Phalacrognathus muelleri II

Designed and folded by Sipho Mabona May 2007


Wet folded form one uncut square of origamido paper then colored with green and golden ink mixture.


This is a modification of my previous designe. In order to add the spurs I had to shorten the legs by one unit lengh which made it possible to keep the 64by64 grid.

I am a lot happier with the shaping of this model but I needed to cheat in order to do so. I painted the model only after folding this time. That way the paper stays thin and crisp.


PS: If I could only remember how I got that lighting I had in my first version.
