First, we draw the theme we want to paint over the fan, or we can trace one.
The fan needs to be steady (fixed). You can do this with your hand or you can even nail it to wood with pins or tacks. We will se more of this in our next lesson.
If you trace it, transfer the picture as if you were transferring it to another piece of paper. Again, I recommend using tailoring tracing paper (yellow or blue) so there won't be any traces left.
The other option is painting directly with a graphite pencil.
