Only ever used stiffin stuff, but hate the clogging issue. Thanks for the other ideas!

I have some flowers made from old t-shirts that are really cute and I love the way they look right this minute. I want to spray them with starch and bake them but am afraid that they will droop with the spray even a light spray from far away. Any suggestions? I was thinking about clipping them to the rack upside down, spraying them lightly and putting them in an already warm oven. Does that sound like it would work? I haven't added centers yet and the over has to be warm because they have hot glue in them.

I usually just use water and bake them but sometimes I'll spritz a little liquid starch on.

I use a half-and-half mixture of water and sta-flo and I bake. I usually bake first and then spray as soon as they come out, but you girls have me thinking I'll try spraying before baking next time around.
