So I'm looking to make one of these out of a sturdier material. Does anyone have any advice on what to use? Has anyone here done this before? If so how did it go?

when making forms in the past I would cut shapes out of pink insulation foam, stick them together with skewers, cut the excess of the skewers, then prime the resulting object with a few layers of Guesso, then use superglue to bind plastic plating to the Guesso, then smooth and fill gaps at the seams with an x-acto knife and milliput.

Then I'd have a form to use.

Evening guys, /po/ management here.

So we're back in the Elites after two and a half years and it feels bloody fantastic. We just wanted to say thank you to all of you guys for cheering us on and sticking with us for all this time. It really makes our day to see the fans we have come out and give us your support and we're really happy to give all of you something back.

But before we look forward to Summer, you can bet that we'll be going for the 9-point group finish on Saturday and we'll be trying to go all the way in this tournament.

Here's to an even more successful run here in Spring and the Summer ahead.

P.S. We're sorry for Broken Printer jamming on those shots.

As for my collection, I am only just now getting back into origami for the first time in about 6 years. Just made this cube thing.

Very impressive what you've made. Makes me want to attempt something big like this. I wonder if there's a template for a White Base?

thank very much.

Man. I love kusudamas. I usually follow youtube vĂ­deos for it.

I use printear gift wrapping paper as it's the easiest way I can obtain single sided paper on my country, and most kusudamas rely on the diferent colored faces.

I usually give them away as little gifts to people, everyone loves them, as they are so simple yet so elegant to display, but I think I have some pictures somewhere.

I'll post them if I find any.

Pic is one of my favourite models. Super easy to fold, but a bitch to put together. Impresive result.
>>
Get a kusudama book here:
>>553484
>>
I bought a book from Ekaterina Lukasheva. Its got 29 different models that can also be constructed from 30 pieces or 12 pieces, making a cube.
The paper I use is just some russian art collection book that cost 0,50 euros from the library. Its got a few hundred pages so it will last me a while to use the whole book.
Also considering on buying small led lamps from ebay or something and gluing them inside the paper balls. Will also possibly start selling them.

TUMBLR GET THE FUCK OUT

Hey there /po/, I'm trying to fold this dragonfly but there's one step I just don't get how to fold it even through the photos provided. :/
http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-dragonfly.html

pic related, it's the step I don't get.
>>
>>553361
I see. Basically what you need to do is fold the corner of the big triangle towards the centerline and then flatten the resulting flap between that fold and the wing. The bad image quality of this site doesn't help.

OP here.
Thank you so much, I quickly figured itout with your explanation.
Usually my fold are much cleaner though ... I don't really enjoy folding this model, probably won't do it again.
I varied it a little, adding some antennae with the leftover paper from reverse folding the head.

quick question....
is there software i can use to change pdf origami templates to 3d image that can be saved/converted to stl for 3d printing?
>>
The only way I see this being possible is if you took the time to model the piece in something line blender. There's no program that can take a diagram and make a 3d model that I know of.

Are there any functional paper craft bug houses? I'm hatching mantises, and wanted to build some decorative houses for them. They can't live together, and literally hundreds can come out of a single ooth (egg sack), so it would have to be something that could be built a few a night until they hatch. Not enough for all hundreds of course. I was planning on using nylon mesh and hot glue to seal the openings and cracks, and wanted to do better than pic related.

Also, stupid questions thread!

I also want to know why you're raising mantises. Also, do they bite you? Does it hurt? Mantises are one of those things I like more than I should.
>>
>>553463
They eat pests is why you usually hatch them around your property
I tried it once as a kid with an enclosed hanging ooth but that fell through when nothing happened
>>
>>553463
They do not bite. Also baby mantises are the cutest. They are literally like adults, but tiny. And when they hatch there are like 50 of them and they crowd around together.
