This was a wonderful opportunity to paint as I wanted to as i was given a free rein from my client :) I painted on to a glittering sea blue base with a realistic feel, concentrating on the details of the imagined gossiping fish, intricately painted in inks and acrylics and the turtle which is rendered again in acrylic with metallic sheen golds and coppers for the shell. I kept the back a deep blue but both front and rear staves and guards are finished in a geometric pattern of metallic gold.
I placed this particular fan with a small Lotus flower charm as a nod to the location this creature is found in but your fan will come with beautiful silk pouch, tassels and charms which will be matched to your final fans design. I can also include a gift card with a personal message upon request. Gift wrapped and boxed too. Sent priority shipping worldwide.

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:
