A simple fold, unequalled as a way of protecting a fruit cake from extended baking – the outer layer is 35cm square kraft paper, inner is 25cm greaseproof paper, they fit snugly in the tins. Later they will protect the maturing cake as it regularly bathes in rum. Read more…
…yes, I know I am behind, but I have been busy and my brain is fairly broken. As part of the cleanse I took a 35cm sheet of washi and decided to try Brian Chan’s Super-complex “Fiddler Crab” model, never entertaining the notion that I would achieve the model, but rather just to fold for […]
People I work with know my OCD tendencies. When it was casually suggested that I might consider folding a Nativity scene for the end of year celebrations, it was a forgone conclusion that I would: The assembled figures (each nearly 30cm tall) form quite a striking display – hopefully one that works for the display […]
So the challenge to render a more feminine figure, seated, as if tending something was on: Using a variation of the generic judaian I managed to change the head, add knees and change the posture so sitting is suggested.
So, I needed some furniture, and thought of a feed trough, but had to invent one: Folded from a smallish square, this has trough and some rather nice legs, but does not look very comfortable.
So the next challenge was to render a babe, in swaddling clothes: Using principles garnered from an adult fold, I sort of MacGuivered a larger-proportion head, wrapped the body and presto.
…now when you want to fold someone from ancient Jerusalem, the options are few and far between. I stumbled across a design, again by Max Hulme, that will, with modification, do nicely: My generic Judaian is wrangled from a 50cm square of thick Kraft paper, and ends up being about 25cm tall all up.
Cruising around the internet, as one does, I stumbled across a thumbnail graphic of a diagram that appears somewhere else and sort of just worked it out: This is loosely based on an angel design by Max Hulme.
It is a well known fact, in households that own a cat, that when there is a box, your cat will, at some time, be in that box: It has taken me a while to get around to perfecting this fold – it is designed for a larger sheet but I managed to achieve it […]
Yes, I know I am behind. Work is busy right now, but never fear faithful reader, I will catch up again soon. Oh, and can someone please remind me next time I suggest I will try a 365 Origami challenge that folding NEW models, one a day, is just too punishing. Seriously. Please TELL me […]
