A string of cranes

See here

(Due to technical difficulties in another hosting site I had to resort to this)

Generally with miniature origami, there is the great challenge of preventing the delicate little piece of paper from being damaged by the moisture of my hands so I had to wipe them often. Making a single crane in this strand (particularly ones in the middle) takes much more patience then making one individually because I of the interference of the other attached cranes/ paper squares, and I have to ensure that I do not accidentally detach the paper while folding (while cutting the slits, I left about 1mm at the ends).

This actually takes much greater patience than folding Born from the Cell (the process for that piece can be seen here)

    I’ve been in awe of what you’ve done before… and this blows everything previous away. My jaw drops thinking about how much patience this would take…

  • Oh yeah; I spent DAYS on this… partially because sometimes part way I was not careful enough and the cranes split apart. That said the final product is not the first trial; I did this over and over again a few times. There’s also the matter of documenting the process; and that always eats up time.

    Wow, you have so much patience! I can’t imagine how fiddly it must be Mui-Ling!! I’m going to have to buy a book to teach me how to do origami, but regular size and not miniature :o)
