The Man, and the Man Standing on Hands, are two models designed by Akira Yoshizawa, that can be found in the book, Origami Full of Life, ISBN 4916096312.I folded each model with a 7 ½" (188 mm) square of Reynolds Wrap Non-stick Pan Lining Paper, a nice and strong parchment-foil paper.

14" (350 mm) square of tant paper (Pack Tant 35x35cm), and then I folded a wildflower in the center of each quarter of the paper.
It took me a while to figure it out, but I like how the model ended up looking. I hope you like it too.

Origami 4 - The Art of Paper Folding, by Robert Harbin, ISBN 0340218223.
I folded it with a 5" x 15" (125 mm x 375 mm) rectangle of Reynolds Wrap Non-stick Pan Lining Paper, a parchment-foil paper used for baking, which happens to be great for origami too!

Nasoya Won Ton Wraps, that are very thin sheets of pastry that come already cut into squares. The recipe for the original Cinnamon Sugar Crisps can be found here. I folded the pastries into simple traditional origami models before baking (windmill, house, penguin, flapping bird, tulip, pajarita, flower), to give them an Origami Twist.
I brushed the pastries with melted butter, and sprinkled some cinnamon-sugar not only on the outside, but on the inside of the models too. I baked them on a greased non-stick pan.

copper wire mesh. This material was the most difficult to work with. It definitely does not like reverse folds.
Besides paper, what other materials have you used to fold origami models?
