As promised, here are the other models by Nick Robinson that can be found in the nuinui japanese patterns box.
The bird is an action model – hold at the base and the woodpecker starts hitting the branch. The box/plate has very simple elegant lines.
They’re both folded from 15 cm double-sided kraft paper.
The buddha is folded from 20 cm Heyda plain paper, my variation that looks like pinoccio (it has a very long nose) or an imp (lutin in French) is also folded with double-sided kraft paper. It’s a first try, but I think this model has plenty of room for variations!
So… I bought this big box of origami paper by nuinui editions. The paper is amazing, and I didn’t pay attention, but it turns out the four models by Nick Robinson are really cute too. They’re not complicated, but the results are good.
So I started by folding plenty of elephants. For the photos, I had to borrow the grey one back from my roommate who had already claimed it :)
The blue elephant is folded from 20cm plain Heyda paper, the tiny one is washi chiyogami 7,5 cm (there are few enough folds that it works great in small) and the grey is 20cm Folia ‘Ornamental” paper.
I’ll blog about the other models in the booklet soon :)
