Grainy Paper

116 gsm

 

Size

28"x28" (71.1x71.1 cm)

 


This paper was discovered and made ​​available for the first time for the origami community by Origami-shop, on 23 September 2013.

 

Qualities :

This paper has a grainy and speckled texture. 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 larger than 14 inch will be sent folded by us in to 4ths. Therefore the sheet will contain creases. By ordering this paper, you agree to receive sheets folded.

 

Choose 

this paper:

 

- To give roundness, 3D effects and capture more organic shapes 

(like animals since there are many curves to be put in them)
- To fold tesselations and modulars

- To use wet-folding Technique                                                                     

 

Do not choose

this paper:

 

- To fold complex models with many layers like insects for example unless you have mastered the wet-folding technique or choose a large sheet (>50x50 cm)

- For children (the paper is too thick to be folded with small hands)

                                      

 

How to use

this paper:

 

Size of the sheet:

28"x28" (71.1x71.1 cm) with dry fold even with 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 sometimes holding parts of the model with clothespins. This technique requires that you know perfectly the folding sequences to fold the model as quickly as possible.
