Paul Frasco is an origami designer focused on expressive animal and fantasy designs boasting fun and accessible folding sequences. Paul's design aesthetic is influenced by modern origami greats like Robert Lang and the late Eric Joisel. The scale of Paul's work ranges from diminutive pieces folded from a single sheet of standard origami paper, to oversized pieces including one folded from a single 18' x 18' sheet of paper for installation at Stony Brook University's Wang Center for Asian Studies. He has been featured in public spaces, museums, libraries and galleries around the US. Paul co-authored Creative Origami and Beyond.
"This kit comes with two types of paper--rectangular and square. Each sheet is decorated to make a specific dragon from the instruction book. These sheets actually make the projects even easier. The designs provide fold lines. The instructions in this kit are easy to follow. They are very clear. The introduction instructions are very simple. There are twelve different dragon paper airplane projects in the book." --Crafty Moms Share blog ..".my personal favorite is the Flying Dragons Paper Airplane Kit. They are just so cool looking!
