I agree with Ciara about the balancing also you might find they will attract more dust and not be as smooth of surface and thus not run at their normal speeds but you've already gone and done it so we'll see. However they do look nice while not running.

Thanks I agree Ciara could be right at some point which is about attracting more dust but it can only happen if you use a low quality paint which gets sticky after drying up in which the surface gets rough like rubber and also that happens mostly when you use thick coats that mess up the paint job and about the balancing thing most of the fans of 120mm's i've come across they have magnet rings around the blades inside the center of the fan itself which holds and keeps the balance of the fan so even people who used primer on fans before painting they did'nt noticed any performance drop in speed/spin. I used a high quality laquer paint that is smooth on surface as well as used very thin coats and it's spinning at full speed without any problem so far so painting fans there's hardly any risk involved even if you feel or see that it's effecting on the fan's performance so Kerosene Oil is your best friend than
