Veiltail Angelfish (Design by Satoshi Kamiya)

Satoshi Kamiya's Veiltail Angelfish

This is a design which has been on my Origami To-Do list for quite some time, now. I have been putting it off for as long as I can remember because I know that I usually sit with complex models for a really long time to complete them.

This took me 4 hours over 2 Sundays to complete it – not folding it continuously. There are 114 steps in all, not counting the repeats – and this is where, I daresay, I got side-tracked and delayed the completion of it.

Pack Tissue-foil Papers - 24 sheets - 30x30cm (11.8

Paper to use:
This model is best folded with pliable, thin paper because of the numerous layers and folding techniques involved. I have folded my rendition in Metallic Foil paper which I purchased from Nicolas Terry’s Origami-shop.com – Pack Tissue-foil Papers – 24 sheets – 30x30cm (11.8″x11.8″) – measuring 30 cms in size, single side colored. I found it easy to fold and shape the model (note the ‘pleating’ for the fins) in the end with this paper.

I read somewhere that the kind of paper Satoshi Kamiya uses for such models is special / exquisite and not something you can get at any shop. This paper is made specially made for such complex models / designs.

Tanteidan Volume 20 (#115-120)

How to Fold the Veiltail Angelfish:
The diagrams to this amazing design are in the Tanteidan Magazine # 120 which you can buy as part of Volume 20 from Nicolas Terry’s Shop – Tanteidan Volume 20 (#115-120).

This is a complex design to fold and is not for beginners and those who are not experienced in folding sinks, collapses and other complicated folds / techniques.

The end result is really pretty and will make a nice show piece on your Origami shelf. I enjoyed folding this model, even though there were a lot of repetitions involved in the process. The ending steps for shaping the design is the main part of the folding process which gives this fish a very delicate characteristic.
