Man I want a posse. I'll be working on a couple new two stick's Thursday night if everything goes right, I'm going back home this weekend on Thursday because I have no class Friday so I'll have my basement.

Thoma what do you think? Should the tifo's be split up in a color coded sort of thing. Most of them are going to be white as all of mine are white, you have some white ones, Big Al has some white, etc. Maybe the black and yellow on the edges?
Although there probably are not enough black and yellow to go all the way up the sides. It should still look alright if they are either on the sides or are all mixed together. So maybe just hand them out without any sort of pattern?
If I thought organizing the Eastern Conference thing on the fly drunk was tough, this is going to be interesting. Is the Warzycha banner your working on the size of your Eastern Conference one?
Maybe throw that in the middle bottom, drape it with the white two sticks and then put some yellow and black on the edges of both sides. That might be sick.
I figure to make some large crowd banners as well the week before as my spring break runs from the 21st to like the 30th.
Thanks for doing this man!
Back at it, have enough material to make 10 this week. I'm going to do them during breaks for class and studying. It will be like my therapy.
Going to buy more after this batch. I figure make 10-15 more two sticks, plus a large banner over Spring Break which is the week between Houston Away and Toronto At home.
thoma- when the paint dries on your fabric dose it make the fabric really hard and crusty
I use a exterior latex/acrylic paint for starters. This I've learned holds better on fabric. After you "peel" the banner off the paint cloth underneath, the fabric will be loose. The only time that I had a problem with the paint was when I was attempting to take a photo of the banner in cold temps. The paint on the banner got hard and would crack if moved.
what the fuck is this?
Bad karma heading your way, goon.
Who the hell let this happen?!?!
Looking for someone to help me out.
I have an idea for a Two-Stick Flag that I want to do but I do not have the resources to have the two-stick flag itself made.
So I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to sew the flag up properly and send it to me. I am willing to pay for the materials and shipping.
If somebody is out there who can help me, please PM me and we can discuss further.
Talk to Thoma Gol, if he can't I'd be willing, we've got everything already set up at our place to do two sticks easily. Get back at me later, again tho, ask Thoma first!
I got a projector now. And, my mom gave me some lessons on how to use the sewing machine. So, if Thoma or Blake can't. I would be down since I'm going to be making two sticks Monday anyways.
However, I live in PA. So, that might be a problem.. Won't be in town likely until March 9th. But, if your making the two stick for Toronto, you can use me as a last resort, if both of them can't.
Lol, btw not glad I clicked on this thread. That Guille pic with Chicago gear, not cool lol.
I saw two state of Ohio/Crew flags at the DC game. To be more specific, they were the state of Ohio flags but black/yellow/white and had a "C" where the "O" should go. Did you guys make those and/or where can I get one?
They told me they had them made by the Flag Lady.
Sweet. I'll see if I can get one there. Thanks!
what type of paint ?
I've searched this thread and stuff but just to clarify:
You use latex-acryllic blend paint on the flags ?
i used normal acryllic once that didnt turn out too good.
where can you get it ? any recomendations on the brand ?
This is what I have used to make my banner and two-stick so far:
I buy it at Michael's and it works pretty well for me. Mine will dry a little stiff but it does gain flexibility without flaking off once you move it around a bit.
thanks i'll go pick some up today .... by the way nice looking banners i love the 007
I'm scheming of doing a mass amount. The debate is all the same or various ones.
Seeing this all together in one image is off the charts. Awesome.
This might be the best post ever! Great work.
Thank you. More to come I'm sure.
