Still haven't made it there yet :/.....Delphi in mainland Greece. The ancient centre of the known world where through many centuries, Emperors, Queens, Warriors, Priests, Artists, Poets, Philosophers and all and all and everyone came to seek the wisdom of the Oracle at the temple of Apollo. She spoke and they listened....sitting in smoke from abundant herb and minerals burning has probably hanged the course of history. I will get there one day and see all that marble and marvels for myself.
I used an expressive Jackson Pollock style fan with free form gold spatter across a mist of silver and pale grey in imitation of a glittery marble fit for a goddess. :) The marble effect carries across the whole fan including the staves and guard. Accented in ivory and metallic gold banding across lower and tips of staves and over guard. Edged with silver along the top of the leaf. The back is cool white with metallic gold accents. I've put this fan with my choice of tassels, charm and pouch but you can express differently at time of order and i will try to oblige.
Perfect for weddings, cocktails, holidays, part events and nights out!
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 FREE priority shipping, world wide. It will be tracked and require a signature.
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.
Anything else I can help you with, get in touch :)
All the very best,
Basic Fan Measurements, some fans may vary a little.

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.
