If I remember correctly (it's been a while since I made an organza bow), the starch leaves marks (crusty spots). Try just baking them on low heat (200-225ish) for 25 minutes. HTH.

thanks-I assume sheer is considered the same-I can never keep the sheer ribbon from going flat (I buy from rabom)- I guess I will try baking to see if it holds up better

I've starched mine and I never had a problem with spots. You might try one and see if it works for you. I have never done a black or dark color like that. I've done lavender, hot pink, pink, orange, eggplant, and never had issues.

Well, see, here you go (although, if I recall correctly, it was the dark colors I had a problem with). I use 1/2 sta-flo, 1/2 water (not sure if it makes a difference). It sounds like your best bet is to test spot a piece of ribbon and go from there. Good luck
