    These are very sweet, I could picture them in a child’s nursery…well, with a “look but don’t touch” policy of course!

    seeing projects like this make me want to be little again. i didn’t have enough time experimenting with paper mache and origami as a kid!

    haha! I love it.
    I bought an origami book a few years back & started making in it. One was a dog that reminds me on the ones here, but these ones are much cooler.

    Have you seen the movie ‘Between The Fold’? It’s an incredible documentary on origami and the science behind it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1253565/

    Very cool! I have this strange, leather origami-type animal that I got from Design Indaba last year that you buy in the form of a cutout and put together yourself. It’s quite cool. Origami’s so wonderful, wish it wasn’t so difficult.

    The paper has 2 different colours on each side, it’s not two different sheets!

    • Reply Miss Moss Thursday 7 April, 2011 at 11:05 am

      i should have said that he glues them together, yes. (he uses the term MC’d which means Methyl Cellulose – a way of glueing paper)

      i merely wanted to explain why there were two colours.
