Origami Goat Instructions [Peterpaul Forcher]

Origami Goat Instructions [Peterpaul Forcher]


Hello I’m Tavin from Tavin’s origami
instructions and today I’ll show you how to fold one of those neat little goats
here and best you use little firmer paper like this but ordinary origami
paper 15 centimeters or larger like this one will also work just fine I find
you get the best results if you use a little stronger paper
this has been an a4 sheet that I cut down to a square and I really like this
model. Mr. Forcher’s wife was so nice to allow me to show this to you so let’s
get right at it so the first thing you need to do is to divide one side into
thirds there are several ways to go about this
I will now place the paper in an S curve so all three layers that are on top are
equal lengths and it takes some wiggling around and then I will pinch mark those
and you can also just use a ruler that will be more precise and easier but I
wanted to show you one method without any tools and then we will fold both
diagonals you will need them later for orientation so first this direction than
the other make sure those first creases are
precise because this is a little advanced model so maybe not something
for beginners. Be patient and be ready to work a little on it so then we have our
marks for the third here and that is that iswhere our crease will go through and the
next one will also go through the other pinch mark but also it is just the edge
to the main diagonal and to tansfer those thirds now we will fold in the
first part and then fold diagonally and just fold around it just like this. And then we fold the edge
to the middle and that’s that and as you probably can see in the diagram we will
need to fold in the corners so just the white parts disappear. very neatly and
one part will be one corner will be the tail of the goat – and the tail of the
goat – I’m sorry and for that we have folded the exact so folding this a
little back; about maybe a finger half a finger wide and then we will need to do
two squash folds, to the side. And so you can see better, I’ll zoom in in the
camera and as well on the diagram and we fold this diagonal from the top of the
newly folded edge centers to the corner of the model on both sides that will
make the squash fold more precise if you’re an advanced folder you can just
do that from hand without the preparation and the another preparation
fold we need to unfold everything and then fold the diagonal of the tip
in both directions again so the goat is symmetrical and this is now one of those
cases where firmer paper comes in handy because the creases are easier to
reverse and are more strict those hinge functions we are using right now by
pressing on the side will be easier with firmer paper but I thought it would be
better if the paper is two-colored so I’m stuck with this now. okay
that came out quite okay. you can see a little white, you shouldn’t, but that won’t
matter – it will be hidden later on now for the next part we will fold this
into half, the a complete thing, and then we will mark
halfway through and we will need to make a vally-fold at each quarter and then
next to the middle line 1/8 distance we will make a mountain-fold. this is a little
mind-boggling but just bear with me here so we have this pinch fold and we fold
the pinch fold unto the half of the whole model. so that will give us the
quarter and then we fold the edge with a tail to that pinch mark also the
pinch mark could also be a whole crease actually doesn’t matter much. And then we
will turn the whole thing around and use the edges of the folds to fold the edge
towards the pinch mark here this edge goes to the pinch mark now that is our
newly folded edge and also on the other side here goes there okay nice and neat
and if you turn it around you now see the white parts are the parts where the
zig zag is coming towards yourself and I’ll just stop this for a second
to explain a little so exactly like shown in the diagram the quarters are
now here in blue and their belly folds and in red the mountain folds are 1/8 of
the green line and which is the half of the whole model distance from the
halfway point and that’s basically all so let’s continue with a waterbomb base
on the other side that is actually a quite simple step and if you don’t know
how to do a waterbomb base I have several videos I’ll link one of them in
the description where I show the steps one in detail
it’s basically just folding two diagonals and then we not only fold
those two diagonals as precise as possible again we turn it around and
fold a mountain fold exactly where those two diagonals now meet which luckily is
also the halfway point so you can just align it with the edge and then we
collapse it again if that was too fast I recommend you might not try this video
because it’s very basic maneuver so now we fold the water bomb base diagonally
like this in both directions and that needs some pressure to fold through we
will need those creases later on and if you have done this if you have pushed
nice and hard through all the layers of paper unfold the whole thing but I
promise you it hadn’t been for nothing we need those creases later and now for
something we could describe as two squash folds to the sides we fold the
paper upwards into a quarter and then into the exactly other direction the
eighth of the whole length of the thing like this and then we take the hidden
corner here and fold along the wide pink line that is a 45-degree angle and we
fold edge to edge and so it’s just the diagonal of the square here and we do
this on the other side too I’ll zoom in for that to show you in more detail so
we have this here fold it in half and then we fold this in a 45-degree angle
we can align it with the crease or on the left hand side with a raw edge of
the whole model this is now a little I’m sure sharp but bear with me we’ll do it
all again and most of it will basically just
fold itself complicated thing is to know where to do the creases and where to
push once they are there basically everything just falls into place so you
take this to the left and that to the right and everything else just get into
place and you push it down so again you fold towards the middle and then you
fold what is left over what you’re currently holding into your in your hand
downwards and that’s a lot of layers so push nice and hard and then you take
whatever is hidden in the zigzag and folded here so it aligns with the crease
we’ve previously made and it is a 45 degree angle to the raw edge at the
bottom and here we just fold the transition between the two colors that
is why I chose to ill color paper it does have no effect but it’s easier to
show and then we flatten the whole thing and this is this dual hinge movement
really nice trick Peterpaul came up with to create – four legs actually for
our little goat and now we will do a crimp and fold the whole thing in half
at the same time I’ve worried that’s much easier and what we just needed to
do we will just reinforce those creases we just previously made I promise you
you will need them later it is now one of those moments and we
make the mountain folds fold the whole thing in half and then half again so now
we have half a square basically at an angle and something with the tail
basically and because I didn’t do it all perfectly I’ll have to do some cleaning
up here and again I recommend you use different paper than what I just did now
what we will do is basically like a bird base in the top and for that we need to
do those creases that I right now show at the diagram and to be able to do that
we’ll just make a pocket up there and fold from
here to there now and the pocket we just did was basically just along the creases
that were already there it’s similar to an inside reverse fold a
little bit and you see again I need to clean up the folds a little bit because
it was so many layers something good moved a little bit but now we have done
those layers what we will do now is we will flip it like a sock towards the
left in a bit first push here and then it will pop out and this here goes back
in and that’s a little piece of paper we will use for the goatee later on
and now and what we will do is basically like a petal fold in in the bird base so
you fold this backwards and this part also and the crease in between just
creates itself when you close it like this so you all you have to make sure is
that the angles of the pre creases are nice and clean and you have to reverse
the two at the top corner here so you reverse those creases basically and
that’s it okay so Mountain fold there basically
and mountain fold here and now we also dug this flap in which we used in the
beginning to create the orthogonal crease a vertical crease exactly and now
what we will do is create the ears the horns of the goat and also the goatee
the goatee is that little corner here the raw corner of the paper and you just
do an inside reverse fold and to get it out here and then do to rabbit ears
the revit years go just as far as the paper will allow you to go and there’s
symmetrical basic rabbit ears and the raw edge of the top will just align with
a of the neck of the goat that is pretty straightforward it goes like this
and also because we want the symmetrical vote on the other side the very same
steps you fold the edge dividers the angle bisector to be precise and it was
like this and like that and there is one additional crease in this bottom part
like that okay so now for the Hat if you’re familiar with the traditional
rabbit I have a video on that too you will find this much easier what you do
is you wrap around the big neck and divide it in half and make the head
pivot downwards in the same manner and make sure those creases are pretty
tightly in the middle and 45 degree and then Tibbets just like I demonstrated
right now okay and instead of pivoting outwards like I
just did we will reverse the whole thing and make it go inward and this is a
little tricky and here would humor paper you will have better results because
it’s easier to reverse the creases so now I have to make sure that the creases
are reverse all the way and go in like this otherwise the neck will be too long
or the Hat will just pop up if I down reverse the crease and if I don’t do it
all the way and do it proper you get an awfully long neck so that is where a few
more paper would be really neat but yep that’s it just make sure that the crease
we worked all the way and for one last touch you tuck in the bottom like this
into the other pocket and you do an inside reverse fold here at an angle to
create the tail and that’s it you got your own little
goat I know this model is a little more challenging than what I usually show sew
down hesitate to ask for help in the comments I’ll try to do my best and I’d
love your feedback is this what you want more complicated more difficult models
to do if so please let me know in the comments and also if you’d rather I’d
stay with more easy stuff by the way if you’re new please subscribe and get
notified whenever I upload something new or check out this video that is
suggested right now. see you next time bye bye

  1. You're the first person I hear you could contact PeterPaul's wife…I asked several German folders how to, but everyone says it is almost impossible you will receive an answer.. I love all PeterPaul's models very much…you made a great video (y)

  2. Was able to follow until around 12:00, but then I completly lost it, it went to fast, too much flipping the model around and technical terms for my eyes and brains. πŸ˜‰

    I had a bad feeling about this from the start, I was afraid I wouldn't finish that though I do Origami since I was a child. Well I guess I forgot a lot since then… πŸ™

    All in all a great Origami video, but definitively not for beginners….

  3. Excellent video.
    I really like the verbal instructions while seeing the folds. Helps greatly with understanding each move.
    Top notch video and the difficulty level is just right for the average person.
    I'm going to make a few for my son to use for BB gun targets. Perfect and thank you!

  4. Mine looked completely different I don’t know what went wrong, it was really hard to see what you were doing , you said this was advanced but it was way harder than that, mine looks awful and it barely stands up, the tail area looks fine but the head and neck and front legs look aweful, please can you help me?

  5. Your instructions are so thorough and clear. I like that you show the corresponding diagram in the upper right corner. Very helpful. Thanks so much.
