Origami is a fantastic art form that guarantees hours of fun
and enjoyment, not to mention a great way to challenge yourself
and build your creativity. However many beginners come across
trouble in 2 main areas:
1. Following the instructions (especially when the creations
you wish to fold become more complex)
2. Finding enough information in the form of patterns and
directions so that you don't become bored!
I know this because I found the exact same problems! As a
result I developed an Origami resource that would actually solve
the 'Origami Problems' I know people want answered to make life
easier for everyone who wants to enjoy this amazing art.
Here are a few samples of some secrets you might not know
about origami and the process of it's learning.
- Every line and every shading on an Origami diagram has a
specific meaning (that most people don't know) that assists in
the understanding of the fold required for that diagram. Some of
these include grey shades black shades, dotted lines straight
lines, forward arrows reverse arrows and crossed arrows.
- Every Origami structure is made up only of a certain set of
folds that is common to every other diagram. ie there are
techniques you can learn to assist you no matter what it is your
folding. Some of these folds include the sink fold, the wet fold,
the reverse fold and the inverted fold.
- There is a certain order in which to learn folds bases and
finally full designs that ensures you understand the fundamentals
of paperfolding once and for all.
- And finally there are places tucked away (that have taken me
hours to discover) where you can find CLEAR directions for any
origami design your heart desires, and if you have developed your
skills in the right way, you can be able to fold, without
Don't be one of the people who give up on Origami because it
becomes too challenging. Obtain the best information, persist in
building your skills and open yourself up to everything Origami
has to offer.
Good luck and happy folding!
