Why cartoon characters wear gloves
Animators had a few tricks up their slee...err gloves.
Today the Department of Outstanding Origami is exploring the beautiful work of Hoàng Tiến Quyết , an origami artist based in Hanoi, Vietnam who creates wonderful paper creatures using an origami technique known as wet-folding. As the name implies, wet-folding employs the use of water to dampen the paper, which makes it more easy to manipulate and adds a sculpting element to the paper-folding process, that would otherwise be completely geometric. To ensure that the paper doesn’t tear, wet-folders often use a thicker paper than is usually used for traditional origami.
