Default which part almost burned my house down?

so... im new to bowmaking and when i read to starch and bake my bows i was a little confused. im not great in the kitchen at all... anyway... i put my bow on waxed paper (we dont have cookie sheet/parchment paper here in south africa i dont think)... then I used spray starch on my bow and put it in the oven ... 5 minutes later there was smoke everywhere ...

so ... which part was the problem...
wax paper? can wax paper not go in the oven? (hehe, sorry if that sounds dumb but really.. i dont know)
or...
was it the starch?

try linning your oven rack with foil and plave your bows on that.

lol...i would say it was the wax paper, i use starch on mine in the oven just fine, I dont use anything on my cookie sheet i just use clothes pins like the clippie kind you use on clothes lines to hold mine and stand them up in the oven. hth

A cookie sheet is not actually a sheet of anything, it is a pan...like this!

Hope that helps a little!

lol thanks... and that HAD to happen around 5.30 when most ppl get home from work... and as they come into the hallway they probably think "oh No... look at that steam... poor thing, she tried to bake" hehe..

can i not put it on a flat pan and put aluminum over it and then the bow over that

Yep, you can put it directly on the cookie sheet. BE CAREFUL...bows can be pretty dangerous!
