Overall Impression

Different from most origami kits out there, this kit is a little more advanced, aimed at encouraging folders to try out the wetfolding technique - using paper thicker than regular origami paper, which is moistened for easier folding and shaping.

The kit includes 50 sheets of special white paper, which is a little thick, a brush, and a set of acrylic paints to color it before folding. Each model in the booklet has full instructions on painting the paper before beginning to fold.

The designs are original and fun to fold, with high-quality diagrams and beautiful photos. I had a lot of fun with this kit.
