Default How do you keep your bows fluffed?

I'm not very experienced at bow making but I have been doing it for a few months now and have made quite a few bows. I have been mostly doing pinwheels so there is no real fluffing involved there but I made a boutique bow tonight, one of the double layer ones I found a tut on here for and I'm just wondering how do I keep it fluffed and holding its shape? I can see me fluffing the bow all day long on my toddlers head trying to make it look as good as it does just sitting in front of me. I hope this makes sense??

Just becareful when you startch and bake because some printed ribbon will discolor or bleed. I always take a peice of the ribbon ( a couple inches) and to a test run on it to see.

Thank you. I will pick up some spray starch today. I'm familiar with baking them from doing korkers so I may give that a shot too.

Starch and bake and then starch again. You can even use the hair dryer. I prefer to use a hair dryer on a difficult bow because I am able to work with the shaping while it is getting stiff.

I like Aileen's Stiffen Quick....two coats of that and I've not had the need to bake!
