I use the stiffen stuff and mix it with water. I also use hair spray and regular starch in a can. Never had a problem with a bad smell

I had some flowers that were poofy when the green stem and backing cup were on, but after I took the plastic off to sew them, the back layer kinda drooped a bit.

I first tried spraying the whole flower, but didn't like it...too stiff.

So I flipped the flower upside down, and sprayed the back layer.

After I sprayed, before it dried, I scrunched the flower from the back, sorta with my hand in a cup shape. My hand got gooey, but all that mattered was that the flower looked good

Worked PERFECTLY, especially with Lisa's large peonies
