I'm making 30 small figurines from fondant and MMF... frogs, ladybugs, worms, dragon flies, etc... normally when I "glue" the pieces together (like the arms and legs to the body) I just use water. These particular figures are traveling all the way to South Africa (from Southern California). The lady that ordered them is carrying them on the plane with her...

anyway... is there a "glue" I should be using instead of plain water that will hold better??

TIA!!!

You can desolve a tiny bit of fondant in warm water and use that as the glue. Or you can use egg white. And the other thing that you can use is sugar glue. Here is a link to making it,

Hi,

In our Wilton class, they told us to use a little bit of gum paste (you can buy it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby) and some water.

It's really strong!

I use a small amount of tylose powder (just a little) with water and mix it. It will thicken quickly and works wonderfully. It's the best glue I've ever used.
