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?

dont ask for that kind of stuff!!! you'll go to god damn jail!!!
Henry Pham made a book with many origami projects but the shipping cost to Europe is just too high (book + shipping ≈ €50). Wish he made an ebook instead.
He has videos for all the models in the book. The diagrams in the book leave something to be desired in some cases too, as they dont accurately illustrate what to do. Examples are the steps in folding Moltres's head and collapsing Vulpix and Ninetales. Just stick with the vids. You're better off
You should try incorporating the wire stand into the model's tail

Let's fold together. I am folding models from this book for fun. Probably in order. Come join in, ask for help if needed, and help out if you can!

And once I walked through a golden valley that led to shadowy groves and ruins, and ended in a
mighty wall green with antique vines, and pierced by a little gate of bronze.
Many times I walked through that valley, and longer and longer would I pause in the spectral
half-light where the giant trees squirmed and twisted grotesquely, and the grey ground stretched
damply from trunk to trunk, sometimes disclosing the mould-stained stones of buried temples.
And always the goal of my fancies was the mighty vine-grown wall with the little gate of bronze
After awhile, as the days of waking became less and less bearable from their greyness and
sameness, I would often drift in opiate peace through the valley and the shadowy groves, and
wonder how I might seize them for my eternal dwelling-place, so that I need no more crawl back
to a dull world stript of interest and new colours. And as I looked upon the little gate in the mighty
wall, I felt that beyond it lay a dream-country from which, once it was entered, there would be no
So each night in sleep I strove to find the hidden latch of the gate in the ivied antique wall, though

are you lost
Any chance someone could help me with step 58 of this cockroach? The fold on the bottom right of the step is straightforward, but I don't know what it is indicating with the other (interior?) fold. I can post pictures of what I've got so far, or the previous steps, if need be.

I said if I came up with anything new I'd share it with you all.

I'm still focusing on drawing, but at the moment I am waiting on books, and these are related to what I want to draw in the future anyway.

I've been focusing on minimalism, and have been trying to come up with a couple.

I decided not to post on the old thread. I don't really like having to slog through petty arguments and people being rude to one another just to find the one or two people who are actually saying anything civil and productive.

I don't know if I'll share diagrams for any of the models I make next Any fun I had sharing has been spoiled by greedy spoild people. I always ask for people to post their finished products, but so far have only ever seen one. Doesn't feel like I'm getting anything back especially for a community that seems so eagar to have every diagram possible.

Anyway, this will probably serve as an update thread for people who don't follow my Flickr.

Here's a minimalist gray fox

If what you're doing is bisecting the angles then that inner most angle would be 11.25 exactly degrees. arctan(1/5) which is the ration of the right triangle gives around 11.31 degrees. This is not a perfect fifth of the length. See pic related.

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.
