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 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.


 

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:
