You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami swan. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

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 actually a quite large paper. You can use a smaller size one if you become familiar with this model.

This is the front side of paper.


If would be nice to have a white color one.


But it is extremely difficult to see the paper under white background.


So I use a black paper instead to make a black swan.

This is the back side of paper.


Keep in your mind that the front side is the shinier one.
