Part 4 Crimp folds

A crimp fold is a form of pleating. It comprises of two reverse folds made at one. If you look at the beak on the penguin model, this can be folded with a crimp fold, rather than the pleat in step 6.
As well as practising to fold the penguin's beak by using a crimp fold, you can also try this simple chick model. The outside reverse fold in step 4 forms a nicely shaped bird head, and the crimp in step 7 forms the beak. This is a common method of shaping a bird's head.
