| | Korker 911 Help!!!!
I just cannot figure out how to solve this korker problem!
When I am making korkers, I wrap 3/8" ribbon on 1/4" dowels. I spray them really good with heavy starch before I bake them. I bake them at 225 degrees for about 30 minutes then I spray them with starch again and allow to cool/dry.
When I take them off of the dowels, some of the korked ribbon ends become "loose" curls. Not all of my korked ribbon does this, but I would say about a third of them do this. They will be nice and tightly korked in the middle and then one end will have a larger curl.
What am I doing wrong? How can I solve this? I end up having to cut about 2 inches off the end of my korked ribbon because the curl is too big and sloppy looking.
