A favorite of mine, but then I do adore blue!
Everything about this fan sparkles! The aqua comes through more in different lighting and the irredescent paints used on the staves and gaurds also change effect with the light, I have tried to show this in my images. All in all a shimmering mermaid type look with so many different effects all going on together.
I made this fan whilst in India last year and it really was inspired by the close at hand sea and the sparkling blue sky.
The tassel was also sourced in India and matches the fan well. Comes with an aqua blue silk pouch with a custom tassel.
Perfect for a spring or summer wedding, open air nights and days, hot commutes, parties, clubs, pubs and any where you need to keep your cool.
I have placed this fan with a pale pink silky tassel with a pink silk pouch and white tassel. There is also a small silver coloured flower charm for the fan. I will also provide a very handy wrist lanyard for easy carry.

The painting is made directly onto a blank fan which is made of fabric and plastic which is primed and then painted both on the front and back. Then they are lacquered for further protection. I have used this particular fan for its lovely sturdy feel it's durability and high use potential as well as having the closest surface texture to canvas for my paintings.
When receiving a fan please open it gently upon arrival and leave open for a wee while to rid any lingering process smells and to generally let the fan breath. Clean with a damp cloth and avoid rough handling, leaving in high temperatures and exposing to water....treat it as a usable art object and it will last you well.
Anything else I can help you with, get in touch :)

All the very best,
Some care instructions....Your fan is pretty hardy but as a hand painted object, it needs to be loved and cared for. When it arrives, open slowly and carefully especially if your fan has had a long overseas journey.
Keep away from excessive water or direct excessive heat and anyone that wants to play with it roughly or with sticky fingers, I find a quick fan clip round the ear does the trick!
Your fan has been sealed and lacquered for its protection and can be cleaned gently with a soft damp cloth, do not rub vigorously as this may damage the painted surface of your fan.
