So I'm still trying to perfect my own models, the rhino and the wolf. Recently I've finally found a store that sells some nice tissue, elephant hide and other types of paper. And I've been making tissue foil and cutting up heaps of squares, here are the results.
My wolf design, wich is finally in brown. Tissue foil 20 cm x 20 cmWolf roodborst foil 4

Two models by other designers:
Double Tissue foil (35cm x 35 cm)
He says that you should avoid tissue foil at the text going with the model, but I like the result. Made this bleuish/ silver combination especialy for this model
Satoshi Kamiya 's Coelophysis. 20cm x 20 cm double tissue
I've tried this model like 4 times already, but I've always got stuck. Now I made it with tissue foil and I had hardly any problems at all. Can't even remember where I got the lost the last times.
Took me like 10 minutes to get it standing for the pic btw and then cat my sniffed at it and it fell .... again
Ok now for the my own models that I wet folded from elephant hide.
I know... that Rhino again, but I'm still making slight improvements and it was nice to practise with wetfolding and my first time using elephant hide, wich is amazing I must say.
And now for the cream of the crop, My wolf design, folded from a piece of elephant hide paper of about 35cm x 35 cm.
Now this time I bought tape and elastic bands. I stuffed the model with papertowels then taped the model and used elastic bands to keep it in shape, to let it dry. I might even prefer the garbagebag 'twister', they are easier to determine the amount of stress you want to give to the paper.
