Today I’m talking about 4 origami cool origami plants, animals and objects. Please note that these are all interesting in my opinion, and you may think something different.
1. Origami Elk,
Designer: Robert J Lang
Folder: Robert J Lang
The origami elk is a beautiful model, but is not at all an easy model to fold. It starts out with the making very precise folds. The book that you can find the instructions in is called Origami Design Secrets. The book is full of secrets for designing your own origami models, and is not meant for instructions. If you wish to purchase the book, you can do so here.
Difficulty level: Complex
2. Origami Cat
Designer: Katsuta Kyohei
This cat is very lifelike, with the correct paper, it can be folded to look somewhat identical to a someones pet cat. It isn’t terribly difficult to fold but isn’t for beginners. If you wish to fold it, instructions can be found in Origami Tanteidan Magazine #124. PDF’s are available here.
Difficulty Level: High Intermediate
3. Double Triangle Sawtooth.
Designer: Miguel Blanco Munoz
Folder: Beth Johnson
Tessellations are very difficult to fold, and take a lot of patience. I haven’t folded many myself, mainly because they take hours to just fold. What I find quite cool is that tessellation make you fold a base then fold certain parts using the base that you folded. Instructions can be found here.
4. Origami Pineapple
This model is what is called a modular. Modular origami usually consist of at least 100 modular pieces. Modular origami are pretty easy to fold, but, you must have a lot of time. Each piece will take a little while, but is quite worth it. In the end, you’ll be able to assemble each piece of origami then, creating a cool model. Instructions are from YouTube, and can be found above.
