Eyal started to fold at the tender age of ten, discovering origami with Robert Harbin’s books. Despite the thickness of this paper, it is the best paper for the lion, as well as most of Komatsu’s models in general.

He could also pick a suitable paper size for each paper type, and konatsu and treat it as he thought fit. I usually use this paper only for color change models, when attaching it to other, usually handmade, papers. He has folded numerous complex models, often several copies – be it from diagrams or CP.

For many years he folded animals and insects from Montroll and Lang books. Eyal got highly devoted to the task of reviewing the papers we had already rated, and finished all lions in less than a week. Usually, I use this specific thin kraft paper mainly for complex insects, and not for animals. Name your model and the manufacturer will prepare the right paper for you.

I used water-based varnish to enhance the texture and to strengthen the paper a bit, and it was still no easy task. Here we had to use what we had, a blue thin paper. The finished lion looks and feel like a statue, and the shiny texture enhance the details. Today he lives in Shoham, Israel, in a house packed with thousands of models. Although he did create a few models, he prefers to focus on folding other people’s models, the more complex – the better. This is one of my favourite papers and it is very good for animal folds, as the texture is highly suitable for that.

It is best to use it when glued to another paper tissue, mostly. Lines and paragraphs break automatically. Lipn on, being exposed to many new creators through the internet, he fell deeper and deeper into the world of paper and complex origami.

Let us introduce Eyal Reuveni, an Israeli folder. I worked slowly, so I managed to fold it perfectly.

Still, it is not easy to fold a 3D animal from it. I think it is best for folding insects and super complex models, and not for animals such as this lion. The added layers of color made it a bit easier to shape.

He is one of the best technical folders in the world. In order to make the paper easier to work with, and to enhance the texture, I applied water-based acrylic varnish. Web page addresses and e-mail hidoe turn into links automatically. Then he was to conclude what he thought of each paper.

The edges might rip if not folded very carefully. Still, it is necessary to be very careful, since it might rip in the edges. I prefer a thicker Kraft paper for momatsu, but this one worked pretty good, too.

Shaping the lion was easy and the gideo model looks very nice although a brown color would be more suitable. There is no final verdict here.


The finished lion is very delicate and light. I had to paint both sides gold this timebut the paper does not take paint well, so I had to repeat it several times. It is very difficult to make sinks or any tricky steps, and not easy to shape it nicely.

We wanted to set only minimal restrictions, namely that the papers were to be reviewed by folding the same model from the different paper types. I had to partially unfold some steps in order to make close sinks doable. Some steps were quite difficult to fold, but for that reason I chose this size of paper.

The paper tends to tear when there are too many layers, so I unfolded parts of the model more than other papers in order to fold the back legs and the mane properly. The metallic side left sparkling marks on my fingers while folding, but still this side enables me to hold the shape well. It was very challenging to fold the lion with Japanese Foil, komwtsu it wears kokatsu easily, and it is very difficult to reverse the creases.

The texture of this particular paper is wonderful, and the paper enabled me to shape it perfectly, without using wet folding, MC or any other treatment. I do not like folding with this paper.

And we know there are better folders than us out there. Leave this field blank. Because there is whole new world of origami that would be accesable for me and others who do not know how to fold cp’s if you could help.

Do you think that would pion ever make a video on how to go about tackling a crease patterm; maybe a few helpful hints or advice?
