Customized sheet from fiber tissue paper

Postby Gerardo » April 29th, 2016, 4:23 pm

A couple of days ago I customized the most beautiful sheet :). That's why I wanted to share it with you.

It's made from a material called "papel telañara" or "papel regalo fibra" in Colombia. A rough translation would be "web paper" or "spider web paper" and "fiber wrapping paper" respectively. Here's a picture of the material exactly how it comes when you buy it. Although its sold as paper, it really is more like a type of thin fabric.

Do you know how it's called in English? Please let me know! If I find out the name by my own, I'll let you know.

In order to customize the sheet...

  1. I joined "papel telaraña" + tissue paper + "papel telaraña".
  2. I painted one side red with an acrylic paint that's specific for fabrics and the other side black with vinyl paint.
  3. I also added a coat of PVA sealant in each side. The paint and sealant was all I needed in order to glue the layers together.
  4. I sanded a bit the black vinyl paint coat to give it a worn out look.
  5. Finally, I cut the sheet to the correct size.

Image

The final sheet is a bit rebellious for folding, but you can still fold diferent models with it. It has a glossy finish. The black vinyl coat started to peal over the edges of the folds, which increased the worn out look of the whole model. It made the final model look WAY cool!

I can't show you guys the folded model but I can show you this close up of a step :D.

Please let me know what you think about the sheet and if you did find this post helpful or not, OK?

From the first picture, it reminds me of something I've seen called fur tissue. I got a small piece of it in a sampler pack from Origami-shop, though I haven't folded anything from it.

In any case, I'm curious how it works out for you.

I customized another sheet. The one I showed you guys last time is still my favorite sheet, in appearance, but this one also looked really good.

The process was a little different:

1. I painted one side of a Tyvek sheet gold.
2. I joined fiber tissue paper + Tyvek paper + fabric. The fiber tissue was over the gold face of the Tyvek paper.
3. I added PVA sealent to each face of the sheet just like last time.
4. I also cut the sheet to the needed size.


I folded Twist Jar, a creation of mine, with it. It was a gift for a friend in his graduation.

Hope you like the sheet and fold. Leave a comment ;).

I buy it in stationary shops nearby. I haven't really tried it on complex origami, but I think it's possible with fiber tissue paper + tissue paper or fiber tissue paper + aluminium foil + tissue paper. Remember to look for it as "fiber tissue paper".
