As a member of Origami USA, I get access to publications, diagrams and a community of folders world wide. It and JOAS are important communities for folders from Oz as we are so far (physically) from everywhere: Every year, OUSA decorate a Christmas Tree at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. members […]
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 […]
As custodians of this planet, we do a pretty lousy job overall at looking after it. We see apex predators as threats and demonise them for acting naturally in their own domain: In Australia, we employ shark nets which each year kill more OTHER things things than keep out sharks – time to think more […]
I stumbled across a “dollar fold” designed by Daniel Brown and decided to try it: An interesting exercise in sinking, point isolation and layer management, this charming squid looks fresh enough to cook.
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.
