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).

Heehee, do you remember Aleene's shows with Heidi and Tiffany?

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
Thats exactly what my mother said "use aqua net" LOL

I usually only starch my korkers - and those I let air dry while they hang upside down because (1) I seem to have problems with them scorching and (2) they come out puffier while drying upside down.

I starched and baked some big boutique bows on Wednesday and the starch left blotches on my bows when they were done - even though the whole bow was wet when I put it in the oven. I'm wondering if I didn't shake the diluted starch enough before I sprayed it? On the upside, they did not scorch and the glue did not melt (I baked them at 250 for 13 minutes).
