Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

In this book, Montroll introduces 2 new bases, an animal base and an insect base, and uses them to create some dog-breeds, animals and insects. Also included are a couple of fun inside-out models, the panda and the penguin.

As with many of Montroll's models, the finished diagrams are only a starting-point - so shaping, wet-folding and the right kind of paper are essential for a more lifelike look.

There are 24 Origami Designs in Origami Sculptures:
