This review is specifically for Tuttle's 500 sheets of kaleidoscope pattern 6 inch origami paper.
Pros: excellent weight, strength, texture, printed on one side, solid color on the other, all sheets are 6 by 6 and are square. The sheets are not glossy or too thick like the paper that is often in the origami 365 day calendars.
Cons: The paper has a "paper mill" smell. I can smell it if I hold a completed model about 3 inches from my nose. The odor does not come off on your hands and fortunately it is not too bad.
I've been folding origami for over 50 years and this is terrific paper to fold. It makes crisp clean folds, the dye does not come off. I made several traditional cranes with this paper, they had crisp pointed heads and tails that held their shape because the paper is the right weight and texture for origami. I like it so much that I've ordered another pack.
