| | Polyester is strange
1. I do NOT understand why some ribbon that is 100% polyester seems to work great making korkers, while others just doesn't work.
2. Maybe it's because some that I am using are 1/4 inch or 1/8 inch? Some are shiny while others aren't, some are grosgrain and others aren't? I mean I am making sure I evenly put the starch on before putting them in the oven and have tried to problem solve this with other things.
3. Also, it seem the smaller the ribbon ( meaning 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch) the harder it is to NOT get kinks (meaning the loop turns the other way) when taking them off the dowel.
I think I read that after using the dowels a few times, they should slide off the dowel after being in the oven and cooling, real easy. I'm not finding this with all of them. Some spots seem to stick a little bit usually.
I am making sure I have 100% polyester.
