A pic of a pic before I started. I usually take pics of projects and they go with the fans to the owners.

An AFCA member asked me to do these for him and his wife in candy apple red metallic, gold blades with black powder coated cages. I said thats gonna be a LOT of bling, are you sure'? YES! One badge was incomplete at time pic was take I was trying to decide on should one be different or both the same? I did them both the same.

I was very pleased with these but a LOT of effort to make them really extra nice!

Love that red/gold combo! I should have had you paint mine... I can live with a high degree of bling!

I was skepticle at first about the color scheme but the finished product blew me away! I was thinking ' that's a lot of red metallic' maybe TOO MUCH bling?   The bases were cast aluminum I got them good-n clean and shiny before the paint and did the same with the steel parts which I believe helped give the red a much deeper and richer look beginning over a shiny surface rather than just a clean surface. After the last coat of clear they looked like real candy not just for the eyes! Thanks everybody for all the nice comments every fan I cook up gets all my 100% effort.
