If you have any trouble with the folding of any of the figures, origami, refer to the section symbols, and basic shapes. Most of the schemes basically have some basic form, because to succeed need to learn these basics.
The simplest figures for folding figures are presented in different sections (boxes), dolls, thimbles. If you do not have experience, start with the development of basic figures, gradually complicating the task - refer to the section transport and try to lay down their figures ship and boat.
For the organization of home theater, see the section dolls, thimbles. To make the scenery, please see the nature. If you want to organize the formulation of Russian folk tales, see the section fairy-tale characters - certainly there you will find the appropriate characters. It should be noted that all figures in this section should consist of several parts, using glue. For starters, perhaps this problem will be somewhat tricky.
Origami history of occurrence.
Translated from the Japanese "origami" means "folded paper" in the land of the rising sun art of origami is called the art of an entire sheet. This is one of the most important rules of origami - not to add or subtract anything extra. This law is followed for many centuries all artists origami. With this kind of art this is the Millennium is the most unusual and original.
Origami appeared almost immediately after the appearance of paper in Japan. That Japanese, not the discoverers of the new writing material - the Chinese figured out to use paper as a raw material for the decorations and products. First, a new sophisticated and valuable material used in carrying out various religious ceremonies.
The word "paper" and "God" in Japanese tune. Therefore, all paper products has accorded religious significance. In the temple walls were decorated with paper with images of gods and recorded their commandments. With sheets of burned sacrificial fires. In special paper boxes were taken to bring gifts to the temples.
History of the development and dissemination of origami.
It would be foolish to claim that origami is a purely Japanese art. Not a few countries can also boast of their own achievements in the field of folding paper figures of the whole leaf. Together with the spread of prescription paper manufacturing spread and art of origami.
A very striking example that confirms this fact, Spain became. Local craftsmen have opened their unsurpassed method of folding the birds "Pahari" (in Meskike this creature came to be called a little differently - "payarit", which was significantly different from the Japanese guidelines for origami).
Spain has even been formed "Spanish school" under the subtle guidance of the philosopher Miguel Umanumo. Here have developed new methods of folding the classic figures, as well as inventing new, previously unknown even to the classics - the Japanese masters. Under the Spanish influence of origami, which has become a very short time, popular art, and spread to Latin America.
Legends about origami.
Our world is ninety percent dependent on how we perceive it. Feelings and emotions are an integral part of human existence. It is these manifestations of shaping our attitude towards certain things, events and phenomena. If we hear from all that painting - it's fine when you met her at a subconscious level, we strive to find in it is beautiful, what have heard so much.
Perhaps it is to awaken curiosity and craving for new students, an origami master came up with a variety of stories - legends about the importance of origami in human life and history in general. The most important and well-known legend about the Japanese art is directly linked to the most relevant and important origami - paper cranes.
In the East the crane is a symbol of love, faith and hope. Since ancient times people believe that if we make thousands of such figures, and then gave away all their friends and acquaintances, then turns very, very long cherished desire.
Origami in modern life.
We are associated with a paper from our earliest days until the end of life. Today, kids are faced with sheets of this material is much earlier than the start to learn to write or read. The child vomits, crumples it, trying to make a sheet of the desired shape. This material is available and cheap, so it can be without fear of trusting children.
Other amenities such employment for a child is something that the paper is easy to any deformations. And after class for a long time and keeps well defined shape. It is used today in many educational and developmental techniques.
With the help of various origami techniques can easily develop children imaginative and logical thinking, imagination and intellect, ingenuity and imagination. At the same time it is done completely transparent to the baby in the form of games and interesting time spending.
Innovations and experiments.
Like any art form of origami is not frozen in place in the twelfth century. Gradually, it transformed, brings ever greater experience and tradition. Create different schools, depending on geographical location and the innovative principles. At the moment, origami-products are not only paper but also of metal foil and other materials in which the product origami look even more original and entertaining.
Attracting new materials in engineering origami related mainly to the desire of authors to extend the life of their works. A paper is, alas, is subjected to any mechanical damage. Therefore, more durable materials, though often difficult to implement, but much stronger and more durable. Metal products do not just tear, and to deform it, will make significant efforts.
Thin paper is very handy when folded shape, but the form it keeps poorly. To correct these deficiencies have developed a new technology which has the working title of "silver sandwich. Sandwich - because it used the idea of ??layering.
A silver - because an important layer will be the usual fine cooking foil. If between two layers of paper to lay a layer of foil and glue them. The product is of such great sandwich squares will keep in shape, as well as the laminate will add bump origami.
Varieties of paper.
Today the progress allows the most different paper, each form is designed to meet your needs and has very special properties. There is a paper that thinner than human hair. Of waterproof paper makes the maps and bank notes. With the paper learned to imitate even the surface of plastic or semi-precious stones.
Paper differs in many properties - strength, relative to water, ink, original color, transparency, and many others. The paper is non-uniform material. At a gap in the sheet are visible seal or vice versa more subtle places.
Diversity also affects the properties of this material. The ratio of the paper with water is also very important. The fibers are glued together. The type of glue, and will depend razmoknet sheet or not. By the properties of the material is divided into many different types and species, whose number is difficult to name precisely because it is constantly growing.
