Double Dragon – Paper Wedding Anniversary

Posted by wonko on May 1, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy |

When asked by a friend of my son’s if were possible to fold something to celebrate their fist wedding anniversary, which coincidentally is the “Paper” anniversary, I thought why not: The couple are┬ádragon fans, so it seemed obvious to include something from that world. I looked around for something that would present in a shadow […]

Double Tissue

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2014 in blarg, paper |

Flushed with the success of MC on Ricepaper, I decided to try “Double Tissue” – a fine crisp strong medium that many origamists rave over. I found some bargain animal-print tissue whilst looking on a whim in a “Crazy Clarks” wrapping section ($1.50 for 10 sheets 50x70cm), then went to the newsagent and purchased a […]

Hideo Komatsu’s Owl

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2013 in bird |

You find wisdom and counsel is the most unexpected of places, people can be wise beyond their years and offer you more support and encourage than they realise. I was asked to fold an owl, simultaneously, for two completely different purposes. (1) A good mate wanted to give an Owl to someone who had helped […]

454: Unryushi Darkness Dragon 2

Posted by wonko on September 3, 2013 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy |

I was given a beautiful sheet of Unryushi tissue by a friend. The arrangement (in case YOU want to take part also) is if you give me nice paper, I will make you something out of it. I prepared the paper by Methyl Cellulosing it to a clean window: This make it crisp and strong, […]

446: Sunny’s Giraffe

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2013 in mammal, wtf |

Sunny’s birthday is coming up and she loves Giraffes: In browsing for a suitable model, I discovered a Tanteidan containing a Satoshi Kamiya giraffe that I had not folded, so it seems it was meant to be. I lke this model a lot – it is full of the essential giraffe features, economically uses the […]

445: Mother of Dragons

Posted by wonko on July 10, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy |

I was paper shopping, as you do (my daughter calls me a paper nerd) and stumbled across a hand-made sheet of blue embossed Lotka that reminded me of dragonscale: She who must be obeyed (SWMBO), an avid gamer and tamer of Dragons, had asked for a dragon so I put 2 and 2 together and […]

444: Wolf Spider

Posted by wonko on July 7, 2013 in creepy crawly, vehicle |

I have these lovely bits of Lotka and was looking for something to be my first fold with this new paper: I chose Brian Chan’s Wolf spider partly because I had not folded it before and partly because the “milk chocolate” fibrous nature of the paper reminded me of the natural colour and texture of […]

443: Gettin’ Crabby

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2013 in crustacean, wtf |

As a member of JOAS (Japanese Origami Society) a present arrives in the mail every now and then – the Tanteidan magazine. Although it is written in Japanese (and I can not read Japanese) there are lots of fun things to try, occasionally amazing models to try: Now I know I should be marking, but […]

At Loggerheads

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2013 in nature, reptile |

I have been a little down, sick and my hands are not working as well as they should be so needed something to boost my spirits: I took a sheet of 35x35cm Olive Tant and decided to try and re-make a model I have only ever achieved once, much much bigger. Logic would suggest, in […]
