Ogami Cicada Nymph by Dreams-Made-Flesh Ogami Cicada Nymph by Dreams-Made-Flesh
Made from an 8inch piece of Paper Circle Ogami! I wanted to choose a model I knew fairly well to test the properties of the paper...which I will edit this to detail later :)

The paper:

The paper feels like it is someplace in the 25-30gsm range, with all of the strength I have come to expect from a sheet made of 100% abaca (no tearing, even on intersections, very low fraying on creases, even those that take repeated folds, etc). Also, I was able to unfold a very complex insect from about 90 steps in or so, flatten the paper, and re-size it (with methylcellulose); once the paper dried, it looked nearly identical to a new sheet, with no residual fraying or weakening of the paper, and only very light crease visibility. I feel like this speaks volumes about the strength, versatility, and durability of the paper. The colors are great, very natural looking, with saturation and tones very conducive to animal subjects.

Dang, so complex, the only thing I could make WAS a plain old swan...till I forgot... :P *Whirr*
By the way, I think you spelled "Origami" wrong in the title... *Click*

I wasn't attempting to spell "origami". Ogami is a special paper made by a paper maker called Paper Circle.
