For many years he folded animals and insects from Montroll and Lang books. Still, the wrinkled texture of the paper might be good for a furry animal model. Shaping was very easy since the paper tends to hold the shape very well, and the result is very nice.

Because there is whole new world of origami that would be bideo for me and others who do not know how to fold cp’s if you could help. Luckily, we did not have to look far. Our reviews are all about getting to know different paper types and with hands-on experience reviewing their strengths and best areas for use.

I think it is best for folding insects and super complex models, and not for animals such as this lion. This was, for me, the worst paper to work komtasu, folding this complex lion.

I had to partially unfold some steps komafsu order to make close sinks doable. It is necessary to fold very carefully and perfectly if you want to avoid the metallic foil side to be seen in the final model.


Leave this field blank. I do not like folding with this paper. Let us introduce Eyal Reuveni, an Israeli folder. There is no final verdict here. More information about text formats.

I prefer a thicker Kraft paper for animals, but this one worked pretty good, too. Despite the thickness of this paper, it is the best paper for the lion, as well as most of Komatsu’s models in general. I really like folding from this paper, in spite of its thickness grams!! Still, it is necessary to be very careful, since it might rip in the edges.

This paper is better for color change models than for one color models.

I really like folding with this paper. In order to make the paper easier to work with, and to enhance the texture, I applied water-based acrylic varnish. I used water-based varnish to enhance the texture and to strengthen komasu paper a bit, and it was still no easy task. Do you think that would you ever make a video on how to go about tackling a crease patterm; maybe a few helpful hints or advice? We found the right candidate in our home country, in Israel.

Lines and paragraphs break automatically. Although he did create a few models, he prefers kojatsu focus on folding other people’s models, the more complex – the better.

Still, it is not easy to fold a 3D animal from it. The added layers of color made it a bit easier to shape. Last touches of finishing were easy to make using my fingers to shape the mane. It is very difficult to make sinks or any tricky steps, and not easy to shape it nicely.


Some steps were quite difficult to fold, but for that reason I chose this size of paper. Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.

And we know there are better folders than us out there. He could also pick ko,atsu suitable paper size for each paper type, and paint and treat it as he thought fit.

Great creators share their diagrams with him before publication to hear his opinion and to fix problems he finds.

Name your model and the manufacturer will prepare the right paper for you. I used the copper – light brown paper, highly suitable for the lion. Eyal started to fold at the tender age of ten, discovering origami with Robert Harbin’s books. Shaping the lion was easy and the final model looks very nice although a brown color would be more suitable. Usually, I use this specific thin kraft paper mainly for complex insects, and not for animals.
