Tiger Beetle

-designed by Phil Kuhns

-folded from a square of echizen gampi

 

This is a huge leap for me in my designing! It is box pleated on a 64/64 grid, and is the most complex origami design I have! To give the beetle a more realistic look, I mixed some green pearlscent into the mc before I sized the paper. This made it shiny!!

 

This will also be going into my display this spring!
