Orizomegami - Fold and dye designs for paper and fabric
Orizomegami is essentially paper that has been folded and then dyed to produce a pattern when the paper is unfolded. Folding and dyeing paper is not a new ideait has been practiced in Japan and around the world for centuries. If you work with fabrics, you might notice similarities between orizomegami and the Japanese fabric dyeing techniques of shibori or itajime. The basic technique is simple, producing beautiful papers and fabrics, even if you only have a smidgen of artistic ability. Orizomegami has a life of its own, and you can only control the final result so much. Each paper or fabric that you dye is completely unique and a surprise when you unfold it and the pattern is revealed.
Orizomegami is not like a lot of other crafts. You probably have many of the inexpensive materials around the house already. It takes only minutes to set up (and clean up), it can be completely non-toxic and fume free (depending on what dyes you choose), and even a 5-year old can produce beautiful results. Most modern orizomegami papers are made using only a few basic folds and the most basic application methods. This book takes a much deeper look at the art of orizomegami and explores more of the possibilities. Consider this book a jumping-off point, or a creativity-booster. There are infinite numbers of fold and dye possibilities awaiting discovery!
