This resource from Wout Moeman should help you to carve most any kind of prop. It has lots of pictures, and you can download the pdf to peruse it offline: https://docplayer.net/22757703-How-to-carve-a-balsa-prop.html

What kind of research did you do before you carved your props?  There are several good articles on this site as well as some on other sites as well.  Tools are a big help, like a good carving knife and a good sharpener for keeping a good edge on the knife.  Balsa does tend to dull the blade quickly.  Sorry to hear you've had a difficult time!  Don't give up and do a bit more research.
