French Marble paper

110 gsm


This paper was discovered and made ​​available for the first time for the origami community by Origami-shop, on 13 September 2013.

 

Choose the size of your sheet from the options above (next to the Button "Buy now"):

- 35x35 cm (13.8"x13.8") = $1.50  

- 50x50 cm (19.7"x19.7") = $3.50

 

Qualities :

This paper has a great a marble-like texture. Rather thick (110 gsm) and water resistant, it is ideal to capture organic shapes (like flowers and animals since there are many curves to be put in them), for wet-folding as well as tesselations

  • These items are proprietary products to our shop because we cut them into squares and conditioning them ourselves.
  • Important: Sheets with format 50x50 cm and 70x70 cm will be sent folded by us. It therefore inevitably contain creases but of course, the traces will not interfere in the final appearance of your model. By ordering this paper, you agree to receive sheets folded.

24x24 cm (9.5"x9.5") for simple and intermediate models

- 35x35 cm (13.8"x13.8") with dry fold for intermediate to complex models 

- 50x50 cm (19.7"x19.7") 70x70 cm (27.5"x27.5") with dry fold even with super complex models

 
Dry-folding for tesselations, modulars and models without too much layers or without too much shaping. 

 

Wet-folding for models which need a lot of shape
For more details, read 
Gilad Aharoni's article

 

1) Technic #1 (easiest):

Fold (dry) the model as far as possible. When the folds become too difficult, wet the flaps and creases with a damp sponge or water spray.


2) Technic #2:

Moisten the entire sheet with a damp sponge or a water spray. Fold your model quickly before it dries. Dry with a hair dryer or outdoors holding sometimes parts of the model with clothespins. This technique requires that you know perfectly the folding sequences to fold the model as quickly as possible.
