Is this type of paper good for folding the Ancient Dragon by Satoshi Kamiya?

The process of making is the point of it. The object looks good if the process felt good.

It depends on where you get it...

i've been disappointed with origami-shop for a while. it took them around 3 months to send me 'origami sequence' and it took even longer for my sheet of origamido a few years ago. now they are charging a TON for this paper which can be bought a lot cheaper from people who have already bought some in bulk from a supplier. Then i go on and see this: 'The size is 64x64cm approximately. It may vary for some sheets and so in a few case, the square is not perfect (we do not cut it ourselves).
Also, all sheets of "Crumpled - Black" have 2 small holes inside the sheet (1 mm diameter).
More over, all sheet of color "Crumpled - Brick Red" has a small cut on a edge. You will have to cut a new square in the sheet removing 3 mm of paper on a edge. By ordering this paper, you accept these possible defects!'

i'm sure nicolas gets it from the manufacturer, slater. and no, it's not a perfect square, but it is rectangular so it's easy to get a square.

What kind of shipping did you pay for? If you put it on the slow boat, it's not really much to do with the shop. My two orders have taken 5-6 weeks, which isn't bad given that I chose the cheapest possible shipping.

I received email notifications when the order was shipped; in my case they were quite quick to get it out.

strange, i always choose the cheapest shipping option and it gets here in usually less than 3 weeks.
on average, 1 or 2. At the most i have ever had, 3 months, but that was because of a customs screw up xD

That makes sense ... slow boat takes 1-2 weeks to get from where you are to where I am. So not that strange.

doesn't work like that. if you're going to make a public claim, you have to defend it in public. make the VOG paper into this:

no glue, no wire, no painting, not one drop of methylcellulose.

I don't have a flickr and don't plan to have one anytime soon. I can email you the picture, but that's about all I can do.
