Default Do you starch your bows and spikes?

I used to starch mine when I first started but then realized I didn't really need to. The only thing with stacked bows with spikes- my spikes don't sit perfectly when I put them in my girls hair. Maybe no bows sit perfectly but I don't know because I have never bought any!! I don't know if that makes sense but any advice would help

I lightly stiffen my layered bows.

Do you have a pic for us to take a look at?

I haven't made many bows yet, but I use fabric stiffener on most of them (except the pony-o's). I find it gives them a crisper look.

Also, it's been my experience that the stiffener darkens the colors somewhat. I had two identical bows sitting side-by-side.. one sprayed, one not.. and the colors were slightly different.
