spray paint advice for a fan

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
looking for some advice, what type of spray paint is needed?

I've got some junk cooler master fans that just collect dust I want to practice my spraying skills on,

i figure i should wipe it down with some rubbing or iso alcohol, then just paint with some type of primer+paint? light even coats..

or should i get a seperate primer then paint|?

Can you paint a fan ? I mean can you do it without risking to corrupt the balance of the wings ? I suppose not but maybe someone has better advise ...

painting a fan is perfectly fine if you do it correctly, look at lutro0's guide on it.
