Thank you Jessica!
Wet-folding is a very interesting concept. The paper itself feels more like leather when you fold it and you can achive very organic looks.

I've only ever seen the actual folding, not the wetting itself. Is it done with a spray bottle?

You can either use a wet cloth / sponge or a spray bottle to start the folding. I used a cloth to make the paper evenly moist and while folding I used a spray bottle to keep specific areas I was folding on wet.
