I only bake korkers and Twisted bows, to keep their shape. I use spray starch.

I'll bake them on occasion, but mostly just do the korkers. Sometimes it seems like they get too stiff and I don't like the feel of them then. Generally I'll bake them around 250 for 10-15 minutes

i have never heard of baking bows either. so it is supposed to make them harder so they stay perky? i have made korker bows before and those are the onlys one i knew to bake.

I bake my bows once they are completed (with the glue on them already) and have never had a problem.

I make the bows, soak (SOAK) them in spray starch and back at 250 for about 15 minutes or until dry.

I bake most of mine as well. I spray the spikes and bows with starch and then bake. I bake the spikes for 5 minutes and the bows for about 10 minutes. Then I glue everything together. I use to just spray them with starch and let them dry overnight but it took too long. I may try the hairspray, but i hate the way starch smells once its been in the oven.

Default Re: Baked bows

I bake my twisted boutique bows (all sizes), loopy puff bows (after they are sewn before glue) and of course korkers. I bake my in a toaster oven in my craft room for 15-20 minutes (excluding korkers, I do those in the oven because I can do a whole lot more at a time). I use the faultless brand spray starch on everything.

Reason for baking is to maintain perky loops and beautiful shape. Before I baked everything I just starched. Well my niece was sucking on a bow that I made her for Christmas photos 2 years ago (why my SIL would let her I don't know) and when the bow dried it was ugly, bent and well ugly because it held the last shape she left it in, blehhh. Lesson learned.
