One of my High School students suggested this cool project. Just happened to have a fan with three blades in my Art room so we went for it one afternoon. The primary colors kind of mix together while it is spinning + it brightens up the Art Room.
For this project you'll need:
-A fan with three blades and able to access the blades to paint
-Primary colors of paint
-brushes (we used foam brushes)
First, you open up your fan so you can access the blades and prepare your paint. It was easy getting inside the fan, but a little trickier to get the fan back together. We painted the blades the primary colors.
Then we put the fan back together.
Lastly, we gave it a whirl. At faster speeds it looked a little brown which makes sense because the primary colors mixed create brown. It looked much prettier at the lower speeds.
This project truly BRIGHTENED my day and so HAPPY it was suggested to me. Hope you give it a try....I think all ages would enjoy this! If I did it again I think I would try just 2 colors so that it would ultimately be a more beautiful color than brown.
