Default 2 quick ?'s

Hi!

2 questions for all of you:

1) What temp is your oven when you bake Korkers? I've seen anywhere from 220 to 275; I know all ovens are different but 275 seemed high to me.

2) Can you heat seal velvet ribbon with a lighter?

Thanks!

I put my toaster oven on 225 to bake my korkers. I haven't worked with velvet yet so I have no idea.

I've always followed the instructions from the Ribbon Queen on Ebay. Here's the link.
RibbonQueen.com

I've never had problems with melting or burning. Good luck

THank you ladies! I decided to play it chicken (err, safe) and not heat seal the velvet - it said 100% rayon so I was nervous. I was making a clippie for DD to wear when she visits her dad - they always get lost there so if it frays it won't matter.

THanks for the advice for the korkers too I will be "baking" today!

Here is the velvet clippie


Thank you again!

When I heat seal velvet ribbon, I just hold the end close to the flame. You'll see it melt really fast. I was afraid that it was going to explode into huge flames the first time I tried it, but it didn't.

I do my krokers at 275 for 25 mins. They seem to stay better. I woudn't use a lighter for velvet. It turns it black at he ends I find. I use a quick swip of my wood burner.
