Build2Fan2.jpg This fan for Mme. de Rosamonde was made by scanning in a photo from an 18th Century original at the MFA Boston and altering the size of the leaf in Adobe Photoshop to match the size needed. Then the leaf was printed out in pieces, and ironed to fusible interfacing. Then the leaf was hand colored with watercolor to approximate the original, and then glued to the sticks with rubber cement. A layer of gold tissue paper was glued to the back of the fan to sandwich the sticks inside the leaf and strengthen the fan. Finally the fan was folded, and soon the sticks will be painted using paint pens.
