For those who have actively plough the web for origami design, you will not fail to notice some very good design from the Vietnam origami groups. Many of them do come with diagrams and you will be lucky if you can get hold on the crease pattern (CP) to fold some of their models.
Not a master folding from CP myself, I got started with a ‘simple’ design by Nguyen Hung Cuong, the Skull. What I meant by simple is that it has lesser crease line to fold (good excuse for being lazy… :p). I wish I could produce a copy of the CP here but You can find it easily on the web. (one good source would be from the <Passion Origami> website).
But lesser crease does not necessarily mean easy to fold. For a test fold, I simply printed the CP onto a A3 size paper and folded along the lines. The challenge is how these fold collapsed onto each others. It took me a few trial before I finally got it right.
Last but not least, the model need a good deal of shaping to give a softer look, but I’m too lazy to do it for a test fold, so it ended up like this:
Now…. where to get a nice ‘bone’ texture paper to fold it again?
