Prefdce
Traditional "origami" suggestS expressing

oneself creatively through the an of folding


paper, and folding paper exclusively-no
cutting or pasting. Such origami can be
pleasing in its simplicity and esthetically
beautiful, but I prefer to allow myself the
freedom to be fully creative. That's why,
as in my previous books, I encourage you
not to limit yourselves but to snive for a
more natural look to your finished project.
This comes into play even more here,
with the addition of color to Onish ofT your

jungle animal creations. You can glue on


extra layers or bits of colored paper, use
marking pens or water colors, or even give

your fonn a light coat or spray paint A


finished origami need not look exactly like
mose illustrations or fOnTIS you see hereor in orner origami books. You can work
wonders creatively. It's up to you to bring
your original origami creations to life-with
all its abundant variety.

use for rraditional

origami is very thin, keeps a crease well,

and folds flat. You can use plai n white paper,


solid-color paper, or wrapp ing paper with a
design only on one side. Be aware, though,
that some kinds of paper stretch slighdy,
either in length or in width, wh ile others

tear easily. Packets of papers especially


for use in origami (IS by 15 centimeters
square, or a bit under 6 by 6 inches) are
available in a variety of colors from craft
and hobby shops.
Regular typing paper may be too heavy
to allow for the many tight folds needed in
creating more complex, traditional, origami

G lue: Use a good, easy-flowing bUl nor

loose paper glue, but use it sparingly. Don't


soak the paper as pai nts and coloring do
not hold well to dried glue. This shouldn't
be a problem, however, as most gluing is

done between inner layers. A nat toothpick


makes a good applicatOr.
T echnique: Fold wim care. Position the
paper, especially at the comers, precisely,
and see that edges line up before creasing

a fold. Once you are sure of the fold, use a


fmgemail to make a clean, flat crease. Don't
get discouraged with your first efforts. In
time, what your mind can create, your

figures, but it should be fine for the larger

Bilse rolds
Base folds are basic forms that do nO[ in themselves p roduce origami, but serve as a basis,
or jumping-oIT po int, for a number o f creative origami figures, some quite com plex. As
when beginn ing other crafrs, learn ing to fold th ese base folds is not the most exciting part
of origami. They are, however, easy to do, and will help you wi th you r techn ique. They
also quickly become rote, so much so that you can do many using different-colored papers
while you are watching television or you r min d is elsewhere. With co mpleted base folds
handy, if you want w qu ickly wo rk u p a fo rm or are s ud denly inspired with an idea for
an Origi nal, u nique figure, you can select an app ropria le base fold and sw irrly bring a new
creation to life.
