Default How do I "bend" ribbon

What do you use to make ribbon "bend" I have seen some designs were the ribbon is wavy. What do you use as a stiffener to get the ribbon to hold a wave? Do you bake it? If so what would you use to create the wave. I have made korkers so I understand wrapping them on the dowels, but how would I just create a wave?

I hope I am making sense. I can see so clearly in my head what I want to do, but I am not sure it is translating well to text.

I'm looking for an example, of course now that I want one I can't find one. I will keep looking.

I saw it on a ribbon sculpture for the skirt. Imagine a girl sculpture with several straight ribbons making up the skirt. Now imagine those ribbons with a slight wave to them. I will keep looking to see if I can find a picture.

Can't you just read my mind, it would be so much easier. LOL

It sounds like you're talking about Double Ruffle Ribbon. Search that & see if it's what you mean.

Nope, not that. I see that actually in the ad below this post It was definitely a grosgrain 3/8" ribbon. The wave/bend was the whole ribbon and not as wavy as the ruffle.

Ugh I gotta find that picture.

If you hold the ribbon over a lighter/candle than it will bend. Flip it over and do the other side and you'll get a wave. I'm not sure if that's what you're talking about but it is worth a shot.

Yeah, that was my first thought, too, but it looks like it's not that.

Keep looking for that pic
