This is one of the earlier model folded by me from the book ‘Origami Sea Life’ authored by John Montroll and Robert Lang.
This model is folded with a very tough paper commonly known as ‘Elephant Hide’. It is a good paper for folding complex model and can be nicely sculpted using ‘wet folding’ technique. The paper can also size up for a square up to 76cm x 76cm.
The result of the folded model is reasonbly good even without ‘wet folding’. It really give people the solid feel of the hard shell…..
