1 January 2014

This origami dragon comes from the book Origami Omnibus, an essential book to have in an origami book collection.

The paper that I used is tant, which is too thick for this model, but great for other ones.

During his trip to Asia, my dad had a layover at the Narita Airport. One of the terminals has several origami displays. These are the pictures he sent me.

Where have you seen good origami displays?

Origami Songbirds

16 September 2013

My cousin and I made some origami birds. He had some fun taking pictures of our creations. His is the cream-colored bird that looks more falcon-like. I tried to make mine (the white one with a hint of blue) look like an eagle, butĀ  it ended up looking more like an origami seagull.

To make these birds, we used the “songbird” diagram from Robert J. Lang’s book, The Complete Book of Origami.
