It is best to use it when glued to another paper tissue, mostly. This paper has a wonderful texture, but it is not an easy task to fold and shape it.

The paper tends to tear when there are too many layers, so I unfolded parts of the model more than other papers in order to fold the back legs and the mane properly. Shaping the finished model was easily done using a thin wooden role or the tip of a painter’s paintbrush, and, like with Elephant Hide, without any special treatment to the paper.

As I said before, there is no bad paper; it is just the wrong model. This was, for me, the worst paper to work with, folding this complex lion. This is my first time folding from this expensive, high quality paper.

And we know there are better folders than us out there. Having this idea, we started our search for a master folder, one with enough patience to fold the same model ten times.
