Hello there everbody, and welcome to my channel.
I am Tadashi Mori and in this video here I’ll show all the steps I took to make this origami
Angel. From start to finish it took me about two
days to complete the origami. Now I’ll show you why it took so long, so,
let’s start. The first step to make a good origami is choosing
the paper. I am using here a washi paper, and it is a
really strong paper but it’s too soft so it doesn’t hold the shape really well, so I’ll
apply some acrylic paint. I’ll paint only up to this point because obviously
we already have a square and we just need this part here. After one day all the paint will get dry, but you cannot pull it because the paper is
glued on the glass. So, I’ll spray some water wait a few seconds for the paper to absorve the water and then carefully remove the paper. But still, the paper should get dry in a flat
surface, so, clean the table and stretch the paper over the table again. If the paper is not sticking to the glass, apply more water. Wait the paper to get dry again, but this time I’ll use the hair dryer to make the process
faster. Now see if you can remove the paper, and if it’s still sticking too strongly, repeat the last step until you can remove it. In this case, I already could peel the dry paper You’ll see that one side of the paper is really shiny because of the acrylic paint. For my origami, this will be the back side, so you won’t be able to see it too much.
Now I just have to cut the paper And make a big square. and to do that, I’ll use here
a big set square and carefully cut the paper. Now we are ready to start folding. Make some coffee… if you like coffee. Now I’ll make the origami following the crease
pattern. If you don’t know what’s a crease pattern:
In this square you can see all the folds that should be in the origami, and this is one
origami I designed last year. First I’ll make all the pre-creases, this will
help me make the folds more precisely, thus making the origami looks better in the end. After half an hour I could make all the folds, and the paper should look like this. At this point, the paper and the crease pattern looks the same, so, let’s continue. Now I have to make the folds in the correct order and direction And finally, I finished making all the folds from the crease pattern. We spent one hour folding the paper and you can see the base: The skirt, the arms, the head and the wings. Now let’s work on the details. And after three hours, the origami is done, but we still have one problem.
The origami looks ok right now As you can see you can just leave it here
on the table and it will stay put. But it is made of paper so, over time, it
will get humidity and it may fall. That’s why we need a good base, just to hold
it in this position. So, I cut a small piece of wood, then I cut
a small piece of wire and placed in a way that you couldn’t see it inside the origami.
Shaped the tip so it doesn’t rip the paper. Now I’ll straighten the wire, correct the
size. Drill a small hole in the wood.
Now fix the wire in the hole. See if the size is ok, and if everything is
ok, remove the wire once again, and to make it even harder to see the wire, I’ll paint
it in white with the acrylic paint. It will also help avoiding oxidation. And finally, the model is done. And that’s it, the origami is done.
