Aleene's Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid-8 oz. is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Permanent Solution I've been using these on crocheted snowflakes and it's perfect for that. The only problem there is it dries very quickly, and if you have a lot of blocking to do it means working as fast as you can. The instructions do say you can thin it with up to 50 percent water, and it does dry slower if you do this. Be warned, the product is permanent and cannot be washed out. I figured this out the hard way when I used it on red doilies my grandmother made almost 50 years ago. The product left tightly woven areas looking wet and darker. By this time I had let it dry, and I went to the extreme of giving them a quick bath in lacquer thinner. Nothing will get this stuff out. I'm thinking it's acrylic, because once it's dry there's no going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Excellence Crochet items (currently, butterfly-in-frame) must be stiff to hold shape and prevent slipping in frame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from complaint the product itself is great but i am disappointed in the way it was advertised. it shows a 16oz size bottle, and that is what i took the order to be for, so of course i did not look further. i felt that it really was a very good deal, so you can imagine my surprise when i opened the pkg and the bottles were 8oz. i think someone should redo this page because to me that is false advertising. signed: not a happy customer
