Default which bows do you starch and bake?

I made some pinwheels and while they look nice if i scrunch them up (as would a child) when it comes back out again it isn't as pretty, perky, and even looking...(until i fix it). A customer wouldn't know how to fix it...

Should I bake them and starch them so that they keep their shape?

do you only bake and starch korkers and twisteds?

Do you guys spray the whole thing all over? If so how wet do you make it? I know you do it before you add the glue and clip and all that so the glue doesn't melt. What type of starch also? I have some light body starch but I don't think it works well

I lightly spray with hairspray when I'm completely done making the bows. Then I don't have to worry about glue melting and the hairspray holds well and smells nice, too.

Thats a good question. I have only been doing my Korkers and Loopy Bows. I made my first Spiked/firecraker Bow or whatever they are called last night, does everyone starch them also?

sta-flo starch is the best. i bake mine then pull them out and starch them and then put them back in for a few minutes. when i starch mine i get a pretty good coat on them but have noticed if you are working with thinnner less stiff ribbon like ub if you put too much on the weight of it sort of tends to weight the loops down and they arent as round. if after that first coat of starch they arent quite as stiff as you'd like you can spray them again. sorry so long
