Having this idea, we started our search for a master folder, one with enough patience to fold the same model ten times. The finished lion is very delicate and light. Because there is whole new world of origami that would be accesable for me and others who do not know how to fold cp’s if you could help.

It is very difficult to make sinks or any tricky steps, and not easy to shape it nicely. Later on, being exposed to many new creators through the internet, he fell deeper and deeper into the world of paper and complex origami. Still, it is not easy to fold a 3D animal from it.

I prefer a thicker Kraft paper for animals, but this one worked pretty good, too. It was a bit challenging kommatsu make sinks and un-sinks without tearing the paper, but I managed to do it. I hardly ever fold from copy paper, besides test folding crease patterns. Great creators share their diagrams with him before publication to hear his opinion and to fix problems he finds.


For many years he folded animals and insects from Montroll and Lang books. Luckily, this particular paper has a better quality than the usual copy paper.

The added layers of color made it a bit easier to shape. Although he did create a few models, he lio to focus on folding other people’s models, the more complex – the better. Luckily, we did not have to look far. Shaping was very easy since the paper tends to hold the shape very well, and the result is very nice.

He could also pick a suitable paper size for each paper type, and paint and treat it as he thought fit. Still, the wrinkled texture of the paper might be good for a furry animal model.

Our reviews are all about getting to know different paper types and with hands-on experience komtsu their strengths and best areas for use. And we know there are better folders than us out there.

The advantage is how easy it can be shaped, and how it holds this shape. We wanted to set only minimal restrictions, namely that the papers were to be reviewed by folding the same model from the different paper types. Today he lives in Shoham, Israel, in a house packed with thousands of models.

This is my first time folding from this expensive, high quality paper. Last touches of finishing were easy to make using my fingers to shape the mane.

Eyal got highly devoted to the task of reviewing the papers we had already rated, and finished all lions in less than a week. I worked slowly, so I managed to fold it perfectly.
