I've just used the starch and then bake them for a 15 mins at 250. Just enough heat to help them dry and makes them stiff. I never have a problem with the glue melting with such low heat.

And, I've never even thought about Aqua Net and if you think about it, if it could hold the ladies hair in a perminate position by in the 80's then it def. could do the trick for bows! lol

Hahaha, I'm old enough to remember and have used AquaNet. I also used it in college as a spray fix on my charcoal drawings!

For bows, though, I uses Aleen's Stiffen Quick. It works well for me. I just put my bows on a piece of cardboard and spray (before adding centers or the centers get spray marks on them).
