薔薇 （ばら、bara): Rose
Well, an origami rose does not smell just as sweet… though with the scent-free environments dominating schools more and more, this might be a good thing? At any rate, this post is about pretty origami roses.
The designs you see here are Kawasaki Roses, after which a film was named; the film’s secrets were complex and revealed only by peeling away later after layer. If you want to know why it was named the Kawasaki Rose, that’s because a dude named Kawasaki invented the method. Simple.
So, enjoy the pretty pictures and pursue this as much as you feel like.
“A blue rose” is an English idiom for something that is impossible in nature. Besides origami, you can dip a rose in blue dye or, in more recent times, genetically engineer one. Of these methods, origami seems the most sane.
And now, the video!
