Recently I got inspired by this guy who models their cosplays with cardboard and I got surprised by how good the round shapes ended up look like.
I only want to make a mask with round shapes but every tutorial I found uses straight strokes for the template and I want to know if I can find more information of how to do it the other way

Sorry i completely forgot about this thread, here you go

thank you!
The technical name for a shape that can be made from a flat plane via cutting, folding and bending but without stretching or compressing is a developable surface-


Cylinders, cubes, pyramids and cones are basic examples, and with computers extremely complex shapes can be segmented and unfolded to create patterns for 3-D objects.

Curved creasing/folding (see pic) is another option that can develop amazing shapes with minimal cutting and assembly work

What are cereal boxes made of? I know they're comprised of grayboard/chipboard but what do they print on? Is that white part part of the chipboard? Why does nobody sell this?
This is the same as VHS box sleeves, NES, SNES, N64 boxes. Yet nobody seems to actually know how they're made.
>What are cereal boxes made of?
Cardboard and ink
>nobody seems to actually know how they're made
Literally an episode of How It's Made about this subject.
Anyone try this?
Just attempting to make the thread a little relevant to the board.
Paper and board with that characteristic slick white finish used in packaging and high end magazines and catalogs where rich colors and crisp details in graphics and photos are important are clay coated

wait wtf
you can upload PDF files? I never knew that
i downloaded some stuff off of it...i miss it badly
AFAIK only /tg/ and /po/ have this power.
/lit/ might but I genuinely don't know, I've never tried. /tg/ is told to not upload copyrighted materials that will get the board in trouble, and instead uses a PDF sharing thread, but we have a lot of free to distribute/CC licensed/etc materials that people upload, from game manuals to CYOAs. /po/ has it for obvious reasons, print formatting etc.
/sci/ too. Albeit useless on that board at this point.

How do you make your figures have more consistency? I have thought about resin but I don't know if it is a good option for paper. What method do you use?

Do u have instructions for the wyvern/dragon or is it custom?

It is from this video

I already told you once that any language is welcome in here. Learn to use Google translate.
Thats not really true. If you speak latinamerican spanish, people from Spain and other countries can understand you, unless you make the effort to use every local word you can think of, or the other persone doesnt "want" to understand you,

Behold, anons.
Some esoteric Russian origami and papercrafts.
Dated 2005, but I believe this is the fourth edition. Original is from 90s.
This particular one is for children, but I know I have a more "advanced" one laying around somewhere.

We tend to use paper in a very functional manner in Russia, so it's interesting to see some of the more "practical" designs (from napkin-folding patterns to making a paper cup for sunflower seeds / measuring grains), to making drinking vessels.

Here is one of the designs for a Christmas ornament - "fae".

Lots of "playable" papercrafts too - sailboats you can blow on to hover over your table, floating boats to send in streams, and many flying toys.

Paper-folding in Russia has a rich history stemming from the use of birch bark folded into various containers and cooking implements.
Because of the physics of boiling water absorbing heat, these were used for cooking soups and sterilizing stream water without any damage to the birch bark.

Ive done some basic stuff and i want to learn more advanced stuff in origami as a project. What books are good for that?
4 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
this so much.
I didn't have good experience with this book. The theory is nice, teaching techniques and essential ideas in progressively more complex models.
But a lot of the models, in my experience, even simpler ones can be too disappointing/challenging. I mean this book is supposedly written for beginners.
I just checked gilad page, reviewing from memory:
1. squirrel - the example photo and the one in diagram is different, so your result won't look the same as Jun Maekawa's
2. box - "locks" and bullshit don't work. I honestly have no idea how to make this properly without glue
3. spiral shell - good luck making everything aligned
4. giraffe - I really dislike this one, dunno, the fact you fold the back and hide it behind really annoys me
5. helmet - good luck making this stand, even gilad couldn't do it, fuck this model seriously
I think I dropped the book a few models after this. I kept hitting problems that I blame on subpar models.
I decided just to fold stuffs I find interesting from /po/. Not following Maekawa's curriculum. I'm much happier now. I just don't think the book is good recommendation for beginners.
John Montroll's Teach Yourself Origami's first half has all of the essential models they used to teach in schools.
Try to follow this plan to become a successful folder . 1 .Sonobe .2 . Kusudama .3 tessellation .These are good because very repetitive folds practice makes foolproof and you can use glue for assembly
Then 4 .Beetle . 5 .Fish . 6 .Spider .7 scorpion
8 . Butterfly two colours .
9 .Bee two colours
Then try some simple characters .
After that you should be familiar enough with diagrams and precrease to attempt more complex models such as birds dragons .
Start with Alex Jones the Great Reset. You will be doing a lot of folding for the NWO.
wrong board, scipo
