I designed and folded this dragon from a border-grafted blintzed fish base.

I designed/folded this dragon, starting with a border-grafted bird base, using the ratio 1:6. This means that the width of the “extra” paper along the borders or sides of the paper is 1/6 of the width of the paper in its original form. This allows for broader wings.


Happy New Year!

Hagupit, my typhoon-inspired dragon :-)

My latest dragon, which I’m naming after the strong typhoon that battered Philippines…and I was folding it then. 🙂 The folding procedure is basically the following:
1. Border graft the paper.
2. Petal-fold the ‘extra’ square in two opposite corners.
3. Fold a stretched bird base.
4. Shape the head, horns, legs and tail.
5. Pleat the wings and form the wing claws.


dragon with horns: second version

Like the previous one, this dragon is folded from a border-grafted stretched bird base. For the head, I made use of the technique featured in Robert J. Lang’s ODS, wherein a small bird base is formed from the “extra” square paper resulting from border grafting.
