What's the difference between tylose and gum-tex?
I am sure no expert, but I can tell you my experience with tylose and gum tex. The gum tex I really get annoyed with. The gum paste that I make with it is soft and dry and has no pliability to it. Now, that may be because of me, but the Nicholas Lodge recipe I make with tylose is perfect! White and pliable and easy to work with.
I have read/been told that GumTex makes it more like pastilige(sp?) but when I posted that on this site someone said no way so now I don't know However, what gerripje said is my experience too.
Hmmm, I don't know exactly what pastillage is supposed to be like, but the gum tex gum paste or added to fondant just doesn't seem to be as 'rubbery' if that makes any sense. Since I am as cheap as they come, I keep trying to find a use for the gum tex gum paste. It did make really smooth centers for calla lilies, or I just use it as a name plaque and make sure I give it lots and lots of time to dry. Things that don't need to be thin and delicate like petals! HTH and makes sense!
Thanks for the help, gals!
