Origami Nature Fairy Dragon – Nami

Because I love dragons and butterflies and because I felt artsy I made this!

I present to you Nami, the Fairy Dragon.

She is a Fairy Dragon of Nature. She protects nature and all it’s inhabitants. Her tail is long and it ends in a leaf drape that changes color depending on the season. She can conjure up beautiful butterflies with the help of her magical horns. On her right hand she carries a baby crane, a symbol of life and hope.

I hope you guys like her!

1. Thought to be the tiniest dragons.

2. The faerie dragon makes its home amidst the tangled forests of the world.

3. Can also be found in extremely secluded natural areas, especially areas with flowers and water.

4. Faerie dragons are about one foot long. They have thin bodies, long tails, gossamer butterfly wings, and huge smiles.

5. Their colors range through the spectrum, changing as they age, from the red of a hatchling to the black of a great wyrm.

6. The hides of females have a golden tinge that sparkles in the sunlight; males have a silver tinge.

7. They are linguists, well-versed in Draconic, Human, and Elven tongues.

8. Some say they can turn invisible.

9. Faerie dragons can communicate telepathically with one another, within a range of 2 miles.

10. Quick flying dragons.

11. While often depicted with butterfly wings, wings may also be faerie-like instead.

12. Faerie dragons may often take great amounts of time just to prepare one joke; they also often enlist the help of pixies and sprites.

13. Most faerie dragons have a temperament that is Chaotic Good. They have pure intentions, but are extremely fond of mischief.

Playing with Aluminum Foil

Well this has escalated quickly!

I now used aluminum foil that you can buy anywhere at any shop (comes in roles and it’s used for wrapping food).

This is thiner than candy wrap foil and allot more stubborn!!

PROs: 

– a fold will always be visible and it will never tear at the fold line

– thin and can be twisted in all kinds of shapes as end design

– durable material, does not get wet or deteriorated by time

– has unique aspect

– can be used for many origami designs

CONs:

– it can easy get punctured so care for sharp things

– tears only at the edges

– thin and light so don’t work near a windy spot (outdoors, near a fan, near some parrots …)

– I only have one color …. silver

– can not be used for origami designs that require inflating!

So here is some of my test origami 🙂 a bow and a flower!

Gold Dragon Origami – Ferrero Rocher Aluminum Gold Candywrap

I made this tiny Fiery Dragon (by Kadechan) dragon from a Ferrero Rocher candrywrap aluminum foil.

It was 10×10 cm after i cut a bit of it out and tried my best to straighten the foil without ripping it.

I made some mistakes by letting all that silver show, but it was a small model. So sorry about that! But it has all the parts: feet, little hands, wings, tail, head with horns.

It is strange to make origami from metal but the foil is so interesting to fold. Most of the pre-creases disappear so you have to either know the model you are making really well or have a good intuition on where they should be. Also, if you are a girl and have long nails it helps allot to fold with metal. If not get a paper clip or a blunt needle or something that won’t perforate the thin foil. More complex origami such as this Fiery Dragon you should already know all the folds, it helps allot.

Took me about 1 hour to make this lil’ guy but i love the way he turned out. Next time I will try using bigger foil. Food wrapping foil is also good, only bad side being that it’s only silver. I have also compared it to the smallest dragon I have made from paper (5×5 cm square).
