Jungle Animal Origami
“Challenging exercises for nimble paper artists. Young people...[will] enjoy Nguyen’s charge to paint, embellish, and personalize their creations.”—Booklist
With the fundamental techniques so beautifully illustrated in these pages, you’ll be able to create a menagerie of animals normally found deep in the African jungle. Easy-to-follow diagrams help you quickly learn the basic origami folds, including the kite, valley, mountain, inside and outside reverse, and pleat. So before long, a parade of hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, gorillas, lions, zebras, gazelles, and elephants will emerge from the paper. For a little extra fun, choose papers in animal prints and muted colors to capture the feel of the creatures, or use unusual colors and patterns for whimsical effects.
