I need help making banners. Yes, I know that some banners come pre- fab, but I really don't like having banners that are hard plastic or metal. I would rather make them from paper or thickened paper. The question is, does anyone have a preferred type of paper or a way to make it look weathered and rustling? The last thing I want is a flat, straight piece of flimsy paper hanging from a banner pole. Any help would be appreciated.

if you run a blade or scissors over the paper you can make it curl (dont do it too much though or it will curl right over) works best for pennants etc.

You can use pencils or other tube shaped objects to get a desired bend. If you apply a light coat of white glue over the surface it will harden it enough to retain the shape. I would water down the white glue rather than brush it straight on.
The banner below was made using just regular paper. I created the runes and painted it then curled it on a rod. Once this was done I applied white glue that was cut with water.

Alternately.. How to make green stuff banners:
You will need:
Green stuff (der)
Oil (I use sunflower oil, but any slear oil is acceptable)
Craft knife (very sharp)
steel rule and posibly a pencil
1. lay out the baking paper draw the banner you want on one side (the fone face downwards) and coat the other side with a thin coat of oil (to stop the green stuff sticking) - paper should be oil side up
2. Mix green stuff
3. place a blob of gree stuff on the paper, well off centre and then fold the paper in half, so the green stuff is sanwidged
4. Roll the thin on a flat sufface with the rolling pin until the green stuff is as thin as you want it
5. I usually leave the green stuff for at least an hour to partially cure before the next step
6. using the steel rule and the sharp craft knife, cut out the banner, baking paper and all
7. carefully, remove one side of the baking paper, attach the banner to the standard using super glue, then remove th other stuff - note if the GS has not hardened enough, or you have not applied enough oil, or your knife was not sharp enough, you have to be very carefull not to stretch and distort the green stuff when removing the paper)
8 position the stadard with the GS dangling in the direction you want, you can make ripple etc by gently pushing in the area you want and then shupporting the riples whilst the GS cures
9 leave to cure. once fully cured, clean off the oil with warm soapy water
There, hope that helps
im about to make greenstuff banners for my WE army. I see a lack in banners on armiesd these days. Anyway im gona have to take that advice into account seeing as Green stuff is probably the best option. thanks
