One year I cut "fan" shapes out of window screen and made a second piece
that was a blob of sculpey in which I had baked three bamboo skewers in a
fan shape. Put the screen on top of the "bamboo Fork" and dip into
papermaking slurry, dry flat. Looked really nice as fans. Wish I could
describe this better visually for you all. Hope you get it.
