Curvy wet-fold origami animals are here to cheer you up

Unless you are an origami geek, here are the softest looking Japanese paper folds you’ve ever seen. Picking up the wet-fold origami technique developed by the late origami master Akira Yoshizawa, young Vietnamese artist Hoang Tien Quyet explores the possibilities of this ancient paper art, wider than we could have ever imagined.

Wet-folding is an origami technique that requires the artist to dampen the paper before folding it into a figurine, making the process easier and the sculptures more flexible in their form. When using this technique, the artist has to work with a thicker kind of paper that doesn’t tear too easily and use sizing, a water-soluble adhesive that bonds the folded paper parts together and hardens the whole final piece after it dries.
