      Great fold!

      I have tried this model a few times but I feel you need the right paper, looks like you have it.

      You did a wonderful job shaping it!

      Thanks Mammaoca2008 and Wizmatt.

      About the paper, you wouldn't believe that it is made from cotton rags and is quite thin (approx. 40 gsm). In fact, it was quite a task to fold it. The basic folding took just five minutes, the shaping...almost two hours!

      I think you will be able to fold it. Just be patient with the sculpting!

      Ah yes....is that called chhapri paper. Using a chhapri sheet and made with recycled cotton?

      I might get some and try it out.

      But, looking at your folding skills, you should be able to do it with any handmade paper! :-)
