Default For those who starch their bows.....

Do you starch your bows before you attach them to the clip or after?
Also, what ratio of starch to water do you use?

Default Re: For those who starch their bows.....

I use 50/50 water starch.
I usually starch the parts seperately then build the bow after they are dry. That way your pieces hold their shape and it is easier to see how everything will lie together. Whe I have a rush order I assemble then spray so if need be the customer can take it still damp.
I actually get those orders alot. My friend last week called in labor and on the way to the hospital and needed a bow for her older daughter to wear when she comes to the hospital to meet the baby. So I had little time to make the bow then sent it with her a bit damp still.
In other words...there's no "wrong" way to do it.

I mostly only starch my Korkers, but I do it before I put them on clips because I also bake them. Then I attech to clips and spray one more time. I use the spray starch that comes in an aerosole can, so I just spray straight from can, no mixing. HTH!

i have done them both ways. i have starched and then bake. i usually bake at 250 for about 20 minutes.
and sometimes if its just a twisted bow i will make the bow, attach to the clip then spray with starch.

either way seems fine. hth
