Default Question about starch.

I have been lurking for quite a while and learning so much. My question is about starch. I am gathering that korkers are twisted onto the dowels, spray starched and then cooked - right?

But bows are made first, then starched and baked or set in the sun.

I guess my question is, When does everyone apply the starch? My bows are really pretty and I am pleased but they just don't look as "perky" as many I have seen on this site. Could it be my ribbon?

Thanks, ladies.

I starch before baking. I have also used hairspray.

I bake and then stach (as they are cooling) They dry fine. You may want to post a picture, because it could also be problems with your technique that make them "droopy" sometimes if the folds arent correct, this will cause the ribbon to sag or the loop to look "off" HTH and good luck
