If you're a regular to my No1Fans website, you know by now how I love painting eyes and using images of eyes in all kinds of ways! I adore the Nazars or 'Evil Eyes' as they are sometimes called and I have made a few fans now that follow this basic idea....and here is my latest. See more below about Nazars.
Holiday ready for a beach side/ pool side cool feel and look or for evening strolls on warm evenings. perfect for hot travels, hot Mum to be and hot Grandmothers to be! Or make a statement addition to your outfit and keep an eye on everyone whilst they keep an eye on you ;)
Sharp metallic silver and deep black with a graphite sheen in bands top and bottom. The base is a turquoise blue with a cover of beautiful but very subtle glitter that sparkles divinely in sunlight, looking like a the Aegean sea and glimmers promisingly in shadows.
Finished with a mermaid scale pattern in white on eye and edging. Front guard is a deep glittering blue. Iridescent blue and silver on white staves with a sparkly silver and turquoise back. I have shown the fan in many different lights to give you a good idea of how the surface changes
I can include a card with a personal message upon request. Your fan will always be elegantly gift wrapped and boxed too at no extra charge. You're No 1 Hand Fan is sent priority shipping, world wide. It will be tracked and require a signature. Please see shipping information for estimated delivery times and costs.
The painting is made directly onto a blank fan which is made of Fabric and plastic. Then they are lacquered for further protection. I have used this particular fan for its lovely stury 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.
If you are looking for a way to display your fan when not in use? For a rustic look you can find small easels at craft stores that you can paint to match your fan as I have done for many of my photographs.
Some clients display their fans in deep frames, either open, for easy access or closed keeping the fan as an art object.A super easy way to show your fan on a wall is to put up two wall protrusions, make sure they are soft finish or padded (not bare nails or screws) and rest bottom of the leaf of the fan on the points, so the fan spans open.
Place the points about 5 inches / 12.6cms apart. Many of my images show fans displayed like this too.Or you can find generic hand fan stands here:
