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.

>but that program removes it
If you think that program removes the password, then do it, and repost the file without the password.
Mfw I hard crushed for a college girl who told me she was Slytherin within minutes of meeting her
I have that origami book (Harry Potter)

The English version?
Apparently the program doesn't remove the password because you haven't done it yet. See, you don't know everything.

Idk if ur still here. But I wanted to know how they make each eye wink individually
I havent bought one of those types, but from the one I have that blinks with both, I believe that the difference is that the eyelid layer (basically a semcircle) is split in two and has two different handles on the back
man, god bless you, this looks cool to try
Author stopped selling patterns because one of them was shared. I'll never get this "One file was shared, so i'll stop selling all files, so people who wanted to buy them cannot do this anymore" mentality...
Hi man! Which ones do you have?

I've been lurking this thread for the past few months and now it's Halloween time! I'm definitely going to make one of these masks, but how would one reinforce it? Do you guys use cardboard or cardstock and trace the patterns?
/b/ here. Never seen a 5 year old thread pretty cool. Like the paper! This has gotta be some kind of record right? What’s the oldest active thread? Cheers and happy Halloween /po/lite people.

Is papercraft as a hobby dying?
26 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
Do not base the hobby off the patronage of /po/. It has always been slow, and it will continue to be slow until the heat death of the universe.
It's been on a steady decline since 2013, look at Google search results for the word "papercraft" over time. I think a big reason for it's decline is the fact that new video game characters are almost impossible to make models of, as they are too detailed and difficult to convert into paper models. Super Smash Bros Brawl and Melee provided hundreds of fantastic models to convert into paper because of their trophies, but we don't have something like that these days.
I was thinking earlier on that /po/ is the only board not to have become completely fucked up but even then this thread is full of wojacks.

finished. But has i was expecting it failed, like this anon say >>599399 the model is really the most important part and since i just picked a random model it obvious have flaws. if someone want to do this use this model of torso >>598928, since doing full body is way harder. Anyway, it was fun to make, thanks for the good thread frens
It doesn't look that bad, but the model wasn't that great but i can't tell why, maybe should have added more sides to fold?
exactly, more fonds on big parts like torso and breast would be good. also i should have used a better type of paper instead of a4, but they are expensive and this was a bit project

Anyone got that old crappy template of (I think) Pleinair from Disgaea? Pretty sure it was mostly simple shapes and said "for /po/" in the corner. I'm trying out a workflow for un-unfolding papercraft where no model or pdo is available and it would make a perfect test case.

I'm getting into paper mache, is this the place to post about it? I would assume so but only saw origami.

Anyone into this and would like to share their creation/share tips/tricks
Yes, this would be the place to post about it. I personally encourage it, as it is a departure from the usual. I myself do not do paper mache and think you may not find many that do, but hope you do.

Ah good, I'll be sure to post some updates on my first project.
also interested, not really sure where to go either. i have a project idea but ive never done it before so still feeling everything out

I ended up going with horns, seemed easy enough. Just concentric circles. I used cardboard for the base, taped it all together then did 2 parts glue 1 part water and just kind of painted over the available outside and inside. The last few took more care because of the curve. It held together well the next day when I removed it to add another coat to keep shape.

And this is from today, same mixture on both sides of one of those grocery store coupon newspapers I keep getting in the mail. I read up on it and tearing is better for making sure it all connects better so I also tore off any edges before getting my strips. The plan next time is to make some "paper clay" which is broken down toilet paper and glue to get a sort of smoother finish and more accurately mold my shape.

How did Mr J.Garper Pass ?.I mean I know you can die of laziness and poisoning but God striking you down for book piracy seems a little out of character. .
He actually did a lot more for the genre as I actually started buying e books to make my self feel better than the hoarders on there .
I wish there was more to the story
Nope, no more.
