Default Re: Twisted bow help

I starch and bake all of my bows...I feel like it helps them hold their shape even after many wearings by my girls. After I shape my bow, I spray it with Sta Flo diluted with just a little water, then place it on the tray, reshape it just a bit, and bake it at 275 for 20-25 minutes, depending on how flimsy the ribbon feels before the baking. I have found that the higher quality ribbon really makes a difference in how my twisteds turned out. I could never get them with HL ribbon, but I can make them no problem with my ribbon from Hairbow Center and HipGirl. Maybe I just wasn't good enough yet with the HL ribbon, I don't know! HTH
