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?

I am happy with what was shared, you can take your miserable energy elsewhere
Of course you're happy because you got something for nothing without giving anything back. That makes you a sorry ass freeloader like the rest of the people in here. That's why I don't give you people shit anymore.
>take your miserable energy elsewhere
My energy is as positive as it gets, so I'm in the right place.

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.

Youlingke and many other anime papercraft designers sell printed copies on Taobao. Taobao is based in China and ships internationally but is very complicated to buy from without using a proxy, Taobao does not accept Paypal and the entire website is in mandarin. Superbuy is by far the best proxy in my opinion they respond quickly and are very good at talking to the seller to sort out any issues.

In order to buy from Taobao you need to:

1. Make a Taobao account

You can't view anything on Taobao without having an account, you need to sign upusing your phone number.

2. Make a Superbuy account

You can sign up with your email.

Here are links to the shops on Taobao that sell papercrafts:

For the 2nd last shop link, are you able to get the pdo instructions if you use a shipping agent?

Thanks bros. Just went and spent $150 before shipping on crafts I'll probably end up never touching. Time to buy a shelf.

Those eyes are the thing of bloody nightmares!!!
Nice toes
Thanks, my mom made me those

cool things to make with a ton of paper (like 50-100 sheets?) maybe something modular or related, i was thinking senbazuru but that would take literally forever (i have a few months, not trying to fold at every available opportunity)
make something everyday to talk about at dinner time
Write a novel
Do you have lego? Or duplo? If so, then you can build a mold of a cool building or some brutalist sculpture, then stuff it with not too soggy paper brushed with salty wheatpaste (salt to prevent fungus, not sure if it actually works), and leave in a dry place. Else ifvyou have wax, use wax coated folded paper to make the mold.
The mold has to be open at one end to dry.

The shoe coom will be unrelated to this, you have my promise

Also Bookbinders use a PVA/Methylcellulose mix. Ratio is usually cited as a 10/1/3 mix PVA/MC/Water. 3/1 mix of PVA to Water if you don't use methylcellulose. There's some sublety to getting everything to mix correctly, there's some decent you-tube videos about it.
Honestly i just saw some dude on boobtoobe doing 1:1 weight ratio. Can't say i did extensive research on the matter.
interesting tho only ones i can find rn are food grade or arabian gum mix powder.

But is drinking coffee good for you? Good news: The case for coffee is stronger than ever. Study after study indicates you could be getting more from your favorite morning beverage than you thought: Coffee is chock full of substances that may help guard against conditions more common in women, including Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease. Caffeine is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about coffee. But coffee also contains antioxidants and other active substances that may reduce internal inflammation and protect against disease, say nutrition experts from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

>attack formation
This is cool.
>I think if one of us was exceptionally neurodivergent they could get it done in 5 days, folding 200 a day for roughly 12 hours a day, not including stringing.

I did it once on a personal challenge. A thousand cranes is feasible in five days.
Let's see: Can you fold 20 cranes in an hour? If you do, a ten hour binge can produce 200. By friday, you got a thousand cranes.

Put a good podcast or watch videos on your portable while doing it. Be sure your elbows rest on the table: it cuts your risks of tendinitis.
How many of easy colour are in each strand of 100? Or are they strands of 200?
The packet I'm using goes 40 cranes, 20 colors per strand. So you end with 25 strands

8 MB max.
Do you compress to somehow "hide" the encryption?
Because after any decent encryption algorithm, a compression would probably increase the size.

Me, paperdog is a good boy.
I think the paper person went into paper prison
I’ve never visited 4chan.org before, but now I’m wondering why I didn’t come here sooner. I can learn origami and look at boners. How could things get better than that?
