Samurai Helmet Beetle Type 2 by Dreams-Made-Flesh Samurai Helmet Beetle Type 2 by Dreams-Made-Flesh
Samurai Helmet Beetle designed by Robert Lang.
Folded by me (no cuts or glue) from a 16 inch piece of kozo that I tinted with acrylic/methylcellulose.

Gahhh Every time I see another Samurai Helmet beetle design there is always some aspect to it that makes it so much better than mine :( The only insect designs I ever folded from are from Robert J. Lang's Origami insects and Their Kin, I also wish I had more time on my hands to concentrate on origami; the only kinds of paper I have with me is bonding paper, origami paper, and foil-backed paper. Where do you get Kozo and Korean Hanji? I really only fold as a pastime but I would also be interested to see how favorable of an outcome can result from a preferred choice of paper.

Lots to respond to here! Insects and their Kin has some really awesome insect designs. My other samurai helmet beetle is from that book. As for paper, most of those insects can be folded from the paper you have, but a better result will come from better paper. I get Kozo and other papers at my local art supply store. if you want to purchase online, the best stores are www.kimscrane.com, www.paperjade.com, and Hiromi Paper ([link]) if you are in the U.S.A. If you are in Europe, the best place is www.origami-shop.com.

Well (oh one of great nimble hands) you did a fine job figuring it out!

Can I remove myself from the bowing position now? My back is starting to cramp up.
