Can I substitute gum-tex for tylose powder when I want my fondant figure to dry harder? What are their differences?

Can I make edible glue out of gum-tex like I can with tylose powder?

Yes you can. It does the same thing basicly. Makes your fondant more like gumpaste but still gives you time to work with it before it dries out.

So gum-tex dries faster than tylose powder? Does it also dry harder? Which one will you prefer to work with?

IMO, Tylose is a faster drying, much stronger drying agent than Gum-Tex. If you need plenty of work time, go with Gum-Tex.
