Default Baking your bows

Hello! I've read quite a bit on starching and spraying your bows and baking them. Can anyone tell me if you would only be baking/spraying the bottom layer or the large bow and not the layers once the bow is put together? I would assume if you put the bow in complete other materials and the glue would melt in the oven, so is it just the bottom layer you are supposed to bake?

Also, any insight or tips on length of time & temperature for baking and for about how many bows? Thanks!

Default Re: Baking your bows

I bake all of my pieces seperately-before I assemble the bow. That way there is no glue on them to melt. I bake mine for about 20-25 minutes at 250 degrees. Also, sometimes if I have the time I just spray them and let them air dry. Or if I am in a hurry I microwave them-30 seconds at a time until dry. HTH!

I try and bake them seperately, but there have been times I have baked the whole bow, minus embellishments. I have never had an issue with glue. When I bake them seperately I do all my pieces...bottom, spikes, surrounds and top bow.

I bake my pieces separately, then assemble my bow and then starch.

(FYI Gr82cre8 - when I click on the link you gave, it says, "sorry - no matches")

Hmm, link must be dynamic. Try searching "baking bows". It gave me 7 pages of results.
