Silk Moth

Silk Moth

Designed & Folded by me

from bird base

Usually we don't use bird base, or other 22.5 degree design techniques to fold out insects 'cause it's way much easier and efficient to fold out insects in box-pleat, and I had never tried so hard to fold out insects in any way 'cause it was always too hard for me.

Few days ago, I found this cute insect during googling, got an idea on my head and tried folding it.

I believe that only one person on somewhere out there folded silk moth, but I don't know who it is and I don't even know this rememberence is correct at all, but anyway, I found it cute so I designed one myself.

When you search for origami moth on google, you'll easily find luna moth design by Jason Ku, and I really got inspired by his design and that might have helped me out during the designing and folding process.

I wanted the design to be the same color or the real one and tried to keep it thin, but the result shows that a little bit smaller and thicker paper would have been better off..:P

Hope you guys like it :D
