I've been asked to do a few small scenery pieces (no, I've not posted this in the wrong place) for a friends gaming table, one of the objective markers I'd like to do as a banner, or at least part of a banner. The trouble is I've never done my own banners and I can't quite decide what it should be made of. Thin card or paper just doesn't seem to have the right consistency, it won't look like it's actually hanging there if you know what I mean.
So, what would you recommend, I'd like to be able to achieve quite a raggedy effect so that it looks like a lost battle standard or an emplacement that's been fought over multiple times.
Hm, I havent tried or even seen this yet, but how about tissue paper soaked in PVA glue? Ive seen it used as skin on flayed ones, perhaps it might work as a banner as well... Esp. if its supposed to be an old, ragged banner. Alternatively, you could probably sculpt it, though that depends on how good youre with GS... Hope this helps you a bit, anyway.

GS is my fall back option if I can't find a more natural medium, I'm not terribly confident that I can get it sculpted to the level I'd like (would be good practice for me though).
I hadn't considered PVA and tissue, I'll have to have a try, I've seen it used to imitate webbing so it may work for this as well. Cheers.
GS seems like it would be your best bet, aside from priniting it on paper. There is a pretty good tutorial on how to make a GS banner in the tutorials thread, if you're interested. Haven't tried it myself, but I probably will in the near future.
