Koi Carp


Koi Carp

This model is one designed by origami master Robert Lang. They are on the cover of his book “Origami Design Secrets”, which is a must have book for anybody interested in the science of.  paper folding.

Lang’s model has neat, rounded scales, over 400 in total. For this you need to use a big sheet of paper,  about 60cm x 60cm or bigger.  I wanted to try something a bit simpler and quicker to fold.  The model above has a mere 120 scales and was folded on a 30cm. square sheet of tissue foil.

The scales themselves are simple square pleats, which are made up as follows.

1. How to do a basic pleat

Form a simple pleat (i) Form a simple pleat.
Pleat in the other direction (ii) Then fold a pleat in the other direction
Form a waterbomb base  (iii) Gently pull apart the paper, forming a mini water bomb base
Squash the pleat down (iv) Squash the pleat back down.

2. Pleat the next row

Pleat the next row, horizontally and vertically.  Follow the order sequence below.
