page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami swan.
This is one of the simplest origami swan you can make out of a square paper. If you know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are, then you will have no problem in folding this model. Ths origami swan is based on a so-called "kite base".
If you are ready, then let's get started.

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.
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.
