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.
