    Origami is the art of paper folding, and there are many different types of origami techniques that can be used to create a variety of models. Here are some of the most common types of origami techniques:

    • Action Origami: This type of origami involves models that can move or change shape, such as a flapping bird or a jumping frog.
    • Modular Origami: This technique involves creating multiple identical units and then assembling them to create a larger model, such as a stellated icosahedron.
    • Wet-Folding: This technique involves dampening the paper before folding to create more organic, curved shapes.
    • Pureland Origami: This technique involves folding with only one fold at a time, and is often used to create simple, elegant designs.
    • Origami Tessellations: This technique involves folding a single sheet of paper into a repeating pattern, often with intricate geometric shapes.
    • Kirigami: This technique involves cutting the paper in addition to folding it, and is often used to create pop-up cards or other decorative designs.
    • Strip Folding: This technique involves folding long, thin strips of paper to create intricate designs, such as a woven basket.
    • Model Bases: These are the structural skeletons of origami models, and there are several common bases that are used frequently, such as the waterbomb base, preliminary fold, kite base, fish base, bird base, and frog base.
