Default antennas with purple ribbon

I make lots of ribbon sculptures. Right now I am making a ton of butterflies for my fall show. I make great antennas (if I do say so myself) except when it comes to purple ribbon. For some reason that color always melts funny and curves strangely. Does anyone else fight with purple? Any tricks for that particular color? The only other color that sometimes gives me trouble is white.

I don't make the little cute bug sculptures so I can't really be of much help here. I am not sure why one color would give you trouble unless it is made by a different brand. Maybe someone else who does this can give you more information about this.

Hmmm... Can't say I've run into that, and I'm sure I've made purple ones, and I know I've made white ones. Could it be your purple ribbon is a different brand of ribbon?? That would be the only reason I could think of why it might not burn the same as the others.

Nope. Same brand. I have actually tried both schiff and offray and both give me trouble with purple. Go figure!

Sometimes dyes react funny, I know when I make my itty bitty korkers the colors with more pigment in them (black, green, dark purple) kork sooo much tighter than the lighter colors (pink, white, etc). The only thing I can think of is to apply less heat to the ribbon, hth.
