Required: 1 square of thick paper, 8”-10” on a side, 90-120 gsm;
Small bowl of plain water;
6 mini clothespins (or binder clips, or other such miniature clamp);
Sticky tape (masking or painter’s recommended).
Optional, but recommended: Hair dryer, atomizer spray bottle, tool with a small, rounded tip (e.g. embossing tool, knitting needle or retracted mechanical pencil), bone folder.
Further notes on paper: A 6” square will work for those who like to fold in miniature. Tant paper, at 78 gsm, is a bit thin for wet folding, but can work at smaller sizes (6”-8”). I have successfully folded this from a 10” square cut from a paper grocery sack, which is a type of thick kraft paper. Foil paper will work in lieu of wet folding, but the spread squashes will be difficult to perform neatly.
