I had come across this particular design on the popular pajarita.org website sometime ago but never got around to attempting it. So this weekend, since I am on a roll folding things..I thought I’d give it a try.
This origami Shark has a total of 48 steps in the making of it and is of an intermediate level.
Paper I used:
I used a single side colored origami paper measuring 9 inches in size. This is square shaped and I found it pretty flexible to fold those intricate folds required for the fins. You are free to use either duo colored paper or single side colored paper for this model and you can even experiment with tissue foil or other types of paper.
How to fold this Shark:
Pajarita.org has the freely available diagram for this model. When folding this model, you will need to make sure that the creases are firm and crisp. This way, everything will get aligned properly when u fold the model in to half towards the end of the process. Most of the folds detailing the fins are rabbit ear based, whereas the rest of the steps are pretty much simple.
Doesn’t this model remind you of JAWS, now?? 😀
