    Use 200-400 grit sand paper or use tapes.

    BamaJJ, if you don't want to sand your props, you can apply a small piece of clear Scotch tape to the underside of the light side of the prop. I find that's easier than trying to sand them.

    I have very successfully used clear spray paint on the back side of prop. It provides an even thickness and can be applied in seconds. Test balance again after paint dries.
