Here is the wagtail and it has 155 steps.
Mariano zavala is gonna make tutorial of every single kamiya model, even the non published ones like Winged kirin and stuff. I am sure he is responsible for the delay in WOSK 3. I did some research online and found out he is making 550$ every month and his channel is growing everyday so this is kinda worrysome . What a snake
maybe kamiya should make youtube tutorials instead of diagrams then
So, here it is.
Wow, the wagtail really looks amazing!

hi, /po/, ive recently gotten back into origami again, for the past few years i havent been into it. returning to the hobby, i found an amazing model but couldnt find diagrams for it, so i improvised the folds myself to come up with something similar. its not finished yet, its a modular piece, but i wanted to show you guys. Maybe ill make a brief video on making the units as well if anyone is interested. in the meantime, what pieces have you created yourself? pic attached is mine, will post picture of the model that inspired me as well as a note on key differences.

as you can see, my version has dual colored faces on the corners of the cube shape, the symmetry that this model follows is the cuboctohedron, which has squares (the spiral faces) and triangles (the stellated triangular faces on the corners).

Dear /po/,
I am in the market for a paper cutting machine. I have been looking around today and the Sizzix eclips2 caught my eye (pic related).

Is this machine recommended? If not, which one is your preferred machine? I want to make lots of tiny cardboard boxes, so cutting performance with thicker stocks is important to me, as well as speed and reliability (of cut as well as hardware). Which machine do you use and why? What would you recommend for me?

kind regards
I have a Silhouette Cameo 3. It's pretty decent. Havent had any real problems with it. Some times it takes a few minutes to start cutting, I think its a software issue or something, but it still gets the job done.
I'm find a lot of different prices for both machines. Shop around for whichever is cheaper.

what do you think about making sculptures out of aluminum foil?
113 replies and 18 images omitted. Click here to view.
I always liked doing that when I was a child.


orikami (origami) is folds, no cuts or glue. (traditionally, with SQUARE paper, the symmetry is why it is important)

kirikami (kirigami) is a whole seperate field ascribed to what you have described, cutting and glueing and shaping, oft not using square sheets.

as an expert modular folder, i say they are origami. every (EVERY) piece, or UNIT, is made from a SQUARE. dont take my modulars to try to prove a non factual point
this! by combining the two types of paper craft, you diminish the finer points of both! stop trying to be inclusive! youre diminishing both hobbies!
>no cuts (...) traditionally, with SQUARE paper
Not at all.
"Traditionally", it was done essentially for religious purpose, and there was often one or many cuts (and the paper wasn't usually square either).
The whole "one square no cut" is a relatively recent origami "rule".

>starts off with potentially good advice about being assertive and approaching girls (which is in fact not mutually exclusive with improving yourself but complementary to it).
>shits the bed with the same superficial "Get-Your-Life-Together Starter Pack™" advice pushed on /fit/ and /fa/

The only good point there is talking to girls and new people more often.
Believe it or not, other people are also insecure, and even if they're more attractive, they can always find something to feel insecure about. They key is to be confident, and assertive if necessary, around other people, and that comes from practice more than anything. If you want to look good for yourself that's great, but if you don't learn how to feel confident regardless of your looks, you'll become overly reliant on them and you'll just be a slightly better looking socially awkward guy. Or you can go for plastic surgery until you're a 10/10, but then what if you're not as tall or as muscular as the other guys? The issue with confidence must be addressed from within. Have you ever met scrawny, average, or fat people who were popular and had girlfriends? what about people with long hair, no hair, or mohawks? I've known all these kinds of popular and social people, far more often than I've met of the fit and buzzcut variety.
Looking good might make more people receptive to you, but if you have the personality of a log and can't keep a conversation going with anyone, no one's going to waste their time with you.

Maybe you remember this from the origami gifts thread, but last year for a Secret Santa thing I gave these models to somebody as a gift. Now Christmas is approaching again and I want to be ready in time with some really impressive models. I’ve purchased for this occasion a 40×40 cm sheet of Origami Shop red tissue foil (so not the actual tissue foil made with foil, but it still has its properties), a 45×45 sheet of green sandwich paper (the ‘real’ tissue foil) and a 48×48 sheet of dark green Elephant Hide. I would like to make, among others, the following models:
-Eric Joisel’s Dwarf (probably from green homemade tissue foil, not the one from the Shop)
-Robert Lang’s Murex (from white tissue foil made by myself)
-some kind of impressive dragon. I’m not sure what to choose between Jo Nakashima’s Devil Dragon, Kade Chan’s Fiery Dragon 2.0 or Tadashi Mori’s Darkness Dragon. I definitely want it to be complex but not Ancient or Western Dragon-tier.
What other suggestions do you guys have? I want to give about five or six models in total, I want to keep them reasonably complex or sophisticated-looking, I have access to plenty of PDF’s of origami books and, of course, YouTube tutorials, and I don’t need to exclusively use the papers I’ve bought (although the red tissue foil could be reserved for the dragon), also being able to make small sheets of tissue foil at home (which I wouldn't prefer because they are very uncomfortable to fold with).

Okay I’m bumping my own thread NOW
Dude, don't make a dumbed down rip-off of the Ancient Dragon, just make the Ancient Dragon.

make a Ryujin.
On a more serious note, how about Roman Diaz's Hippocampus? It's kinda pretty but quirky too.
where do you get your paper? dont know where to get large square sheets for the complex folds, i really want to do tessellations, specifically, the hydrangeas, i like youre clover. i was able to do the rose tessellation with just office paper but never got past three by three
Origami Shop, I mentioned it in the OP. If you’re asking about the paper of the models in the picture, they’re all coloured printer paper, except for the dog which is homemade tissue foil.

Any interesting diagrams for tiny ass papers?

Depends on the type of paper really. Regular kami and printer paper offer fewer options than tissue foil and double tissue. Also it's a skill based endeavor. Less folding, more molding at certain points
It's like folding thick ass paper that's larger. You'll quickly come to understand that you aren't folding a 2 dimensional perfect plane, but something with real thickness.

smaller papers work well for nice, crisp, modulars.

did the geometry myself
fkn cool, reminds me of a luger I did back in highschool, wish I kept it.
How did you manage to make the arms and legs like that? Is it similar to the thingy on bread bags?
that’s exactly it layered on some paper over it as well

Origami is folded paper. Modular or not. Dumb ass.
When did I claim otherwise?
