Whenever I talk about origami with my friends, they just think it's basically crumbling up paper and and tossing it aside. Even when I share my complex origami models.

Does anyone else have people/friends who underestimate origami/papercraft?

Pic related, the level om on at the moment

I'm pretty sure that most people who can't appreciate complex models think that it involves cutting or glueing different pieces together. In other words, they don't know what origami stands for and they confuse it with kirigami/papercraft.
>>
I don't stress about it, some people like and appreciate it, others do not. I just make stuff, and if anybody asks me about it, I offer it to them. Artistically inclined people will appreciate it more because they have an idea of the work that probably went into it.

Also, I love it when I say 'this is made from a single sheet of square paper', and they go 'no, seriously, how'd you do it', haha
>>
>>574268
Also, that is a really nice mantis Anon, you are right to be proud
>>
The easiest way to teach them how hard it is, is to teach them a model. Always start simple, because most people will have trouble with them. Someone once said "Failure is the best teacher." and boy will they learn that lesson fast.
>>
Tip dont tell friends everything..keep some stuff in your group chats..go to some origami meetings and get seen be seen hook up with some other mentally deranged folders

You should try incorporating the wire stand into the model's tail
>>
>>576097
That's a good idea. It could help keep the squiggliness of the tail
The whole thing keeps spreading back out. I just found methylcelluloce, so that might help the body too

In two days I'm supposed to demonstrate papercrafts to 13 and 15 year old kids. What easy models would you recommend, that are easy to build yet give a good impression of what papercrafting is capable of?

The ceiling cat here is a perfect example in my opinion. Only a few straight lines to cut and glue, but turns into a solid, impressively three-dimensional piece.

What do you recommend?

hey so i dont know shit but want to learn. is there any tutorials you can suggest for learning pepekura designer? i folded a few of the old halo 3 helmets back in the day so am familiar with the assembling process, but i want to start designing. thanks in advance!

>>576411
Pepakura is portable by itself. You can take official installer, unpack it with 7zip or some other archiver and you're done. You will need to enter serial number first time you run it, though.

New to this craftwork. I wanna do a Batman Arkham Knight helmet, so I started yesterday. This is my first attempt, I know now that glue sticks aren’t the best for pepakura. I even printed the folds for this, but that could be a regret.
Any advice?

yes they are but they are not available. the ones provided are from a different designer. if you look at them both side by side there are a lot of differences.

I started with the crane. It's a classic. It's easy to make, yet even after years of making it, I still find it challenging to make a perfect one.

Learn to make a square out of any scrap of paper, and you'll have entertainment at your fingertips in any situation.

According to legend, making a thousand of them will earn you a wish.
>>
>>571804
You must start noob, then, level 0.
And this does not mean the crane, that is still too complicated for someone your level.
Start with the complete basics, the essential, start noob:
The paper plane, the paper boat, the paper hat.

It may be too hard for beginners. I know that when I first started origami, the crane was difficult for me to fold - I could get to the bird base just fine, but the reverse fold always threw me off. I can't say for sure, though, because as always, it depends on the person.
>>
Well, first I would say to get familiar with the types of folds first, and then move on to easy origami models (plenty of tutorials on YouTube). To fold the majority of origami models, you'll need to know how to fold (at least) the preliminary base (or waterbomb base), maybe then moving onto the bird base.
