You may need to soak the lace after finish into starch, here is the guide: Place two cups of sugar and one cup of water in a saucepan. Stir the mixture constantly and heat it on the stove just until the sugar dissolves. Be very careful, as the solution is hot! Remove the pan from the heat and soak the crocheted bowl in the solution, using tongs to make sure the bowl is saturated. Let the solution cool slightly. With the tongs, remove the crocheted bowl from the saucepan, squeezing it as much as possible to remove any excess solution. Drape it over the bowl form, stretching it into shape with the tongs as desired. You can further shape the crocheted bowl with your fingers in a few minutes when the piece has cooled somewhat. Let the bowl dry for three days or until it is hard. Once the yarn returns to its original color, the bowl is starched and ready for use.
