| | Re: Starch or No Starch???
I bake and then starch all my bows. I'm very new to this too, and I swear it makes them look so much better. It also gives me peace of mind to know that once someone has worn their bow a few times it's not going to take on a completely different shape.
I bought a ton of instructions when I first started. Most of them were useless or difficult to follow. The things I can't live without now are the Brilliant Bowmaker twisted template, the No Bow No Go templates, and the Gator Bite. They'll turn anyone into a decent bowmaker!!
