Curved Origami

Vietnamese artist Hoàng Tiến Quyết makes origami.  But these aren’t your ordinary origami.  He uses a technique called wet-folding, which as it’s name implies, adds water to the paper before folding.  This technique adds an additional layer of skill to origami as you now need to get the right balance of wetness to the paper so that … Continued
