I made and colored a batch of fondant to make roses but, I can't get it rolled thin enough. Can I add tylose or gumpaste to the fondant at this point?
Yes you can, just knead it in well.
Thank you so much. Would you know how much I would need to add? I have 2 lbs of MMF
I usually add equal parts - 1 pound of fondant to 1 pound of gumpaste. Hope this helps.
I do figure sculpturing so I usually want my fondant to harden well when I do this so I would add 1 tsp. of gumtex powder, which does the same as tylose or cmc, to 1 lb. of fondant. I do think that if you added 1 pkg(1 lb.), of gumpaste to the 2 lbs. of fondant you would like the consistency better for flower making, 1:1 ratio is even better if you have the gumpaste. Gumpaste on it's own works wonderfully too.
OK on the figure sculpture, like an small jungle animal, to you have to prick it to vent it to prevent cracking with the same mix ratio?
Sorry to hijack this thread
I'm not sure what you mean by venting it. I have never pricked or vented anything and I make quite large sculptures 6-8" high. They never crack and dry very nicely, often with a fan on them.
You guys are the best. Thank you all for your help, I really appreciate it.
