I love MMF for everything except making bows and 3-D figures--it's too soft and down here in the South, it doesn't dry well.
I just bought some Tylose powder in hopes that I can mix it into my MMF when I need to have it harden up and dry faster.
Can someone help explain how to incorporate Tylose powder into already made MMF? Is this something that can be done?
Thanks!

Aine2 has a tutorial video on adding Tylose to fondant at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQtehRE7VQw&feature=channel_page. I hope this comes through for you. HTH

I'm a lil' new at this soooo what I do is add about 1tsp to approx 12 oz of MMf knead it in and let it sit over night

I have also just sprinkled a small amont of the tylose into the fondant that I need to work with and started molding about 20 mins or sooo later

I hope this helps
