prototype or two are going to be undecorated until I'm sure I have
something that behaves more fanlike!

I did update my process notes last night so I can remember what works
and what doesn't - and yes, I WILL share them when I have a resulting
fan that works well.
I discovered that the link to the Kyoto National Museum's sutra fans

(as well as some other Japanese art):
These babies date from the 11th century and probably never actually
got mounted as fans. Cool stuff.
