stiffened tulle

Hi!

So I'm doing some set dressing and I bought a bunch of tulle to drape around. I want it to sort of stand up, billowing around like a fog or cotton candy-like nest. What is the best way to get it to stiffen up and yet be pliable?

I was thinking of making a homemade starch out of corn flour and then spraying it when it's time to dress the set. I have a few hours so it can dry but do I need heat? Like, a hair dryer? Or would this absolutely not work at all and there's a better way to do it?

Hair spray works wonders, esp the scary stuff in a purple can that my grandmother uses (Aquanet?). Also, another suggestion is simple spray starch that you can get to use with ironing.

**the starch works best on white or light fabrics**
