tomoko fuse is my favorite
It's pretty, looks pretty firm as well due to the compact use of paper. I wonder what it would feel like and how it's weight is.

Additive origami would be a nice name for it as well.

Maybe you remember this from the origami gifts thread, but last year for a Secret Santa thing I gave these models to somebody as a gift. Now Christmas is approaching again and I want to be ready in time with some really impressive models. I’ve purchased for this occasion a 40×40 cm sheet of Origami Shop red tissue foil (so not the actual tissue foil made with foil, but it still has its properties), a 45×45 sheet of green sandwich paper (the ‘real’ tissue foil) and a 48×48 sheet of dark green Elephant Hide. I would like to make, among others, the following models:
-Eric Joisel’s Dwarf (probably from green homemade tissue foil, not the one from the Shop)
-Robert Lang’s Murex (from white tissue foil made by myself)
-some kind of impressive dragon. I’m not sure what to choose between Jo Nakashima’s Devil Dragon, Kade Chan’s Fiery Dragon 2.0 or Tadashi Mori’s Darkness Dragon. I definitely want it to be complex but not Ancient or Western Dragon-tier.
What other suggestions do you guys have? I want to give about five or six models in total, I want to keep them reasonably complex or sophisticated-looking, I have access to plenty of PDF’s of origami books and, of course, YouTube tutorials, and I don’t need to exclusively use the papers I’ve bought (although the red tissue foil could be reserved for the dragon), also being able to make small sheets of tissue foil at home (which I wouldn't prefer because they are very uncomfortable to fold with).

Dude, don't make a dumbed down rip-off of the Ancient Dragon, just make the Ancient Dragon.

make a Ryujin.
On a more serious note, how about Roman Diaz's Hippocampus? It's kinda pretty but quirky too.
where do you get your paper? dont know where to get large square sheets for the complex folds, i really want to do tessellations, specifically, the hydrangeas, i like youre clover. i was able to do the rose tessellation with just office paper but never got past three by three
Origami Shop, I mentioned it in the OP. If you’re asking about the paper of the models in the picture, they’re all coloured printer paper, except for the dog which is homemade tissue foil.
really love the one on the left

How do I make a turret for my paper tank
Did you make that from a tutorial on YouTube? If so, could you link it? I think that was my favorite model years ago and I wanna fold some more.
Nice E-25 bro...

Models and tips for a beginer?
>drawing on the paper
This hurts me on an extremely deep level.
1. Buy patterned paper with pretty colours and fold with it. If you don't have any, white printer paper is a good substitute.
2. Do not hesitate to draw on the paper! Make the model yours, it will be beautiful! I recommend permanent whiteboard markers. Draw your lines two or three times to set the colour in. I also suggest coloured pencils. Generally, make sure to include at least two colours in a model.
3. Googly eyes are a must if you want your models to look professional.
4. Origami elitists and other jerks will tell you to make sharp, accurate creases. Ignore that — the model will look nice either way, and you shouldn’t waste so much time on that stuff. It often won’t even make a difference if you start witha perfect square or not — A4/letter sheets are okay too!
5. The same people would insist that '''''''real origami''''''' uses no cuts. As before, ignore them — there are some really nice origami spiders and crabs whose legs are made this way, try them!
6. For learning new models, nothing beats origami.com, which has good instructions in clear and polished English, quality step-by-step animations and a variety of fun models, many of which are inspired by the best culture in the world, the Japanese culture.
7. If books are more your thing, I heartily recommend the one in the picture. You can find a shining review of it here: goo dot gl slash 1Ggdrc.
8. And finally, if you prefer video as a form of instruction, the best origami YouTube channels are in Spanish, but that’s not a big issue, because just seeing the paper is enough to understand what to do. Just search ‘como hacer origami [...]’ and an array of quality tutorials will be at your fingertips.
With all that said, I hope I gave you enough information to get yourself started and much more! And remember, if you have difficulties, /po/ is a helpful and active place to ask, and your question will be answered within minutes. Happy folding! :^)

I want you guys to print out part of this thread and turn it into origami.

You might be wondering why you would make this boring thread into origami.
Well that's because this isn't just some random thread.
This is going to be the oldest thread on all of 4chan!

Have fun.

Hey, I have the files for pic related. I printed them out on regular printer paper (8.5inX11in), but it didn't fit the figure since it was too small of course. How can I resize the file so it can fit a 6 inch figure like pic related?
take a picture of this picture with your iPhone 3, transfer to Google Drive, download, open in MSPAINT, print from there
Get a wide format printer (they're pretty cheap these days). Epson makes some pretty good ones. I have a WF 7610 and can print max 13 x 19 and scans 11x17. Great for papercraft and comics.
I've taken some A4 paper crafts and blown them up to 11x17.

Otherwise, in print settings just scale up.
Likewise, you can always just scale down in the print settings.

Hello /po/.

This may be a kind of a weird thread here, but I think that if anyone can help me, it is you guys.

I am an entomologist, and I need a reliable way to make beetle cards, just like the one pictured here. These cards are used to mount really small specimens, and are used in three sizes, ranging from 5x9mm to 10x20mm.

I thought about using punches or paper cutting dies, but they can't be made with these little round corners. My currently idea is to cut it with a guillotine, but I have not found a way to round these corners (radius of around 0.5mm).

Can you guys help me?

Thank you very much, and sorry for being kinda off-topic.

Make a die out of a stronger material like wood or plastic and stack your blanks up. Then clamp that shit down really tight near the corner and sand it with some really fine sandpaper to match the blanks on top and bottom. Otherwise you could use a mini plane for woodworking to follow the blanks, but sandpaper is way cheaper. That's how you would do a real stack though. Clamp them and wood plane them with a mini plane on a shallow angle and a new blade. Good luck op

Thank you both, these are both great ideas. I will try it out. I don’t know anything about papercraft or origami, so sorry for the unrelated topic. I thought it would be at least somewhat related.

Have you looked at corner rounders from scrapbooking craft shops?

Here's a photo of a cheap one purchased from a China based eBay merchant sent postage free for a couple of dollars to Canada.
This thread still has a birthday hat and I want to preserve that fact.
.My face when i come on /po/ and an image of one of my specimens is on the board....
Anyway British Entofag here,
I buy my cards from the Czech Republic, the one pictured is from a site called Paradox, even after postage i think they are affordable, high quality cards at standardised sizes.

Considering The amount of time spent preparing specimens, its not really worth spending all that extra time trying to save a few pence

Can we have a thread for sexy papercrafts?

Posting a few pics to spark interest, but I sadly never found the files for them.

I'm not really too experienced with these kind of things and feelings, but I can just tell you this much from what I have been through:
A slave to things with no value is not a slave, as he doesn't have a master nor chains of speak of, In comparison, a slave to the material will have to cut his own wrist to free himself.
If you have lost passion in your hobby, just give it a rest or leave it behind, just move on something else, there is no wrong in doing that and searching for something else, if you have lost interest in your collection, there is nothing wrong with leaving it.

Lived a charmed life or practiced Buddhist?

The passion is gone because my energies are allocated to the valueless pursuits. I'm at my worst working at a job I don't care about, for people I don't know, for money I won't see. It's very demoralizing. I'm at my best when designing, building or talking about arts. There's nothing else I'd rather be doing. Even spending time on /po/ gives a small boost of dopamine.

Then, I look at the collection and models I want to build and design... And well...

Your perspective of chain's is insightful, though. I'll have to think on it over the weekend.

Could you post the model please? Its amazing!
No, her top and skirt are separate parts, I have this model in my file but I've never built her. Very sexy though.
I have this Kagami, but not built.
Not sure where /po/ falls on lolis, but I've got a bikini Kobato (Hagenai) on file that's anatomically accurate and cast off.
Same goes for the upgraded version of whatshisname's life sized mannequin.
Understandably I haven't built either [spoiler]because paper pussies[/spoiler]. Though my existing mannequin is in rather poor shape and in need of an overhaul.

What is it about this model that makes it a Jew?
I've folded the snail before, wasn't that difficult
the hebrew instructions were annoying tho
if you can't, then won't it be a great challenge ? :)
english instructions? i don't think i understand the diagram
it's on youtube

>live in a wet and cold place
>also gets hot when the heaters are on

>blu tack either looks solid and not squishy anymore
>put them up again

Is there anything better than this without damaging the walls?

I'm pretty sure I'll never run out for the rest of my life now.
I learned a good trick from organizing small, unprofessional art shows- get velcro strips. Get those big bulk ones online that you have to cut yourself, and assign one side for the wall and another side for your posters and other things you wanna hang. Cut out small squares and put them in the corners of what you wanna hang. Usually, it comes with adhesive on the back, protected by peel-off plastic. Velcro strips are pretty sturdy, too. They can hold my canvas paintings on the wall no problem.
Painter's tape in loops
Blu Tack soaks into the paper over time and ruins the edges whenever I use it.

Have you tried those big wooden clip style hangers? Not quite a frame and easy to swap stuff out.

>Bugbait's Imperial Bastion
Keep in mind that there are a number of pieces with off sided measurements. ex: the top floor has 4 outcroppings that should be of similar measurement each but it can be clearly seen that this is not the case, you even have mismatched angles on said outcroppings.

use with caution
More Bugbait this time a Fortress of Retribution
again be wary of measurements
It'll be alright.
I posted this awhile back and saw that the link was gone, so here it is again- plenty of paper models for fantasy war-gaming:
