Aww, thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it! I'm glad to hear of what you think of it.
The background is just my dresser, I wasn't thinking of it when I took the picture. I do sometimes use cloth when it gets really dirty. Thank you for asking! I usually put my origami on top of the glue stains or etc so that they don't show. This picture was a long time ago, so I guess things were pretty neater than they are now, I hope that answers your question! Speaking of cloth, I guess it's time that I clean it again before I upload a new piece of origami!
(I would recommend putting the object on top of regular paper as well.)
