| | Re: What do you use to stiffen your bows?
I have always tried to use a good quality ribbon and did not do anything else to tied bows. However, since reading this forum and trying hair spray, I not spray all my hairbows as soon as I make them. For korkers, I wrap around 3/8 inch dowel sticks and bake 30 minutes at 250. Sometimes I spray them with starch before I bake and sometimes I don't. I can't see that it makes any difference.
