This Tutorial is based on the double sided fabric fans I made for a future Carian cosplay from Magna Carta
If you don&#8217;t need to make a double sided fan I highly recommend you don&#8217;t since it gave me so much grief even more then the stain glass dragon wings in my gallery >_<


I xss=removed>_<

If xss=removed>_&lt;) Now that it&#8217;s laid out correctly you glue the two outside spokes to the fabric with a thin layer of Epoxy glue and let dry.



FINAL your done!!!!!!!

My double sided fabric fans with decals on both sides finished.

Few o.O that was intense to write out >__&lt;

So If you can not tell, if you can buy your fan then do so!!!!
pretty cheap!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! As soon as I have the money for a large base, I'm making one.

I was thinking- hypothetically, the same technique should work for re-covering a paper parasol, correct?

#6 WARPAINTandUnicorns on 10 years ago

Correct although the fabric would end up being thicker then the paper so I might no close as properly or completely.

I used a light weight canvas and painted it black with watered down acrylic, however you can used whaterever fabric you want that you can take an iron too.
