Default Baking Bows?

I've seen several people say they bake their bows, and I've heard that it helps hold the shape. Do you do this basically the same way you bake korkers?---275* for 25 minutes? Also, if you are making a layered bow, do you bake the bow layers separately first and then stack them together; or do you assemble the whole thing and then bake it? What about loops....can you bake those; is the hot glue affected at all by the baking?

Default Re: Baking Bows?

I bake my bows, but not at 275!! I do 15 minutes at 220. For layered bows, I do bake each layer individually. I have small glass bowls that I put on the cookie sheet and put the loops upside down on the bowls while I bake them. Glue does have a tendency to come undone when baked, so I don't recommend baking anything that has been glued together.
