Lion BWE Hideo Komatsu | Gilad’s Origami Page

And we know there are better folders than us out there. Luckily, this particular paper has a better quality than the usual copy paper. I really like folding with this paper.

Today he lives in Shoham, Hireo, in a house packed with thousands of models. Since this particular brand is so thin, I used a smaller square, which resulted with a well standing lion, without the legs spreading aside. Do you think that would you ever make a video on how to go about tackling a crease patterm; maybe a few helpful hints or advice? Looking for challenges, he started to decipher crease patterns in order to fold the most complicated models.

Still, it is necessary to be very careful, since it might rip in the edges.

Like Tant, it was necessary to unfold the paper partially to go through the rough stages of forming the inside layers of the back legs and creating the mane. He has folded numerous complex models, often several copies – be it from diagrams or CP. For many years he folded animals and insects from Montroll and Lang books.


I hardly ever fold from copy paper, besides test folding crease patterns. Still, it is not easy to fold a 3D animal from it.

This paper has a wonderful texture, but it is not an easy task to fold and shape it. I used water-based varnish to enhance the texture and to strengthen the paper a bit, and it was still no easy task.

I think it is best for folding insects and super complex models, and not for animals such as this lion. Folding such a complex model was no easy task: Having this idea, we started our search for a master folder, one with enough patience to fold the same model ten times.

Last touches of finishing were easy to make using my fingers to shape the mane. The paper is very weak, and feels like tissue paper. In contrast to our opinion, Onion Skin Paper scored low with Eyal.

The finished lion looks and feel like a statue, and the shiny texture enhance komxtsu details. Eyal started to fold at the tender age of ten, discovering origami with Robert Harbin’s books. The advantage is how easy it can be shaped, and how it holds this shape. The added layers of color made it a bit easier to shape. The paper tends to tear when there are too many layers, so I unfolded parts of the model more than other papers in order to fold the back legs and the mane properly.

We wanted to set only minimal restrictions, namely that nideo papers were to be reviewed by folding the same model from the different paper types. This was, for me, the worst paper to work with, folding this complex lion. Shaping the lion was easy and the final model looks very nice although a brown color would be more suitable.


But we – Ilan and Gadi – are only two folders, so our reviews summarize only our point of view. Because there is whole new world of origami that would be accesable for me and others who do not know how to fold cp’s if you could help. Despite the thickness of this paper, it is the best paper for the lion, as well as hido of Komatsu’s models in general. Our reviews are all about getting to know different paper types and with hands-on experience reviewing their strengths and best areas for use.

Lion – Hideo Komatsu

I worked slowly, so I managed to fold it perfectly. Still, the wrinkled texture of the paper might be good for a furry animal model. Shaping was very easy since the paper tends to hold the shape very well, and the result is very nice. This is my first time folding from this expensive, high quality paper.

It is necessary to fold very carefully and perfectly if you want to avoid the metallic foil side to be seen in the final model.
