How do I remove grommets from fan blades so I can paint them?

I am spray painting my ceiling fan blades white.  I've removed them, cleaned, sanded.  However, there are rubber grommets that were around the screws on the hardware.  Do I need to remove them before I spray paint, and, if so, how do I remove them?

Howdy Sanski,


                   

For starters, you can paint the "rubber grommets".  It is not a good idea to purposely put too much paint on the rubber washers/grommets.


Another idea is to use some scissors to cut masking tape in the shape of the grommets and cover them when you paint.


Lastly, you could use a small flat-head screwdriver to take the rubber grommets out as well.



happy fanning,
