Origami Atlantic Purple Sea Urchin

Postby Milith Dheerasekara » March 25th, 2016, 3:15 am

Hello all,

I am not much of an experienced paper and was wondering what type i shoud use for a model like the Origami Atlantic Purple Sea Urchin. I was thinking maybe tissue foil or elephant hide. Anyway here is a link to look at the wonderful urchin with all 25 (or thereabouts) spines in full glory: http://www.derek.mcgann.com/origami/other%20artists/Atlantic%20Purple%20Sea%20Urchin.jpg

I would not recommend elephant hide, as it is very thick and the sea urchin needs a thin paper. Tissue foil would probably work well, or another thin paper.
