Thank you, these are fun to make and are standing tall!

Just beautiful! Are they starched? Is that how they stand up?

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Yes they are starched in cornstarch and it works beautifully. I have had some now for many months and they are just as stiff as the first day. I soak them for about 20 mins and then put them on a mold and use some wax paper in the arms to keep the shape until dry.
Thanks for your kind words.

Got it Patti!

These are indeed BEAUTIFUL. What is the cornstarch mix you use? I have a tree top angel that is getting a bit limp (after 20 years) and would like to re-do her.

How tall are they?

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Thanks, my tall ones are 17 1/2" and the small ones are about 8".
I use one cup of water and 2 tablespoons cornstarch.

Thanks for the recipe. A friend used Elemers Glue mixture to stiffen her's then developed an alergy tot eh glue so stopped making them. I'll have to let her know.

And I have a bag full of crocheted snowflakes that need to be stiffened.

This will do the trick! Happy stiffening!
