Default Seeking Unique Blades

I am seeking some unique 600mm blades. Anyone know where I can find some, without making them myself? Which i have thought of.

I have some rather unique crashed blades but I'm afraid whats left is only good for stirring paint.

What do you mean by "unique" in this case?

As in the color scheme of the blades.

I'd suggest just making them as you've thought of. Get you an airbrush, compressor and go to town. You'll probably have to clear coat them. Go to the paining section here and ask what those guys do.

That is what I am going to be doing when it comes time for that. Been talking to other folks and all the blades I have seen that I like have been painted. So I will just be making my own

what about vinal? You could always find some very thin vinal and print your own.

Testers has a kit that is that thin decal material that you can use in a printer. It's not cheap but could be a place to start.

Though this stuff does have adhesive, you'd still have to clear coat them to make sure they don't peal.
