Sheep (Design by Hideo Komatsu)

This weekend I chose to fold Hideo Komatsu’s Sheep, the diagrams of which are available in Origami Tanteidan Magazine # 105. If you are interested in folding this model from a CP, you can find the CP in Origami Tanteidan Magazine # 93.

There are 112 steps in all and this model can be categorized as Complex in the level of difficulty. I used a 9 inch square sheet of Tissue fur backed with natural fur paper on one side. Both of which, I have purchased from Nicolas Terry’s origami shop, not long ago.

For the duo colored paper, I came up with a new idea this time around. I ‘recycled’ an old origami model – Román Díaz’s Oveja – to use for Hideo Komatsu’s model. What I did was to open up Román Díaz’s model, which was folded out of black colored (both sides) natural fur paper, straighten out the creases by hand and then, by placing a handkerchief over it, iron it out to smoothen the sheet. I must say this turned out pretty well and I guess it can only be done for sheets which are used for simple models. I then pasted this, using common glue, to the back of the ivory colored tissue fur paper.

This looked great when finished even though the glue took some time to dry up. Overall, I am pleased with the way the model turned out, except for the Sheep’s face – for which the paper became too thick to make any distinct folds.
