This paper proposes an iridescent face imitating to perfection iridescence of feathers or wings of many animals. It is also ideal for folding shells of insects, especially with its black reverse side which makes it easy to get the black legs and other members of the insect. This is a paper that fold remarkably well alone. As it is particularly thin (with 42 gsm, it is very close to a tissue paper), it can also be easily glue on foil paper (sandwich paper) to shape your models more easily.

This paper was made ​​available by Origami-shop for the first time in large size for the origami community on 5 September 2013.

The 'coloured' sides are a little on the darker side but the metallic shine is beautiful.
