REVIEW by Clare LONDON
' I bought the Feathers fan which has stunningly detailed hand painted white feathers with silver highlights. It came in a bespoke box and has a silk case with a beautiful silver fan charm. I'm so pleased with it, it is to be used (as I'm a lady of a certain age!) and far more stylish than a battery fan but would also look fantastic on a wall. These fans are perfect for anyone who appreciates a unique and handmade gift.'
Hand painted falling feathers on a black fabric base that has the slightest hint of sparkles. Feather spines are finished in metallic silver as is the end guard.
'MEMENTO MORI'......or for those of us who don't speak Latin....Remember You Must Die.!
Review for this Fan:
5 out of 5 stars
'And now to the Memento Mori fan: again, so lovely and lovingly painted. A treasure forever. Thank you so very much!'
This is painted with acrylics and a lovely metallic sparkle paint surrounding the skull image. Hard to capture, much better in real space and time!

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:
