Artist's Description

My origami calendar

I tried to fold a crane out of gummy candy, which came out far less successful than the candy wrapper folded crane. First I had to take a slice of gummy thin enough to fold, but not too thin that it would be too delicate to fold with; or stick to one another too easily while folding; hence getting ruined. Secondly the folding process could not be done continuously; I had to leave time between some folds to let it dry before proceeding, otherwise the gummy is just too sticky to work with. Third, the completed crane had the tendency to want to unfold and shrink, hence the stubbiness. This also made photo shooting difficult; I had to try to take the picture before the crane unfolded or contracted any further; the parts needed some pinching and stretching before the picture was taken.

I was debating on whether to upload this or not, but hey it is at least kinda recognizable as a crane… well I liked the title :P
