Default Starching Question

I think this might be my last question......for today...

When I starch or hairspray, just how stiff is too stiff? I have a couple that you could probably hammer nails with (okay, slight exaggeration) but I'm just not sure how much is too much??

Thanks in advance!

I think it's too much when ribbon doesn't seem like ribbon anymore.

I ran into the hammer and nails issue LOL when using hairspray but not since I've used starch and baked them. Maybe try that. That hairspray is a beast though. I've gotten mixed reviews. Some people love it that "hard" because it holds a great shape... but if people are looking and touching they get kind of freaked out.

So.. I would say just enough to hold the shape but still be pliable

ROFLMAO! One of my ribbons was already kinda stiff off the roll, and by the time I got through with it, it could have caused an awful nasty open wound to a kid's ear!

I did the hairspray thing in the beginning, but then I stopped when I read a post from someone being concerned about her customer's potential allergies - which I hadn't thought of.

Now I do the sta-flo thing, which is working okay, but the hairspray dried faster and I'm very impatient when it comes to waiting games.
