Lampshades are made from parchment, not parchment paper. Parchment is made from animal skin. Parchment paper is paper made to look like parchment using plant materials. They are very different materials. Parchment typically does not fold well, and can not be used for complex designs. Dampening it helps to make it more pliable and reduces cracking and breaking. ---------- Joseph Wu, Origami Artist (via iPhone) e: josep...@origami.as w: http://www.origami.as flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/josephwuorigami/ facebook: http://www.facebook.com/joseph.wu.origami
