Lion by Hideo Komatsu

As I said before, there is no bad paper; it is just the wrong model. I worked slowly, so Oion managed to fold it perfectly. The paper tends to tear when there are too many layers, so I unfolded parts of the model more than other papers in order to fold the back legs and the mane properly.

Lines and paragraphs break automatically. I komqtsu ever fold from copy paper, besides test folding crease patterns.

In order to make the paper easier to work with, and to enhance the texture, I applied water-based acrylic varnish. The texture of this particular paper is wonderful, and the paper enabled me to shape it perfectly, without using wet folding, MC or any other treatment.

I prefer a thicker Kraft paper for animals, but this one worked pretty good, too. It is best to use it when glued to another paper tissue, mostly.

Eyal started to fold at the tender age of ten, discovering origami with Robert Harbin’s books.

The finished lion looks and feel like a statue, and the shiny texture enhance the details.

I had to paint both sides gold this timekoomatsu the paper does not take paint well, so I had to repeat it several times. Last touches of finishing were easy to make using my fingers to shape the mane. I used the copper – light brown paper, highly suitable for the lion. Despite the thickness of this paper, it is the best paper for the lion, as well as most of Komatsu’s models in general.

This is my first time folding from this expensive, high quality paper. Leave this field blank. Looking for challenges, he started to decipher crease patterns in order to fold the most complicated models.


It was very challenging to fold the lion with Japanese Foil, since it wears down easily, and it is very difficult to reverse the creases. We found the right candidate in our home country, in Israel. It was a bit challenging to make sinks and un-sinks without tearing the paper, but I managed to do it.

Luckily, we did not have to look far. For many years he folded animals and insects from Montroll and Lang books. He could also pick a suitable paper size for each paper type, and paint and treat it as he thought fit. Great creators share their diagrams with him before publication to hear his opinion and to fix problems he finds.

Eyal got highly devoted to the task of reviewing the hiveo we had already rated, and finished all lions in less than a week. A short glimpse into his flickr collections will immediately show you why we chose him. It was very easy to shape the lion from this hiedo since it holds the shape very well.

This is one of my favourite papers and it is very good for animal folds, as the texture is highly suitable for that.
