Is Pastillage (sp??) the same as gumpaste??? I received instructions from a fellow CC'er to make coral by drying it out in the microwave. Will this work with gumpaste as well?? I really like the look of it.

No, pastillage isn't the same as gumpaste. It has no ingredients in it to encourage elasticity. It's designed to dry faster and harder than gumpaste, especially in thick/heavy pieces used for support.

The article in the link below is extremely informative in this regard.
