This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a new origami dragon.


This new origami dragon is similar to the traditional origami dragon. However, this model starts from calyx base instead of bird base. The outcome will be a skinnier from the old dragon. The special folding technique you would learn from this model is outside reverse-fold.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami dragon.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami dragon. Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
