Since my friend Roman Diaz showed me the photos of this inflatable origami swan, one of his creations, I was looking forward to folding it. Recently, he published the diagrams in his wonderful book “Origami Essence”. Although I don’t own this book yet, I finally had the opportunity to fold this swan in particular.
The folding sequence is elegant, and here I post the result with great satisfaction. The model is meant to be duo-color, but I folded it using onion skin paper, which is white on both sides.
May 14, 2010 update: I bought my copy of Origami Essence. I love it! Do not hesitate to buy it. It’s worth every penny.
