Using Valspar Paint with Primer I painted 2 coats of the base color with a roller brush. Let that dry fully just a few hours or over night. Next mearsure your stripes and tape for the thicker lines. On my fan this was the red stripe.
Be very careful before painting because it can get confusing. To make painting easier I marked x's on the part I needed to paint so I didn't paint the wrong spot. I lined up the other paddles along side and taped the rest up really fast.
