What Paper Should I Use For _____?

Postby Baltorigamist » January 23rd, 2019, 11:55 pm

As the topic title suggests, this thread is like the “What To Fold?” thread—but in reverse. The idea is that members post a model they’re looking to fold, and others suggest paper (type, size, etc.) that would be most suitable.
I find that I’m often unsure of what paper to use for a given model, hence this topic.

For a leafy sea dragon I’ve been wanting to fold, I’m torn between gold Ogami and yellowish-brown kozo. (Size isn’t an issue.) What would look best?
Note that I don’t currently have any suitable greens; and single tissue isn’t strong enough.

Naoki Takeda Santa Claus? Most recommend two color (White/Red) very thin paper of at least 30 inches square. Where would you get that?

You'll probably have to make it yourself. You can get two sheets each of red and white tissue paper (20x30") and glue them together side-by-side.

Yes.
I don’t know which brand of tissue is best, unfortunately, so it might take a few tries.
