Default How To

Hello does anyone know how good Starch is for stiffening bows & how to mix? Also how do you use your oven to stiffen bows? Also does anyone use Aleenes Fabric & Draping Stiffening for bow making or know how to dilute it for bows? Sorry so many questions I'm new here. Thanks & hugs

I prefer Sta-Flo. If the ribbon is already a little bit stiff, then I dilute it, and use a 50/50 combo. If the ribbon is thin or soft then I use StaFlo without diluting it.

Thanks so much for your help. Do you spray it on? Does it ever stain your ribbon? Hugs, LuLu
