Accessories to be complete : a fan

 A few sketch of the possible handle.It was on my wall with all my planning of the project.

To fight the heat , nothing can replace a fan.The book :Queen Elizabeth's wardrobe unlock'd by Janet Arnold offer many possibility of model.I did have the book for a long time now and know it will be a good resource one day.The handle can have so many form.The more typical italian fan  is the flag fan but I must admit I didn't like it much.

I thought making my own fan from the base : feather and wood.I choose ostrich feather buy from ebay , they look really nice and can be dye if needed.

For the handle , which is not start , I thought I could make mine using my knowledge of woodcarving.After all , I have all the tool required for this.If something doesn't work , I have other piece of wood I could use and having an experimented and talended grandfather who does woodcarving is also a must.He could answer possible question I could have.I must admit I do not know exactly  how I will put the feathers in the wood but this little detail can be seen later.
