hi craig!
i like to use masking tape, i get the blower wrapped up the way i want it then brush paint it with testors enamal flat black miced with some gloss black, to keep the tape texture and give it a nice sheen.

Instead of using masking tape, why not try athletic tape. It's a cloth material and it can take acrylic paint very well. It also comes in all different colors. Hockey shops would carry it; also most sporting goods places. I use it for making seat belts. Hope this helps.
