Default Re: Professional bow makers please HELP..

Starching is important when you need a bow to keep its shape. If you want to attempt a TBB in 2" or larger ribbon, you are going to end up with a very floppy bow. If you are trying to achieve a relaxed look, and not have it fly all over the place, you can starch it, then shape it to how you want it to look while it's still wet, and then it will dry into that shape. For something that large, you might want a higher concentration of starch to water though.
