Hey /po/
I'm a big Bionicle fan and I want to make a wearable Kanohi mask out of paper. I thought this might be a good place to start. Any advice?
If you don't know how to model it yourself and don't find a 3D model of the same thing to unfold, do a commission. - long explanation short.

Else, you can't do it with origami or anything, it has to be an actual modeled papercraft. And then you have to reinforce it with papermache or similar to wear it.
3d model it, then use pepakura to turn it into a papercraft
did you not try googling at all before this? If 4chan is a good place to start for you I don't know what to tell you. Maybe lurk more

Here a link

I've looked everywhere and can't find anything the artist is called Ingrid Siliakus she does some cool stuff but wondering if she had any templates or does she keep this stuff secret?

I knwo this is old, but i did a quick photoshop fix in case anyone wants to try it
Exacto knife with metal ruler, circles and round shapes are best done with scissors imo

Maybe /toy/ or /diy/.

I believe the idea of a single uncut square is more in line with working under a formal meter and rhyming scheme in poetry.

It's not that using multiple sheets, cuts, or non squares is lazy, it's that the constraints force us to get more creative.

Things like box pleating, 22.5 designs, circle packing and rivers may never have been made mainstream techniques if cuts and multiple sheets were universally accepted.

But now that all the math is out of the way, I do feel as though the pendulum should swing back a little in this artform.

I personally don't mind multiple sheets or non square sheets, and cuts, tears, and holes can be very artistic. But there is also a very important lesson to be learned by constraining yourself in any aspect of life.

There was a virtual YouTuber who made paper crafts. Japanese but English subtitles.

Nice find! I love papercraft as well as vtubers. Subscribed.
I checked out his streams, he is very nice and even tried to help me when I barely speak the language. the chat is also really nice and translates along. Please send love his way.

When I was younger I had a set that came with a bunch if origami paper and it was fun making shitty cranes and frogs. I want to get back into it again because Ive gotten into drawing and knitting and want to have more creative things to do so I can cut back on time I spend in front of the screen

Whats the best place to get high quality origami paper? Thank you.
Depends on the kind of paper you want to get, but generally https://www.origami-shop.com/ is pretty respected. If you just want basic 6 inch x 6 inch single side colored paper to fold, they have a pretty good 220 sheet pack here: https://www.origami-shop.com/en/paperorigami15220scrapbookingorigamishopcom-xml-2658_2387_737-619.html

Jeremy Shafer also frequently orders from this site.

Niggas really be having threads for years on this board! Wow
Maybe you can impress a girl with good enough Origami skills, but it's not a game changer, and you will still require enough social skill to pull it off.
Fuck off, tripfag.

Can you do a rich piana?
I loved the Dachshund. I hope I encounter it on a lawn I pass by someday.
Eh, sometimes. They're neat gifts to give to people, only have to spend time to make em instead of cash, which is useful for me when I am low on funds and I usually can't keep them all anyway since they just fill up boxes.
I usually take a picture of every model I make so I have a sort of archive and then I give em away when I feel like it.
When I started out I was doing a tonne of cranes in school and left them lying around in the classrooms. Some people were really curious who was leaving them there but one teacher actually just threw one in the trash as if it was just scrap paper >.>.
Gave one to a friend when he was in the hospital. He died so now I leave one on his grave when I visit.
Also used to make them for my ex but I dunno if he understood how much dedication they could require. I was only starting out but spent like 4 hrs on a millenium falcon, having only regular printer paper.

that made me both happy and sad. its funny how something so simple can mean so much to someone

Hi there, I'd like to start some crafting, but I don't know where to start.

I got my own printer now, so thats a start. I'm experienced in origami and orimotos and want to try something with cutting and glueing for a change. I'm very into video- and boardgames so i was hoping to get some recommendations about those.

Maybe there is something for Hollow Knight, Dark Souls, Undertale, Stardew Valley or something. I'm very into indie-titles, those are some of the more popular ones (except Dark Souls of course)

Any help would be apprechiated!

PO is so calm compared to everywhere else.

These are good crafts. I'm too lazy to make them, but I can tell they're good.

Ey /po/, one of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon version is Kartana. It looks like this. Can you make it in real life with origami, and if so, how?

Sun and Moon isn't new bruh
Based slow thread
It seems no one as truly gotten a “traditional” origami Kartana down even now but that’s basically an impossible task so I’m not too surprised, papercraft is good enough
I didn't even know this board existed until today. It's like traveling back in time. I can't imagine Kartana can be made with origami, though. Papercraft, yes, but origami? I doubt it.
Hey OP if your still here,do you have any other recommendations?
cool, an almost five year old thread. i wonder what OP is doing. Maybe he's married, settled down, has kids. or he's lurking in his mom's basement. We just dont know! I hope you are well, OP!! update us on your origami
