The Old wise Owl by FoldedWilderness The Old wise Owl by FoldedWilderness
FOOD FOR THOUGHT

The old wise owl does no longer hunt
For all his senses have grown so blunt 

High on his perch above the Kingdom
The Owl decides to impart his wisdom

And though he likes to share his advice
He trades it now for a handful of mice
                                     -Foldedwilderness


Origami owl, from a single square of paper, painted with acrylics before folding.
Model designed by Román Díaz

"A wise old owl lived in an oak.
The more he saw the less he spoke.
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird
?"  ;)

A very fine model, and great staging too!

I am happy that you mentioned the poem because it's one of the few things I ever wrote that I think is good.

Yes, I know but, I don't want to let people know that; because it would ruin the owls good racket they have going on.  ;p

I love the poem and the owl : )  Great work and really great photo shows it off so well.  Do the acrylics make it easier or harder to fold?  I would think the edges would crack a bit.

Thank you very much.

The paint makes most models a bit easier to finish, since it makes the paper stronger and more rigid.

It also makes it a bit thicker, which is sometimes a problem but, only in the most complex folds.

The paint is quite flexible and I only have minor cracks, or splits some of the times, if I need to unfold and refold the same line several times in the process.
