934: Mikiller觅晨’s Modular Dragon

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2018 in dinosaur, fantasy |

Assignment time at school is fairly boring, for the most part, for a teacher. Students have lots to do, you need to be available to help on demand but there is a fair bit of sitting around waiting to be needed: I had found a bunch of PDF’s explaining briefly how to fold parts of […]

933: David Brill’s “Robin”

Posted by wonko on August 11, 2018 in bird |

I have been a fan of David Brill’s designs ever since I read his book “Brilliant Origami”. Such a lovely touch, breathing life into paper: This Robin is delightful – I saw hand-drawn diagrams on David’s website and then professionally drawn diagrams in the latest Tanteidan Magazine and knew I needed to try it. I […]

932: Clever Girl

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2018 in dinosaur |

In a classic scene from the first Jurassic Park movie, a hunter realises he has just been surrounded by hungry, angry velociraptors, and utters the words “clever girl” before being ripped to shreds: This delightful mode is really simple to fold, and belongs to that stable of models whose proportions are perfect, detail is sufficient, […]

931: Sipho Mabona’s Fugu

Posted by wonko on July 29, 2018 in fish |

I have had this model on my “to do” list for ages – I had shied away from it because of what I perceived was a brutal precreasing sequence and impossible collapse: That said, with a little large scale and some accurate pre-forming, the laying of the corrugations was fairly straightforward – all based on […]

930: Ground Control to Major Tom …

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2018 in humanoid, paper, scifi |

…take your protein pills and put your helmet on. I have waited an age to fold this model – I was waiting on finding some large format duo paper. When visiting IKEA, I came upon delicious 70cm wide rolls of duo Kraft paper (black on natural and white on natural), and bought a bunch of […]

927: It’s All About the Base

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2018 in humanoid, machine, vehicle |

One approach to paper folding starts with a “base” – a form with flaps and general morphology that suits an end goal. A well-designed base is a thing of beauty, and a flexible tool. This base, a mutated fish base has really useful properties as demonstrated by these two wildly different folds, both designed by […]

926: Tiger, tiger, burning bright

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2018 in animal, mammal |

There are lots of origami tigers – few actually look like tigers – you know, the stripey thing. This model is radically different: Using a HUGE square (I hand-made a large piece of double tissue – black and yellow), you start with a birdbase, then torture the paper for 2 days to create a pleated […]

925: Crouching Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2018 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

Origami dragons and wyverns seem to be a bit of a “holy grail”, with the more complex gaining almost mythic reputations for breaking folders spirits when they attempt them: I came upon the diagrams for this charming model shared on fakebook, and it took a moment to hunt down the designer – Shaku on Flickr.

922: Modular Kangaroo

Posted by wonko on March 10, 2018 in animal, mammal, paper |

I am still on the lookout for a nice travel fold – something I can leave as a stealthy “thankyou” to the hosts of places we will stay overseas: This is Seiji Nishikawa’s Kangaroo – an amazing 3 part modular that I decided to try folding using hand-made paper. The model is in 3 parts […]

920: Koala – A Possible Travel Fold

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2018 in animal, mammal, nature |

As I am about to embark on more world travel (see travelblog), I am on the lookout for a fold I can leave in each of the places we stay. Oddly, it is something I do, often hiding little Australiana figures in out of the way places,  to hopefully provide delightful surprises for subsequent guests: […]
