I really like folding with this paper. Luckily, we did not have to look far.

The Origami Forum

I used the copper – light brown paper, highly suitable for the lion. The paper tends to tear when there are too many layers, so I unfolded parts of the model more than other papers in order to fold the back legs and the mane properly. I had to paint both sides gold this timebut the paper does not take paint well, so I komwtsu to repeat it several times.

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.

Skip to main content. Here we had to use what we had, a blue thin paper. This paper has a wonderful texture, but it is not an easy task to fold and shape it.

Shaping was very easy since the paper tends to hold the shape very well, and the result is very nice. I used water-based varnish to enhance the texture and to strengthen the paper a bit, and it was still no easy task.


It was very challenging to fold liom lion with Japanese Foil, since it wears down easily, and it is very difficult to reverse the creases. The metallic side left sparkling marks on my fingers while folding, but still this side enables me to hold the shape well.

A short hieo into his flickr collections will immediately show you why we chose him. It is very difficult to make sinks or any tricky steps, and not easy to shape it nicely.

I do not like folding with this paper. There is no final verdict here.

I worked slowly, so I managed to fold it perfectly. It was a bit challenging to make sinks and un-sinks without tearing the paper, but I managed to do it.

The advantage is how easy it can be shaped, and how it holds this shape. The paper is very weak, and feels like tissue paper. Eyal Reuveni folded Hideo Komatsu’s lion from all 10 paper types we have thus far reviewed. Last touches of finishing were easy to make using my fingers to shape the mane. The edges might rip if not folded very carefully. This was, for me, the worst paper to work with, folding this complex lion.

Lines and paragraphs break automatically. It was very easy to shape the lion from this paper since it holds the shape very well. Folding such a complex model was no easy task: In contrast to our opinion, Onion Skin Paper scored low with Eyal.

It is best to use it when glued to another paper tissue, mostly. And we know there are better folders than us out there. I hardly ever fold from copy paper, besides test folding crease patterns. Do you think that would you ever make a video on how to go about tackling a crease patterm; maybe a few helpful hints or advice?

Still, it is not easy to fold a 3D animal from it. Like Tant, it was necessary to unfold the paper partially to go through the rough stages of forming the inside layers of the back legs and creating the mane. This paper is better for color change models than for one color models. Luckily, this particular paper has a better quality than the usual copy paper. Great creators share their diagrams with him hido publication to hear his opinion kkmatsu to fix problems he finds. He has folded numerous complex models, koamtsu several copies – be it from diagrams or CP.

This is one of my favourite papers and it is very good for animal folds, as the texture is highly suitable for that. Although he did create a few models, he prefers to focus on folding other people’s models, the more complex – the better. Choosing the right size, as well as the right treatment any paper can lead to awesome results! The finished lion is very delicate and light.
