  • Tail Fan Making

    I'm looking for ideas on making a new tail fan!
    I know how to make, but looking for new ideas.
    I have two tails - a golden eagle and a bald eagle.
    Need ideas right away.
    Pictures would be good.

    Hey, send one of those tails my way and I'll make you a keeeeen fan outta the other one! haha! :Crazy

    Seriously, check in the general crafts forum.... I think there was a thread about this not too long ago. Also search all of Str8dancerinAZ's posts.... I know he contributed to that fan-making thread and he makes some killer tail fans, w/ nice beadwork, little featherwork touches, threadwork, and all that kinda stuff. I thnk he even posted some pics of a couple of his fans too that you might be able to cop some ideas off of.

    But of course, you can always try my first offer! haha....
    Functionless art is simply tolerated vandalism.

      You can ask "Dennisined" he is the one who made the fan for myself, or take a look in my picture gallery. Also you can ask BlackBear, as she is a wealth of information.

        get with powwowbum 49 as well, he does some killer work. i'm sure he'd be willing to help out.

          yeah i would suggest bum or straightdanceaz on the fans before myself. I've only made a few and they don't look quite like what you probably want. Mine have been rather plain (however attractive).
          Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

            I figured this type of thread belongs here rather in jingle area...maybe someone here can help this person out?(See message below)

            Also in this thread can someone make tutorials on how to make: flat fan, wing fan, drop fan,tail fan etc...? this would be a big help to those who use fans...

            fan decorating
            by Powwowhoney4life
            I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to decorate a fan. I have noticed some pictures of fans that have thread and feather work done on them. I am wanting to learn how to decorate my own fan. If anyone could give me some pointers I would really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch- Look forward to hearing...
