Designed recently and soon I hope to be included in a book so I can purchase the diagrams, I stumbled across a video tutorial and had to have a go. Used as WTF#6, I first folded it in white, then decided to give my newly purchased VOG paper a go.
I had a huge piece of burgundy/purple paper, rough texture on both sides and decided to use it for this model – so glad I did. The texture looks a little like craggy elephant skin, the paper holds it’s form and was a delight to fold.
I am in awe of this model, and with only a couple of supportive bits of double sided tape to keep some of the seams from spreading, it is free standing and very sturdy – a masterpiece of design that is the very essence of an elephant.
