White Rhinoceros Hide paper

110 gsm

 

 

27.6"x27.6" (70x70 cm)

 


This paper was discovered and made ​​available for the first time for the origami community by Origami-shop, in late 2013

 

 

Qualities :

This paper has a great wrinkled texture imitating the skin of animals such as rhinoceros or elephantSmooth, 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 package them ourselves.
  • Important: Sheets with format 50x50 cm and 70x70 cm will be sent folded in fourths by us. Therefore the sheet contains creases, but of course the traces should not interfere in the final appearance of your model. By ordering this paper, you agree to receive sheets folded in fourths.

 

Choose 

this paper:

 

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

(like flowers and animals since there are many curves to be put in them)
To have an amazing texture adding to your folds
- To fold tesselations and modulars

- To use wet-folding Technique

- 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:

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 which not have too many overlays / Wetfolding for super 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.
