Default Re: Stiffen Bows

People use many things. I don't live near a craft store so I used what they had at our Wal-Mart that people recommended (the Sta-Flo). Some people use spray starch (by the laundry soap), some use stiffen stuff, and a variety more. If you live near a craft store, you probably have more options. At Wal-Mart, check by the glues, craft section, or laundry section. I got a huge jug that is going to last forever for about four dollars.

I do not add water. I think that they hold better when they are stiff, not crunchy!

After they are done is when I spray mine. I fluffy and shape and then spray and fluff a little more.

I spray the heck out the korkers I ship My customers that I've shipped to have said that they have arrived perfect (I always ask because I get nervous about sending them )

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Because kids get cancer, too.

So how "wet" do they get when you spray them? How many of you dilute it and which product do you dilute? The aleen's-do you buy it at HL or walmart?
