2. tape off your union jack. using a measuring tape helps. find the center and fill center stripe with tape. then tape around that, and peel the middle away.

ps. i got the not on purpose but so cool chipped gold on gold look because I did 2 coats of 2 different gold spray paints, and then put the tape on before it was completely dry. whoops.
