A friendly dolphin, a pretty seahorse, a slithery electric eel and a fierce barracuda: get ready to dive beneath the blue paper waves with origami master Duy Nguyen. With his simplified techniques, and the many detailed drawings that carefully show each fold and cut, kids will soon find themselves crafting a wide variety of colorful, marvelous sea creatures. There’s no need even to use traditional, specialized origami paper: regular computer or colored crafting paper will do, as will giftwrap. The fantastic creatures range from a Humpback Whale, King Crab and Octopus, to a Baby Tiger Shark, Swordfish and Stingray. There are Angelfish, Lionfish, Flying Fish, and Coral Fish, too. For extra effect, arrange them in an aquarium for an undersea scene.

Especially for people who have mastered all of Nguyen's base folds.

This is pretty advanced Origami and you can make some pretty nice sea creatures.

Good for people who have folded a few objects already and want to do more advanced Origami.

The only downside is the need for cutting the paper in quite a few of the sea creatures. An exacto-knife was needed for some and it should mention the tools they would recommend.

Loved it. Get it.
