Kami

…/paper-review-12-kami

Kami is the classic origami paper and the one most often recommended for simple models. Since one side is colored and the other white, this paper can be used for models with color-change technique. Some variants, called duo have both sides colored, but the paper inside is the same. I encourage you to read Ilan Garibi’s review to find out more about this paper.
