Wet-folding


Wet folding is a technique which makes it possible, through the use of moisture, to fold thick paper and shape it in interesting ways. This list only contains models in which wet folding is a crucial step since I use a little wet folding in many models, including tessellations which are usually not associated with using such a folding method.

This page lists models of a single type. You might be interested in folding instructions instead.
