Default Korkers and colours 'bleeding'

Last night I had wrapped a huge amount of ribbon around dowling to make my korker bows, but after I took them out of the oven the colours had 'bleed' I had white next to red (they weren't even touching!!!) but the white came out pink! I was so mad Anyways, I wanted to know if I buy swiss dot or polka dot ribbon with white dots, with all the colours just bleed into the white? I don't want to waste my money if this will happen....anyone know? THanks

I have had this happen before. When I do swiss dots I cook at a lower temp for a little longer.

This has only happened to me when I use ribbon from UB, I will no longer buy it, just for this reason.

I haven't had my swiss dot ribbon bleed, but I have had the dots stick to the dowel! I think I'll try a lower temp as pp mentioned. Maybe just cook them completely seperately? I also have to keep certain dowels just for certain colors (like red) because the ribbon bleeds into the dowel and then subsequently the dye bleeds into whatever ribbon was on there next. hth!

I think it just depends on the ribbon. I had some red with white hearts bleed once. It was ribbon I got from someone on ebay (not the best quality) Never had issues with others though.

I have also had swiss dots stick to the dowel, but no bleeding. When I do light and dark colors, I put them on seperate trays. I've always been afraid of that happening to me.

I think cheaper ribbon does this. This is one of the reasons I am not fond of UB.
