Default Big A$$ OTT Bow Help

Warning the pics are just practice. Ignore the ugly color combo!!!!

I have a customer who wants me to make her a large OTT bow. I have tried to convince her to go somewhere else and get one...but I guess she really likes one of my bows and wants it BIGGER.

I think I found a way to stiffin the spikes w o making the printed ribbon fade (I hate that). i also think I found a way to stiffin the center tbb after I layer the ribbon. In the pics the center bow is not stiff so it's not holding it's shape well.

OK the questions. I turned the base bow (tbb) upside down but I think it looks odd. I think it will push up on the spiked and look sloppy. Any help?
I usually use a pinwheel as a base but want this bow to look super fancy.


I think the center bow should be smaller. Yes?

I think it needs more marabou. I am using 8 inches. Maybe 10?

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!

THANK YOU


UPDATED W NEW PICS

Your base needs to be slightly larger and I would make the spikes longer as well. For your topper bow, you have the symetry right but I would just put two fingers on top and two fingers in the bottom and pull. You can spray your bow down with hairspray to help maintain the shape. HTH!!

Thank you for the replies. I updated w new pics.

I still haven't tried making the base bow bigger yet. I'm much happier w the top bow. I just hope it all lays nicely when 'm done. I started making the spike layer for the finished bow. I'll post a pic when it's done.
