Default Re: baking bows????

I have Stiff-N-Stuff; do I spray the bows/korkers with that BEFORE or AFTER I bake? Will my house go up into flames if I spray with Stiff-N-Stuff, or do you use a different starch spray? I am trying to avoid calling my homeowners insurance people saying that I burnt my house down while baking bows, lol.

So if I was to bake a boutique bow it would make it stiffer and keep the shape better?? I feel a little lost. I usely spray my bows with Aussie hair spray in the can not the bottle and it works great and smells great but the smell makes my hubby very very sick. Some thing about any airosal spray bothers him. SO if I can bake them it would be so much better. I had to make bows for a order the other night and I was not able to spray them because the lady was coming to pick them up and hubby was home the whole time. Good thing it was a friend and she under stood. I told her to spray them and let them dry and they will hold shape.

I would be afraid of putting flammable sprays (ex hair spray) in my oven - but then I know some people who spray their hair and then use a curling iron and their hair hasn't caught on fire

So smart bow bakers, what do you bake your boutique bows at and how long?

When I bake my ribbons for korkers, I spray them with starch, let them dry, and then bake them at 275 for 30 minutes.

I'm guessing that's how you'd do the bows-before attaching them to any clips.

What about the glue? Does the glue melt?

I learned the hard way to NOT let them touch together! The colors bleed!!! Also the printed ribbon is very delicate when baking. Dots will turn color and prints will run. Be careful not to get them too hot. They do turn out so much better when baked.

Do you bake before gluing?
