Fernando Gilgado is a legendary character folder, I have made many of his models, this one is a charmer:
from one sheet of paper, you get 6 pages, a hard cover, arms, legs, a smile and eyes peeping over the top – neat
So, as I mark furiously (having run out of the ability to put it off any longer), my procrastigami takes hold and I started bending something. I also wanted to try out my new self-healing craft mat (the green griddy thing) and have discovered that folding from an iPad or other tablet is better than a book because of the pinch-zooming possible to help old eyes see details of diagrams.
You take a square, divide it into eights
And wrestle the left hand side into a base
then rinse and repeat on the right hand side to form the base.
Then carefully you tease two flaps down and thin them …
Then you tease flaps up to look something like this prior to modelling
Then after a little shaping we get this…
This was WTF#18 – Justin Naschin correctly guessed it (finally) – good work
Pity it is not self-standing, I think I can re-work the legs a little so it is less flimsy but I think this needs to be folded bigger so I can get a better facial expression
