Yin Yang Paper Koi Sculpture by yuumei Yin Yang Paper Koi Sculpture by yuumei




I made yin yang koi! These are completely made out of paper without glue or tape and posable :D I posted some wip glowing ones last time in my status but this how they look in the day! 

The scales interlock to hold the pieces together, but they're also loose enough to allow the koi to bend in any direction. I'm hoping to sell diy kits of these when the designs are more finalized, would anyone be interested in buying one? You can see more photos on them here www.instagram.com/p/Beq_Ud3nzR…

Aside from games and books I don't often buy a lot for myself but I would totally get these if they were made available.

Depending on the price, I would be interested in buying a diy kit. These look fantastic though so I'll probably talk myself into it regardless if/when they become available.

Oh yeah, DEFINITELY interested in a DIY or fifty. These would be SWEET to make a bunch of and hang on ceilings and stuff. Would they be able to be colored? Glad I got caught by Knites because I would have missed THIS awesomeness right here.
