Did Karolyn do the colors special for you or was it just a happy coincidence? She does beautiful badge work too.

I’ve been looking for a powder that simulates brass blades! Do you know what make / name of powder was used, and was a clear coat powder applied on top of that?

It is a Candy powder coat. This requires the base metal be polished to a shine prior to coating. No clear coat because the Candy coating is clear.

No Karolyn and Ronnie brought it along for display and I talked them out of it.  I don't think they were intentionally trying to create a Longhorn themed fan.  No matter, I love it and runs great.  They do fabulous work!
Hook Em!!

Psssssssssst………..FWIW....if you powder coat a blade, make sure you spray the powder thin and evenly. If you powder coat a wing to heavy, the wing may affect dynamic balance and cause the fan to vibrate. The only solution is to shave powder from the wing, or strip it and start over. Fact Jack.
