It was absolutly clear: I will make an Origami-mask. It was surprising, that it looks like a bird. Some time ago I saw in the book Origami Wohndesign from Armin Täubner, by top verlag, a special technic. It shows how you have to prepare a fabric for using it for Origami. That was very interesting and I decided to try it.
- Put a plastic sheet on your table, larger than your fabric
- Mix woodglue and water 1,5 cm to 1 cm
- coat the fabric with glue from one to the other side
- now you can dry it
- after ironing between two papers you can start
You can see my origami on my drawings. Test the mask first with a pice of paper.
Cut the holes for the eyes. You can make different versions and dekorate the mask, if you like. I hope you enjoy it!
Conclusion: A nice mask, easy done. the technique works well
Material: 32cmx32cm fabric, I used ShweShwe cotton from Karlotta Pink
