You can probably find a good model from Robert J Lang's website, although not all of them have cps. I plan to fold his mosquito (aedes aegypti) soon.

I've checked those. None of them clicked to me. How about any dragon like alduin by kamiya? Will I be able to fold it from a 60cm tissue foil?

Is it Terry TF or handmade TF? Neither one seems ideal for something like Alduin by my judgment, but you might be able to manage an insect from it. I'd folded a tiger beetle once from 45cm handmade TF (which was big, even for a 64 grid), so maybe try something similar?

It's Terry's TF.
A bug would be good to fold but I want it to be complex enough to be life sized (I'm using 60cm).
Otherwise, I can try the bahamut or any dragon!

Also, is Terry's black tissue foil black on both sides or white on one side?

Terry TF is black on both sides, just glossier on one side. He has "sandwich" paper (which I haven't tried) that's duo-colored, though.
Terry TF will probably be too thick for anything really complex, at least in my experience (even at 60cm). If that is in fact what you have--and not the sandwich paper--I'd recommend something like Jason Ku's Nazgul.

I have 40-45cm burnt-orange mulberry. Should I use it for a camel spider?

Really, is it too thick to fold? I was planning to fold kamiya's wasp 2.6 from it :/
Will that be manageable?

Anyways, nazgul seems a great idea. I'll fold it! Thanks!

What is sandwich paper btw? Is it easier foldable for complex models?

I folded my models with this paper before, so it is suited for some complex models. For insects, it might be more difficult to get thin legs because of the paper thickness. If you do use it, just remember to finish shaping with some wetfolding else it won't hold its shape as well (water works, probably MC too.) You can also use a smaller piece of that paper and fold a simpler wasp to get a feel from it.

Ohhh. I also have mulberry brought from origami shop. Can I use that?

I /think/ it's similar to homemade TF.
And yes, mulberry would be good depending on the size and quality of the sheet.

Size is 60cm.
And also, should I treat it with MC?

Yes, treat the paper with MC before folding. You'll also need to wet-shape it at the end.

Paper: kraft
Size:any size up to 70cm
Colour:krafty brown
Complexity: Complex, but not too time-consuming (something around kamiya'lyrebird lyrebird or diaz's unicorn maybe)

And...
Paper:double tissue
Size: 7.5cm
Colour:anything
Complexity: around high intermediate to complex but foldable at this size (e.g. Kamiya'a pegasus, Roman Diaz's mockingbird)

Preferably diagrams or simpler CPs
Thanks a lot!
