Hey Gemini's....this is a one off, just like you!
For you or your Gemini friend!
Punchy glow in the dark discs marking pot the stars in Gemini constellation using a high quality pigment that holds a pale greeny blue colour for hours after charging in light! The stars are in the formation of Gemini (21st May 21st June).
I have used artistic licence in the stars patterning as the constellation is shown on it's side, heads of the twins on the left of the fan. I have used these colours to symbolise the quicksilver aspect of Gemini. Other signs would/could be made in different colour accents.
Metallic silver surrounds the discs and decorates the guards and front staves, along with the Gemini symbol II. I will be making a fan like this for every constellation so keep an eye out for yours!
I am happy to make a custom order for any constellation and it will correspond to the signs traits and colours as you wish. Please note that this is a fully functioning fan but that the added pigments on the surface will make it a little stiffer to fold....think light canvas feel and touch.
Posted internationally with beautiful customised silk pouch, tassel, lanyard charm. Gift wrapped and boxed. You choose colours or I pick what I feel compliments? State preference on order.
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.

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:
