It is common to fold using a flat surface but some folders like doing it
in the air with no tools especially when displaying the folding. Many
folders believe no tool should be used when folding. However a couple of
tools can help especially with the more complex models. For instance a bone folder allows sharp creases to be made in the paper easily, paper clips can act as extra pairs of fingers, and tweezers can be used to make small folds. When making complex models from origami crease patterns, it can help to use a ruler and ballpoint embosser
to score the creases. Completed models can be sprayed so they keep
their shape better, and of course a spray is needed when wet folding.
