That picture is washi ningyou in 2D, you can use it for bookmark or maybe a key chain. What I want to explore now, is washi ningyou in 3D, can you guys imagine it?
It's soooo adorable isn't it?
I've made this once, so I'll share the materials:
- small styrofoam ball (for it's head)
- black crepe paper (for hair)
- origami paper
- Japanese washi paper
- a bundle of tissue (to backstop it's body so it won't be falling, or you can use another thing)
