Create pitch on propellor

I have created a rough propellor by tracing an image and then extruding the resulting sketch (https://cad.onshape.com/documents/1aed792aa774cdaaee943bd5/w/679a245b299251ddcafd8810/e/fb9c148bed7176aca9e32cd9). Now, I need to add the curve of the blade. Since this is being used for a quadcopter, the curve needs to gradually become flatter as it moves away from the center hub. Does anyone know how I could go about doing this?

I was thinking of using the Sculpt Face feature (https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/8410/sculpt-surface-update-to-release-3) to shape the blade, but the feature fails every time I try to manipulate the face of the blade. 

Is power surfacing a viable option? I have read a little into it but I'm still not sure what exactly it does, so please do not roast me about this :)

Thank you!
