I need to use a bigger sheet of paper
This has to be the most deceptively hard thing ive seen. Mostly because of those confusing diagrams.
how did you do that? i cant understand

File deleted.
>like geometrical origami more than figurative/animal origami
>I don’t like folding huge grids for tessellations or making tens of modules for modular constructions
>I enjoy the process of folding a figurative model, but hate shaping it, since I’m not an artist and it comes out looking bad
This means that the only models I would completely enjoy making are the really simple ones without any shaping, and those are not interesting to me or anyone else at all. Is there anyone with the same feelings?
I like figurative origami better but i also don't like shaping. That's probably why i have a shit ton of not finished origami projects, stuck somewhere between the geometric base and the final model.

I still find shaping rewarding; afterall i find that my finished origami are pretty good but the shaping just take forever and it's not funny to fold... So yeah, i know that feel. Also folding a huge grid isn't fun to anyone.

But you can still find some figurative origami that require only little shaping/interpretation and still look good.
If you want to fold animals without shaping, try Komatsu Hideo models. They are great even without any shaping.
There are geometrical figures from one sheet of paper too, look for some of John Montroll's books.

I got some of this handmade paper for Christmas. It looks pretty, but it seems rather delicate and I'd rather not break it out until I have an idea for what to do with it. Any ideas for what to make, /po/?

For full details, 15x15cm, 16 multicolored sheets, manufactured by DAISO Japan.

What i foind is that often handmade paper does not have enough crisp. It might feel awkward, but if it is really soft you better treat it with MC or smthg similar. Other than that i belive Hideo Komatsu stuff is nice for this kind of size. With only 15x15 don't go for the crazy complex models, but if it is good paper don't waste it on a crane or similar!
Also there are a lot of turtle models of varying complexity. Should be a fit place to start with.
Thanks, I'll start there. I have never heard of MC until now, so I suppose I'll look into that as well. Is it something you can find at a craft store or will I most likely need to order it online?
It is basically wallpaper paste (go for the cheapest one, since these usually don't have additives). Just check the ingredients for methylcellulose (MC), or even better - if you can find it thought - carboxymethylcellulose (CMC)
it's a dollar store so it's probably pretty meh.

Let's fold together. I am folding models from this book for fun. Probably in order. Come join in, ask for help if needed, and help out if you can!

Lots of things actually. Tere is a very wide range of origami paper with an equaly wide range of properties so what i'll say doesn't hold for every origami paper but :
-It's thinner. Printer paper is 80-90g/sm, origami paper often goes to 40-50g/sm and can even go down to 20-30g/sm
-It's stronger. Origami paper often has long natural fibers which makes it stronger : more tear resistant and fatigue resistant.
-it's bigger. Almost every complex origami model need to be folded from a bigger square than 21cm.
-It's nicer. Colored paper, color sided paper, sometime with a nice a nice texture to imitate leather, skin, fur etc...
-it's less springy than copy paper and crispier. You don't realize that copy paper is springy in every day use but if your origami model has too much layers it tends to open and unfold by itself. The fact that origami paper is usually thinner and has more seizing in it tend to reduce this problem. Some origami paper even have a metalic foil sheet inside them to help the paper staying in place. This also help modeling.

oh hai doggy !

I probably needed bigger/thinner paper but I am delighted with these models.
took me a while too
Made Eevee today, I hope pokemons are allowed.
Well, it is a cute model, but this topic is supposed to be about folding models from OP's attached book (Montroll's Animal Origami for the Enthusiast).
What about starting a Pokémon thread, though?

can it be done? are those rounded cyrves possible with paper?
Ive been watching videos lately on how armor like this was made in the middle ages, using just a sheet of metal, a furnace, and a nail.


obviously paper bends on its own, but it cant stretch like metals can. with some trial and effort i thing i can make a very aesthetically pleasing armored boi using just paper and a wooden model
is this of any help?

I've got sweaty hand that morph and destroy paper, Helpssssssssssss!!!!
by the way, my contribution to people here
Holding your paper with tweezers can help. I also use cutproof gloves when using my X-Acto knife, which can avoid getting sweat on your paper and X-Acto accidents.
Puncture proof or leather?
like this

Don't think it matters as long as it holds the sweat in.
Same problem

Saw this on Twitter today, the artist said she designed
It using interlocking scales and joints, no glue or tape. Is this the beginning of a new age of papercraft?

Yuumei is fantastic! I've been following her for years! She said she'll talk to some of her business people and get a diy kit made up people will be able to buy for a puzzle for a lamp project.

Hey /po/, long time papercrafter here with a question for you folks. When I first discovered the hobby, this very site was my source for projects back when the board was first created. I'd since found other sites to follow, first Papercraft Museum, then Paperkraft.net, then Papercraft Square. Each was pretty much a blog that posted papercrafts of all skill levels and from everywhere in the world, but they all just up and stopped posting, in 2013, 2015, and now 2017, respectively. Anyone know of any other good sites of this nature?

Pic unrelated, just my Mask.

Technically both are designers' private blogs, but they regularly post links to papercraft designed by others, more often than posting their own work. Both are usually updated daily (though Ninjatoes sometimes posts les frequently). Papermau also tends to dig up some older models in addition to these just released.

Does anyone know a site with a designer who did a bunch of persona, and darksiders chibi models?
There were posted on paperkraft, the designer has a name like Hexxy, bloxxy
Wish I had more info, but its been about 6 years since I've been on it

LMAO! It actually works!!!
Printed it on 8.5 x 11 paper, cut it out and put the thing together with Hi Tack Acrylic tape XD
Why shouldn't it. The app has to be built to recognize a shitty picture.

I have already made the beaver and the Hello kitty...post a model from these c.ps and we can discuss and share

Is there anything we can do?

It's been close to 10 years since I've done any papercrafting. I was excited to see that nintendo papercraft still existed, but almost every link is dead and it seems like a majority of those awesome papercrafts are lost to time.

Is there anyway we can combine resouces to either track them down or upload / re host them as a community?

I'm not sure where else to turn and the nostalgia is killing me. I can't help but feel like I missed out on a lot of great models.
