It is a commonly held belief that Goldfish have a short-lived memory: I have no idea if this is true, but suspect it is complete bunk.
Perusing my copy of Tanteidan Magazine #163, I came across a cute 2-part model that I thought I should try: Using orange for the fish and blue for the waves seemed to make sense at the time.
Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.
PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.
In catch-up mode, this is Eduardo Clement’s “Pez”: A delightful fish fold that is designed for paper that is the same colour both sides. A charming fold from his book Papiroflexia. relevant because we recently spent time on the waters of Hervey Bay (yes, we did see whales, but yeah)
It was late, I was tired and I must admit to going to bed before folding yesterday. Full week, new levels of fatigue: I found these diagrams on Pinterest – seems they are test diagrams (oops, sorry) but I love the shape and model structure.
Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]
What’s that Flipper? Timmy has fallen out of his boat and is surrounded by sharks? You get the coastguard and I will get the anti-shark spray: An irrational tale of a Dolphin and his stupid pet human. I do not know about you but I grew up on cheesy American telly – Flipper, Brady Bunch, […]
Few origami masters did more for modern origami than Yoshizawa Sensei: With delightfully few folds, his models evoke shapes, creatures and personalities.
There is a mystical beast called a Narwal – the unicorn of the sea: I am lead to believe this is a real critter, and their nose horn seems (at least from photos I fond on Google) to be impractically long but there you go – evolution is an odd natural force.
