Default Re: Should I bake? starch? thanks!

I starch & bake every twisted boutique or layer in a stacked boutique. I use a hair dryer to help shape organza.

For a pre-baking starch, I use sta-flo diluted half with water. For a finishing spray, I use faultless starch spray. I only use finishing spray on my korkers. Hairspray won't work where I live. It rains here & is really humid. My bows would be a sticky mess!

I would say, if you're not happy with the perkiness, starch away! I wouldn't bake anything with hot glue though. It will melt the glue and things will come apart or become discolored by the glue.
