After figuring out the CP at various section, I prepared myself a 64cm square brown paper and started pleating.
For the first good few hours, its really not much fun. You have to divide the paper in to a 64×64 square grid. But its good training for patience.
The first section I tackle is the pair of feet. This is folded in conjunction with the trimming of the gown.
After folding the feet, it was set aside for a night with cloths peg to keep it in shape.
With the practice fold done earlier, it is quick to know the paper have to be halved breath-wise in order to fold the pair of wings. So it took me less than normal time to complete the wings.
Next come the tough part, to separate the double layered wings in order to fold the crease-band gather for the waist and upper torso. This is a very delicate operation as you don’t want to open up the doubled layered wings too much.
After you are done with the bottom crease band, there is another other one on the top portion! (my eye got crossed after staring too long at these zig-zag folds ). Finally completed the 2 rolls of zig-zag fold and tidy up the paper for the upper torso.
Folding the upper torso starts with the arm with arrow….
Moving into the full arm and towards the head….
Forming the centre body….
Getting the base for head and both arm now….
Formation of the head….
Almost complete the base, now only left with arm with bow….
Start of folding the bow…
Arm with bow collapsed into shape…
Finally the base model is completed.
Next will be the final touch …. shaping .
