I've meant to try this method of flag production for about a year or so now but simply have not got around to tracking down and placing an order for the type of paper she suggests. Still, this particular video is very interesting and useful for all sorts of little tips about making one's own flags AND making them more convincing.

Stokes,
I watched this film, and bought the recommended paper from Amazon.They were quite expensive, but you got a lot of paper. I have actually followed the ladies information and it does work. Unfortunately I dont have the requisite skills to paint Saxon SYW flags so havent attempted that. The paper is very responsive to bending etc.
If you want I will send you some of my sheets, there is too many to ever use them.
Thanks Robbie.

Great tutorial! Thanks for sharing it! I have tried various methods for doing flags and have yet to find one I'm really happy with. I actually have a few standardbearers who lack standards simply because I haven't been able to give them ones to live up to. ha! I'll have to see if I can find some of this paper or something like it.

Fantastic video. Many thanks for posting it on your blog. I am very tempted to have a go, but my first fear is that my design will be pretty wonky, as my drawing skills are not nearly as good as the lady in the video. She is good...very good!
Best regards,
Simon
