I've been making crocheted earrings lately and thought they'd be a good addition to my shop. I can make regular beaded jewellery as well, but am loving that I can use my crochet instead. I made a few test earrings and used a different starching technique on each one to see how they held up.
Here are the results!
This was easy to use. I added this to my list after reading a blog post about it here - Niche Fashion Portfolio. All you do is squeeze it on and saturate the earring. Place between a towel and press to get out any excess liquid, and then block and dry.
The results for this were pretty much equal to the Fray Check results, but with the inclusion of a lovely glue odour. Moving on...
I figured I might as well use my spray starch to see how that would measure up. Quick and easy and smells good too!
Much better! Firm but still a little flexible, no odour, good colour and definitely the winner. I just store the solution in the fridge and heat up a little before using so its easier to work with.
Now I can move on from my testing and make earrings to sell! The red ones are mine though. hehe
