Hi everyone! Today i will be showing you how to make a colorful fan. So lets get started!

Step 1: What Your Going to Need

Picture of What Your Going to Need

So to start i am using a three blade fan if your fan has more than three blade that just means that you add more colors. And after experimenting with this i found out that lighter colors are better.

1 paint brush
3-5 of the primary colors
1 fan

Step 2: Step 1

Take of the part of the fan that is covering the blades.

Then make sure your blades are nice and clean because if its a old fan it mite have so dust on it witch will not allow the paint to stick.

Step 4: Step 3

Then let dry for about 10 to 30 minutes. And something i found to help speed up the drying process was to put your painted fan in front of a normal fan.

Step 8: Done!

I wonder how it would look if you did an Ombré treatment on the blades, kinda like this guy did on his phone:

Cool 'ible!

Yes laffinm it is a little brighter and if you use brighter colors it looks even better.

This is pretty cool. Does it look different in person rather than on camera?

nicely done! a few years ago my friends and i did a big 36" fan, but spiraled the colors. did a white base coat since the blades were red, then got the neon sprau paint out.
