Palm Frond Fan blade fabrication
Commissioned project by my belle, Jasmine Rain to make a matching set of fan staves that would be used as a stage prop needed to be made.
Here’s a closeup of one of the finished staves:
Here’s what the fans look like before they are assembled or palm fronds are added:
Here’s a snapshot of assembling the palm fronds to the staves:
Take a look at the staves after they’ve been assembled and stage ready. The fan on top is the front view and the fan on bottom is the back view to give an idea how they work.
With some very slight adjustment, these will be reliable stage props to make a fan out of anything any performer sees in their minds eye for years. I’m definitely going to be making more of these at some point. I can already tell.
Here’s the beautiful & talented Jasmine Rain assembling the fans before her performance along with some other pictures of the project.
