Garbo

 

This fan is now made to order in 7- 10 days.

'I never said, "I want to be alone." I only said, "I want to be let alone! There is all the difference.'

Greta Garbo (September 18, 1905 – April 15, 1990), born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson, was a Swedish born actress and Hollywood icon. 

Well said Greta :)

Another mask inspired, Night at the Opera themed fan which I can make this fan using a different colour palette, just ask.

A palest lilac base that is semi translucent up to light with a gentle purple glitter applied. The mask is in tones of blue, pinks and mauve with ivory and white lace patterning. My Garbo has brightest green eyes. The staves and guards are finished complimentary colours to the fan and the back is a simpler colour match to the front. 

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 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:

  • 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.
