Default Making Korker Ribbon Question

I have Sta Flow liquid startch, in the blue jug. The instructions on the back give the mixures for light through extra stiff. With extra stiff being full strength and the mixture for stiff being 50/50.

What do you girls do?

Also, do you spray your ribbon prior to baking or after or both?

What temp and how long do you bake at?

Thanks in advance

I wet my ribbons, then finger press them to get off extra water, hold them on dowel with wooden clotherspins, Then I spray them with spray starch and bake in pre heated oven on alumimun foil line cookie sheet at 250 degrees for about 20 minutes. LET the ribbons cool before taken off pins and off of dowels. I have also learned that sometimes they want to sorta kink up -- I just keep running them through my thumb and fingers and they usually will un kink. Hope this helps.

I use spray starch instead of liquid. After the korkers are secured to dowel I THEN spray them with the spray starch BEFORE baking in the oven. Sorry it too so long to answer was finishing up some turkey bows.

I spray mine with starch, i use the heavy starch in a can, and then bake for 20 mins. If i want really stiff korkers i spray them with hairspray while still warm before taking off the dowels. If i want softer korkers like i use for the sculptures i dont spray the hairspray.
