FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.


What paper should I use?

Holy shit, is this the oldest thread on the site?
I was just entering college when thread first popped up.

It has nothing to do with the mods. It hasn't reached any of its limits yet.

S.V. announced the end of Fanbox and of the sharing of his work. Some Singapore fuck is selling his work on Shopee. Best as I could gather through Google Translate, S.V. has decided to stop sharing his work. To add insult to injury he posted pics of what 'would' have been his next release.

I understand you, but there are different parts in /po/. Sure, there are beggars who ask for model you can buy for a $1, for example, but there are also people who share figures from dead websites. There are also black sheeps among designers - several years ago i bought several models, made them and gifted them. Last week i decided to make them again, but couldn't find files on HDD. I got to designer site, logged into my account - just to find my order history empty! Designer told me that my license to files expired and if i want them, i should buy them again! There was nothing about "expiring" when i bought models! Luckily, i found that i made a backup of them...
Or the origami thread - there are people sharing out-of-print books of designers who passed away and there are people who beg for books released a month ago.
So, /po/ as a whole is not cancer, but part of it sure is.
Mods, this entire whiney thread has got to go.
Please delete this thread to make room for a little more productive thread.
Brushing it under the carpet does not make things better, and changes nothing.

This is a relevant discussion, and very related to the hobby.

If you feel uneasy about this thread, you may have to look inside and ask yourself why you want it to disappear.
always crying, asking the Mods to erase what bothers you, do you remember the paper dildo? you need it now
Does this person post about his process? I'd like to learn from him and others who do anime figure papercraft

Anyone tried doing paper puppets like this? Where would one get started designing something like this?

Anyone has Usa Convention 2020?
Origami USA, on their online shop.

This already have been shared in other threads
This one is really cool. It looks like this one would be pretty easy for you to diagram. Would be great if you could at least share this one with us.
Thank you for making this. It must have taken a lot of work to design models like these and I'll be looking forward to at least doing the simpler fox. I really appreciate the way you did the instructions as well, I feel it's easier to understand and make things. Thank you.

Only available in Japan right now... Does anyone have this yet???

Nice find, thank you!! :)

They're exactly the same quality. In the link just "save image as", and you get the same file

OP here. Decided to fuck around with flower designs. Surprisingly fun. Might make a bunch and shove them in a mason jar, I dunno.
How did you make it?
If you are an European get metylan normal, it's wallpaper glue and has MC in it. Some people also use PVA. You'll need a surface like glass or plexiglass

There's a million guides out there. Just google 'tissue paper flower' but basically

>stack a few layers of rectangular tissue paper
>fold up accordion style
>fasten at middle (staple, tie, etc)
>trim ends into petal shape
>unfold ends so you have what looks like a double-ended paper fan
>gently pull up, separate and shape tissue paper layers into flower shape
>(optional) trim middle tissue with scissors for more authentic flower shape

These palm-sized flowers were made with four layers of 8x16cm tissue paper.
The bigger your sheets, the more layers you can use.

The number (and size) of accordion folds dictates "fullness." For example, the red and yellow flower was made with relatively fewer folds, resulting in bigger petals, but also more space.

well here's the final jar full. Probably a better way to display them but I'm feeling lazy. Something to put on the shelf.

Not a bad little project. Probably makes a great gift for your girlfriend or whatever.

Does anyone have these two Kamen Rider helms from HD Studio that they can share? The links are dead everywhere I have found any. Thanks for any help.
Found them, but the Kamen Rider Kabuto helmet (right pic) is password protected and there was no text file with password in the folder... Anyone know it? I'll post them as soon as I can figure that out, organize, and reupload.
What exactly is password protected? Archive itself or PDO file?
Actually it is the pdf.
So, when you try to open PDF, it asks for password? You are out of luck there - latest PDF files have strong encryption. Would take weeks to find password, unless the PDF is old (2015 or earlier).

Started this because I couldn't post it in OP Thread, and it looks like it could be getting close to post limit, idk...

That is awesome!... The must have models from Youlingke imo, are Yae Sakura, Mandarin Dress Ver from Honkai Impact 3rd and Megumi Kato, Swimsuit Ver from Saenai Heroine No Sodatekata.

There's also these models of Laffey Oath ver. that for the life of me still cant find any kind of scans
This is a japanese designer I know from Twitter. Never releases the crafts, only does them for him/herself, so forget it. You won't get anything out of there.
You mean Chinese
Not yet, of either, if I had scans I would post.

I added some hot origami books to my folder, and I wanted to share it here because this board was my only hope when looking for a particular Tanteidan magazine.

I will grant you access as soon as I can.
Happy folding :)
