I used spray stiffener instead of the liquid kind just because that's what I had in the house. I think this caused to bowl to be floppier. To remedy that, I poured some watered-down Mod Podge all over it while it was still lying on the bowl. Twenty-four hours later, it was ready. Now I use it in my kitchen for all our teas. Very fun.
