Default Do you starch mini bows?

I have read all the threads about starching and stiffing bows....well most of them. I would like to know if everyone starches mini bows. I am still new at doing bows and starched some mini bows and they feel too hard in my opinion. I think they look better without the starch but I am worry about they loosing their shape.

ever since I learned about starching & baking (from the lovely ladies here!) I have found that I prefer to do everything--mini through large b/c I love the crisp look, and detest my old, floppy pre-HG forum bows!

I starch mine too. Maybe you can do a very light misting of starch or mix the starch with water?
