This is yet another model from the book – Origami Essence, by Román Díaz; the finished model is absolutely great, and the expression on the Vixen’s face is priceless. Very few Origami designs have such an outcome. This book has a lot of interesting models to choose from and with the right kind of paper will make a great result.
This model is categorized as Level 3 in the book, with Level 1 being the least complicated and Level 5, highly complex. The suggested paper to use for this model is Tant paper, painted red on a side and white on the other to take advantage of the color changing involved. You can also use Kami paper of as in my case, tissue foil for this model. As per the book, the size of the final model is around 0.4 of the size of the paper you have started with.
This model makes used of the duo-colored paper to form the color changing face, chest and tail.
Paper to use:
I made use of a 20 cm square sheet of tissue foil paper which I bought from the Origami-Shop.com site. The book suggests a paper size of 25 cm to start off with.
