You can fold your tissue paper without treating it with MC or gluing it to something??? I tried it once and it was impossible not to rip the paper.
Please, add me on flickr and tell me what you think!

Ah thanks,the tail part looks good then,i used red/blue paper so it looks a bit strange:)
But the head part is so thick that i cant imagine how You can handle it with only 50 cm paper. After spreading wings 50% of the head was unfolded.
And i was really careful.

For me it looks like very very big part of being succesful folding ancient dragon is having good ,thin and strong paper.

For my first attempt i used a paper, which name i don't know in english, but it is just like a big sheet of common white paper like the one used for writing, it was 50 cm and it got thick at the end but still with an aceptable result

step 86

Post by mojo »

hey :D I'm currently on my 5th attempt to fold the dragon. My past 4 attempts were failures because of poor choice paper of paper, it either got too thick and began tearing or was too flimsy and because of slightly inaccurate folding.

For my current attempt, I am using a 115x115cm large kraft/wrapping paper type paper. I'm now on step 100 and the papers is probably approx 1.0 cm thick :D (this is a large improvement compared to previous attempts)

I'd like to ask, is this what step 85/86 should look like?

i know there has been much reference to this step in the form and a decent picture of step 85 is on page 25, but i'd like to confirm that is this what it should look like.

Thanx :)
why am i soo confused?

By far the best paper is
18inch Tissue foil
Or
Double tissue
E=mc^2- Exellence= MC on a square

...or CMC....

Hey, ok umm. .

At step 99, just push the middle bit out and create the mountain and valley creases as shown in the book, it should fold quite nicely and look like step 101 .

At step 101, just push the flap inside (open sink).

step 102-104 is just an open sink again, exactly like what you did at step 72-74

step 105-106 should be straight forward, just a crease

step 107, just push the shaded flap inside (open sink) along the crease you made in step 105

That's the best I can explain, hope it helped
why am i soo confused?
