1033: Ducks in a row

Ducks and Drakes usually are different – apart from gender, the drake is usually the pretty one, a quite common convention in the bird world:

Each model is folded from a sheet of the same paper, one the reverse of the other to create the different plumage patterns.

A lovely fold sequence is really efficient, so entirely achievable using 15cm origami paper (I have so much of this, and rarely use it). I decided on some teal-ish Yuzen, and the results are lovely.

I know I need to fold this more – the volume of body and head are lovely and take gentle treatment that I am only a little way across so far, but I can see how it works. The central flap either becomes a curled tail feather or the feet of the standing duck – I must experiment more with the postures of both to make them more natural.

Designed by Shiri Daniel, the diagrams are sort of clear, but have Israeli annotations, meaning I have to guess at some of the shaping – a fun exercise none the less.
