Making flags for my 54mm AWI troops

I am starting to build a collection of 54mm American War for Independence figures, mostly in plastic
.  AWI troops

So it is time to start making up some flags.  I start by printing the flags out on my laser printer.

Then I use a glue stick to attach it to a sheet of heavy duty foil.

After that I use the glue stick on half the flag and wrap the flag around the pole, in this case made from 16 gauge floral wire, topped with an earring back, both picked up at Michael’s.

A drop of superglue at the top helps to hold it in place.

Once dry, the flag can then be furled in various manners to achieve the rippling in the wind effect.

Overall a quick, easy and inexpensive method to add the flags to the units.
