Over the last week I started experimenting with drawing on origami. It hasn't been turning out how I envisioned for a few reasons.
I'm no origami wizard. I have made some of the basics like cranes in the past but I'm struggling a lot with these complex Geometrical forms. The folds are simple but the building is a pain. After the first one, I decided to start using little scrapbook glue dots to keep them together.
Also I'm not sure exactly how to get the art onto the origami. If you fold it first, you struggle to draw around the folds. If you draw first, you struggle to fold it just right for the drawing. If you built first, it's hard to get support behind it.
Plus, if you use cheap flimsy origami paper like I did the paper doesn't take being drawn on very well. It also doesn't take being manhandled into origami very well.
I'll continue trying this out from time to time but it takes a while to make the forms so I don't have the time to do it regularly.
If you want to give it a shot, I'm using this book:
I think you could draw on other kinds of origami too but I wanted to see some cool geometric monstrosities.
If you decide to give this a shot, please share pictures. I'd love to see what you make.
