I seem to always be making gumpaste glue for something and I just hate throwing things away .. it's the frugal-ness in me icon_wink.gif
I was wondering if I really need to? How long can I keep it? (covered of course) and does it need to be refridgerated??

TIA! Gaye

Depending on what your making, you do need it. But it can be kept in the fridge for long periods of time although I usually have mine in an emptied tylose jar and sitting on the counter until its used up. I use tylose and water and it never gets moldy or anything so I usually dont bother to refrigerate it. I keep the lid on it so it doesnt dry out though.

Great Info! Though I meant do I really need to throw it away after each time using it!
So great to know I DONT need to pitch it .. and I will put it in the fridge - as Fl is always to humid to leave anything out! Thank you so much for your answer!!

No problem! Maryland is pretty humid in the summer time also. But Ive never had any problems with leaving it out as long as the cap was on. When I would forget to put the cap on then it would dry out and you could literally peel it out of the container!!!
