I always pour the stiffen stuff into another spray bottle because the pump always sticks....also I mix stiffen stuff with 50/50 sta-flo works great for baking korkers. And just FYI be sure to sand down your dowels before use, then your ribbon slides right off. I used one of those white nail buffers...perfect!

I've been using Auquenet hairspray and it works good but I may have to try this...but why do you bake? With the hairspray I shape then spray and it holds its shape...

I am just starting to make bows, and will hopefully be trying to get in some craft shows before the holidays. I have been wondering what everyone does to starch/stiffen the bows. I sure do appreciate all the great advice here! So do most of you starch the parts of the bows before assembly? Thanks so much!

I starch and bake the layers individually before layering. For my spikes, I starch after baking to minimize color transfer.

this is some what a OT, but i was mixing my sta flo up the other day and we have two kittens left from a litter that our spayed cat had. dang pet land. any who mila was up there and of course she was attacking anything and everything that moved. im not really sure even how it all hapened but the next thing i know my staflow that is undiluted is on the cat and all over the floor. it took me three times of watching the cat after i caught her to get it mostly out. her hair to this day is still a little stiff. hope that made you all laugh. again sorry for getting off topic.
