Smile How to make bows super stiff?

I am wondering how to make my bows very stiff? I currently use sta flo and water, but it ends up getting soft. Also, it isn't as stiff as I want. Does anyone know how I can make them almost rock hard? Thanks in advance!!

Mine are rock hard, I buy spray stiffner from the craft store like Joanns, I spray them then I bake them in the oven, and once they are done i spray a coat of starch on them right out of the oven and they come out perfect everytime

Ditto! I bought it just to try it but for the life of me I don't like stiff bows. Why do some prefer stiff bows? and I couldn't imagine a rock hard bow...just asking

I use Stiffen Stuff that I got at HL. It makes them SUPER stiff! I use it on my OTT bows and Korker Bows. Also on some of my plain Boutique bows. On my pinwheels and other little bows I just spray with a little hair spray or starch. Just to keep their shape better. I like the Stiffen Stuff to keep my OTT bows and Stacked bows in shape. Some little kids like to pull at the bows and this helps them keep their shape better. HTH!

I use Aleene's stiffen quick! It makes them very stiff even without baking.

I'm a hairsprayer too. I use some cheap spray to get it stiff and then spray it with a light spray of Aussie. I love the smell and so do my customers
