This is another design similar to Vincent Floderer’s ‘crumpling technique’. After trying out his mushroom design, I thought i’d give this one a try just out of curiosity. I am not sure who is the original creator of this design – either Vincent Floderer or Paul Jackson. So if any of you out there are aware, do let me know!
Crumpling this tissue paper into this design was pretty simple and easy to do, but however, it requires a bit of patience as the folds start ‘sticking’ together pretty often.
Paper to use:
I used a rectangular sheet of tissue paper which I got from the gift shop. What I did was cut one sheet into half and then used one of the “halved” pieces.
How to ‘Crumple’ tissue paper into a sea urchin:
I came across a video on YouTube.com by Ionoialdo, in which the contributor was shown this particular technique by Paul Jackson at an Origami workshop. It is quite easy to follow and the paper used in the video is an ordinary table napkin. So you can choose any fine paper as such in order to crumple it into various forms.
Just make sure you don’t end up tearing the paper when the ‘creases’ get too ‘tight’
