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?
Reply
:iconmitanei:
mitanei Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2013
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.

It's so realistic! It's so intricate and the light coat of acrylic really brings out the textures in the paper and adds to the realism of the figure. Definitely worthy of the DD!

And I agree with one of the earlier comments on if you would mind making a tutorial ;)
