I have a 'flag' too. Unfortunately it's packed away and I don't feel like digging it out.

I'll have it up at Tall Ships in Sept. at Dana Pt., and I'll take a pic of it then. ;)

Well...an artist like me is never truly finished designing anything, but here are both of my Jolly Rogers. At least until I change them again.

I'm such a damn perfectionist.

Hoisting my Jolly Roger over our boarding school dorm in 1983

Boarding School?!?

Thanks for the compliments. I also like the crossed pistols best, but you can never have too many jacks.

Aye.

Nay .. I vote fer the bi-color w/ the choppers.

One o me favorite buckos has a blade like that....

Question fer ye all. How many of you actually applique and stich it together?

Or are ye using paint?

I found me a nice piece of black linen while thrifty shoppin' today- I think it may have been a tablecloth....

feelin' like I may have to sew somethin' ...

but paint seems so immediately gratifying...

What kind works best on a loose weave fabric? House paint?

I plan to do both a painted and a sewn version of each. The painted version is going to be about nine by twelve feet.

I'm going to cover a wall with it.

Can anybody suggest the paint they've used?

I'm thinking it need be something like latex house paint to stand up to the weather and not all soak into the black fabric.

I've used a simple outdoor latex paint before on a heavy canvas and it stood up to the rain.

Still, I don't know how well that would weather over time and it isn't terribly authentic.

Yes. Patrick is right. That's the other thing about paint. It won't FLAP.

Banner's and wall hangings should be painted. Of course if it is a little white paint on a black field it isn't so bad, but cloth whips around in a high wind and gives you that all important satisfying flutter.

LOL! :lol:

No disrespect intended, but considered the massive Gibraltar force and the really huge Jolly Roger, they shoulda called us at least via radio and asked us if everything was shipshape!
