Well this has escalated quickly!
I now used aluminum foil that you can buy anywhere at any shop (comes in roles and it’s used for wrapping food).
This is thiner than candy wrap foil and allot more stubborn!!
- a fold will always be visible and it will never tear at the fold line
- thin and can be twisted in all kinds of shapes as end design
- durable material, does not get wet or deteriorated by time
- has unique aspect
- can be used for many origami designs
- it can easy get punctured so care for sharp things
- tears only at the edges
- thin and light so don’t work near a windy spot (outdoors, near a fan, near some parrots …)
- I only have one color …. silver
- can not be used for origami designs that require inflating!
Here are a couple of my creations using foil paper. I really love shiny things if it doesn't show...
The first actually contains a red foil / pink lily. I pasted a pink sheet of paper to the back of the red foil to give it the two-tone effect. The downside is it thickens the paper and the makes creasing it a bit more challenging.
The second shows off the variety of colors it comes in.
I know those are not quite aluminum foil but foil paper can be a nice addition to a folder's arsenal. Now I do have some paper that is aluminum that acts a little different than both of these... so many choices! But yeah, good work and patience on getting this folded.
i have yet to try foil. maybe soon!!!
