Decide what colors you want. I went with black as the main color, and yellow for the tips. The color is really up to you.

Step 3: Let There Be Paint!

I painted the blades black first, then added the yellow later. I used black Valspar interior/exterior for the main color. For the tips I used an yellow acrylic hobby paint from hobby lobby. It was about a 1:50. I had the Valspar in the garage.

Step 4: Mask the The Edges.
