Three-dimensional figures in the technique of origami attract both children and adults. The beauty of the products, the availability of materials and the relative ease of assembly make the art of origami interesting and beloved by many people. In this article we will understand how to collect the dragon in the technique of origami.
In the network you can find many schemes of various degrees of complexity. Let's stop on not very difficult. We will assemble the figure from the so-called modules. Modules are most often triangular blanks of thick paper (sometimes from crepe). If you want the figure to be stable, then it is better that the paper is dense enough.
A triangle is obtained by folding a rectangle according to a certain pattern (first, bend it in half on the long side, then bend the halves to the center, and then bend the remaining tips, bend the resulting module in half).
Sizes may be different. Typically, the aspect ratio of the blank for a module is 1: 1.5.
In order to collect a simple dragon, you will need:
- 106 modules of any color at your discretion;
- PVA glue;
- free time (approximately 2 hours);
- eyes (you can buy ready-made for soft toys or make yourself out of thick paper, felt, etc.);
- flower to decorate the head of dragon.
The resulting modules are inserted into each other (in the pockets of one module, insert the corners of the other two). First we make the body, then we add the head and the wings to it.
