Not so long ago i found the almost perfect origami paper, well at least in my opinion. It's a thin rice paper paper and it has almost everything i want, the only downside is that it only comes in plain white.

I want to find a coloring technique that :
-resists water (for MC shaping)
-resists multiple multiple creases
-doesn't alter the paper physical properties (thickness, strength, crispiness, etc.)

Bonus point if it doesn't bleach under sun exposure and if it can be use to color only one side of the paper.

So come here and share your different coloring techniques, maybe together we can find the almost perfect one !

Gluing a sheet of tissue/unryu/other thin paper :
If you start with an already thin paper use MethylCelulosis to bond the two sheets together. If your base paper is thicker (tant or elephant hide for example) or metallized you can use a spraycan glue.
+really resistant to creasing (as long as you glued the things properly)
+color only one side of the paper
+water resistant
+adds strength to the paper
+/- resistance to sun exposure depends on the paper you chose. Usually the sun resistance of tissue paper is pretty bad.
-adds thickness
-can make reversing creases mor difficult

I've never tried this technique with thicker paper (60g/sm and above) but i heard some people like the texture it gives to the paper. I find this techniques works best by doing double tissue paper or sandwich paper.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Here are the techniques i've never tested but would like to try :

Watercolor (probably mixed with the MC). This should not change the physical properties of the paper and resists creases with no problem. However it will very likely be absolutely shitty for water and sun resistance so I don't know how i should go about final shaping with MC. Maybe using something else for the final shaping like vinylic glue would do the trick.

Mixing some dye or dry pigments with the MC. I guess it's pretty much what they do to color unryu you find in art store except that they probably mix the dye/pigments in the paper pulp. I think this could be the almost perfect coloring technique (hard to color only one side) but i have no idea on what dye/pigments i should use. And since this shit can be pretty expensive i'm open to any advice.

That's it for me, If you have any advice/question or if you want to share your experience with us don't hesitate to post anons !
MC is made with water, do you know another solution or alternative to or with this product?
There are other sizing agent you can use, for example i once tried corn starch, it was too concentrated and so it turned my paper into large potato chips. But the starch was still diluted in water so you still need to use water resistant colors. I guess you could also use vinylic glue, maybe diluted in water but i don't think this will be any better than MC.

All old papercraft forums are dying and almos all links there are dead for more than 2 years and after my hard drive died i decided that i'll share everything that i could recover from it also i urge you to share your collections so they won't dissapear like mine did https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vTOwUI78y3D0k63uTxC7-G5bArKQP0Sr

At least post a list of the file names so we can try to track them down and get them from people who aren't huge faggots like you.
This thread needs to live a little longer.

>a collage?

Yeah, that's kind of a teenager bedroom thing. I'd just like something tasteful to break up the drabness and monotony.

One time I put a bunch of maps up on my walls. It looked cool and people would come over and think it looked fucking crazy.

I was thinking more like one origami shape to make 100 of and put up in a kind of grid like pic related.

This is just what I was about to ask, I'm glad someone made this thread.
I have been thinking about something like pic related but in origami obviously.

I've never made any ori worthy of mention but I think it'd be a great idea for decoration.

Does anyone have any idea where to find some good ships for a D&D game? This is the best I've found and it's OK but I'd like a little variety. Everything is hidden on 404'd old forums and galleries that are dead and shit.

Anyone have the Instructions to this Papercraft?! Thank You.
You can find it here.
And Here.

Hey /po/, does anyone have templates for Ponyo papercraft models? I found this on image search and it looks so nice and cute, but I can't find instructions for them :(. It would be great if someone can find them... or instructions for an equally good or related model. Thank you.

>Have you watched the movie?
I haven't yet! I'll have to make a point to do so next time I need to just sit down and relax, everything by Studio Ghibli I've seen so far has been quite good.

Nice work! Your next one should be /pol/ themed in honor of the origins of this thread ;-)
Thank you!
You do that! Truth be told I'm really bad at getting around to watching stuff myself, guess that's why I'm so clueless about a lot popular culture stuff.
Next thing I work on will probably something that, by some reasonable fraction, fires my imagination and passion as the cause for this project did. Happens on occasion. Not into the pol stuff though.

Congratulations anon
may you have good smiles and fortunes

Im still not done, gotta finish up with bondo and since im a perfectionist ill take some more time, then gotta paint it
oh god, the smell
How do you achieve the bronze or golden
colour without sprays or acrylics?
Looks amazing

Is there a definitive book/site that has all the animals that can be done in origami up to now?
I need it for a project I'm working on.
I almost forgot.
I need them to use only one square sheet for the complete animal.
Thanks a lot. This is just what I was looking for.

These are really hard, though.
Here's an easy origami site, if this is what you need.


Hey, I wanna make a mask like this but I'm new to mask making and maybe some of you could recommend me something like a material or a forum or something, I would be really thankful!
Is this the wrong channel?
Where should I ask?
Not the wrong board, per se, but the slowest board. Incredibly, Incredibly slow. Try here for what you want >>545554
I see

I literally have to reverse engineer a fold from this base....i have other photos in a sequence ...see in comments
Theres a series of diagrams but i believe thats a standard milestone point

Anyone have any good teapot papercraft?

I am having a tea party birthday for my daughter and would like to make some papercraft teapot table centerpieces and fill them with wildflowers.

thanks /po/lygon /po/achers


These may be good

(The dodecahedron needed glue because the paper got all soft; I needed tweezers with the cube, but the crane I can do with my fingers.)
My record is I think about 15mm assembled size for a working flapping bird and around 20mm for a crane. I don’t use tweezers or special equipment, so I’m limited to what my fingers are capable of.
I should probably not that the type of flapping bird I learned to do isn’t like yours there. I learned a much simpler model vaguely resembling and dove or pajarita.
This was seriously a legitimate gift to a coworker this past Christmas, :)

I figure it might be a cool idea to have a thread dedicated to all things math and science related to papercraft and origami.

Feel free to share anything inherently sciency or mathematical about our shared hobbies, and even include science inspired patterns and models!

To kick us off we have the (pic related) origami-inspired solar panels that one day might be on a satellite.

There is a fun theorem, the "fold and cut" theorem.

Take an ideal sheet of paper, fold it as you wish so it lies flat at the end of the fold and then cut all the layers allong the same straight line. You will obtain at least two parts, unfold them and look at the shape you obtained.

The fold and cut theorem states that using this procedure you can obtain every shape you want providing it has polygonal borders. You can even obtain something which is not convex, connected or simply connected. You can find some crease patterns on the internet for different fold and cuts designs. I once made one for a dick and a svastika (welcome to 4chan), i'll post them if i can find them on my computer.

The proof of this theorem is, however, not fun at all.
I like that theorem! Unfortunately I don't like the exposition of any of the Demaines' work. :(
any interesting application?
The obvious application is that you have a constructive algorithm for making any polygon you want.
Didn't Lang do something similar with a space telescope?
