How to use this paper:


- For complex models, choose a large sheet (48x48 cm or more)
- For intermediate models, a sheet 30x30 cm is perfect
- Dry-folding: for Tesselations, modulars and simple to intermediate models. You can also dry-fold complex model if the model does not have too many overlays (avoid insects for example).


Wet-folding: For more details, read Gilad Aharoni's article


1) Technic #1 (easiest):

Fold (dry) the model as far as possible. When the folds become too difficult, wet the flaps and creases with a damp sponge or water spray.

2) Technic #2

Moisten the entire sheet with a damp sponge or a water spray. Fold your model quickly before it dries. Dry with a hair dryer or outdoors holding sometimes parts of the model with clothespins. This technique requires that you know perfectly the folding sequences to fold the model as quickly as possible.
