5 out of 5 stars   

 

This custom fan is absolutely stunning! It's extremely well painted, just the way I imagined it. Excellent conversation with the artist. She understood my wishes and created a beautiful and handy piece of wearable art. I get lots of compliments from people, all the time. This is already my second fan and will certainly get more items in the future. I highly recommend this shop! Thank you Sand! X

 

 

The leaf is a lush glossy scarlet with fire orange tones with deep ultramarine and metallic silver. The base of the fan is a metallic glitter lacquer in a sky blue.The butterfly carries onto the staves with an abstract silver feminine symbol of the circle with the small cross shape below. 

 

The butterfly is represented half winged as a side perceptive as if resting between flights. This makes it more dynamic and lifelike rather than flat like a specimen.

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:

  • Gifting a Fan?

    Is your fan a gift? I can include a card with your fan. Please let me know if you have a specific personal message that you would like included with your fan.

  • Want small changes to your fan?

    Let me know if you desire any small changes to your fan or if you want a bespoke custom order please get in touch and lets start the creative process!

  • Caring for your No.1 Hand Fan

    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.

  • Delivery info.

    Re International posting: I always send my fans out by deadline via Priority Royal Mail but delivery time may vary upon destination. Unforeseen mishaps and postage efficiency in destination country which are beyond my control may effect your delivery so please order in good time for your fan to arrive by your deadline.

    For insurance purposes I will need clear images of the damage to the fan and/or packaging taken upon opening the package.
