Dive under the sea with these realistic marine origami models!

In Fantastic Origami Sea Creatures, Japanese origami expert Hisao Fukui shows you how to create incredibly detailed aquatic wildlife, including a giant squid, prehistoric creatures and even a massive blue whale calf!

The step-by-step folding instructions and photos in this book present 20 challenging and amazingly lifelike models — from intermediate to complex in terms of their level of difficulty.

The 20 projects in this book include:
  • The Penguin — A color-change model capturing the awkward and slightly comical appearance of these flightless aquatic birds
  • The Polar Bear — A menacing hunter who will hungrily stalk the edge of your desk or bookshelf
  • The Goldfish — This model features elegant lines and clever folding solutions — and it's difficult to overfeed, to boot!
  • The Crocodile — A lurking hunter which is ideal for showcasing special papers
  • The Crab — With all of the legs to define, this model is a challenging one, but with fewer pinch folds than you might expect
  • The Manta Ray — A graceful and gentle filter feeder whose sweeping wings give you the opportunity to create a truly expressive paper sculpture
  • And many more!
