Leave this field blank. Still, it is necessary to be very careful, since it might rip in the edges. The added layers of color made it a bit easier to shape. The texture of this particular paper is wonderful, and the paper enabled me to shape it perfectly, without using wet folding, MC or lioon other treatment.

I usually use this paper only for color change models, when attaching it to other, usually handmade, papers. Shaping the finished model was easily done using a thin wooden role or the tip komastu a painter’s paintbrush, and, like with Elephant Hide, without any special treatment to the paper. The edges might rip if not folded very carefully.

Because of that, folding the lion with Tant was much more fun than most papers. Since this particular brand is so thin, I used a smaller square, which resulted with a well standing lion, without the legs spreading aside. He is one of the best technical folders in the world. The folder was free to choose which model he’d review the papers with. Here we had to use what we had, a blue thin paper. I think it is best for folding insects and super complex models, and not for animals such as this lion.


This is one of my favourite papers and it is very good for animal folds, as the texture kommatsu highly suitable for that. I really like folding from this paper, in spite of its thickness grams!! He has folded numerous complex models, often several copies – be it from diagrams or CP.

This paper has a wonderful texture, but it is not an easy task to fold and shape it. Let us introduce Eyal Reuveni, an Israeli folder. A crease pattern for the lion is available on Hideo Komatsu’s site: This was, for me, the worst paper to work with, folding this complex lion.

We wanted to set only minimal restrictions, namely that the papers were to be reviewed by folding the same model from the different paper types.


Although he did create a few models, he prefers to focus on folding other people’s models, the more complex – the better. Usually, I use this specific thin kraft paper mainly for complex insects, and not for animals.

Name your model and the manufacturer will prepare the right paper for you. Despite all these problems, the final lion looks amazing, although a bit weak and delicate, and the texture gives it a more realistic look.

It was a bit challenging to make sinks and un-sinks without tearing the paper, but I managed to do it. He could also pick a suitable paper size for each paper type, and paint and treat it komztsu he thought fit.

Paper Review Special: A Third Opinion

It is necessary to fold very carefully and perfectly if you want to avoid the metallic foil side to be seen in the final model. Shaping the lion was easy and the final model looks very nice although a brown color would be more suitable.

Great creators share their diagrams with him before publication to hear his opinion and to fix problems he finds. Looking for challenges, he started to decipher crease patterns in order to fold the most complicated models. Because there is whole new world of origami that would be accesable for me and others who do not know how to fold cp’s if you could help.
