Even though Kenny's Flight Jacket didn't have an American Flag on it, I'd seen enough authentic flight jackets that did have one, so, using the same de-glazing medium and leather paints as I had used on the Nose Art; I stripped away the color of the leather and finish down to the hide.
I then drew in a flag with a thin black sharpie pen, and added 2-3 coats of leather paint to the stars and bars. I mixed my colors to be more muted in tone, thus they would look more "period like". Then came the antique toning and weatherproofing.
When I finished it, it really had a nice patina and hand made look.
I am fond of this Faux Flag!
