Folder and Origami artists are familiar with foil paper or tissue-foil.
This paper holds creases perfectly.
Being extremely thin and strong, it works well when there are a lot of layers. It is therefore particularly well-suited to complex folds. What’s more, it ages well thanks to its metallic base that holds creases for a long time.
Lastly, it has two advantages that set it apart:
1) It allows users to create paper suitable for any two-coloured model using tissue paper glue on its faces.
2) Shaping. Folding with tissue foil is like playing with modelling clay, creating more of a sculpting feel than folding. It is easy to ‘fill out’ the model, and any fine details added hold well.
