I am making a graduation cap out of gumpaste. Will it harden quicker if I put it in the freezer for a bit?

Never tried gumpaste in the freezer but I have used the hair dryer on the cold setting. I have also put it in front of a fan or the air conditioner.

No, it won't harden in the freezer. There is too much moisture in the freezer. I would put it in the oven with just the oven light on.

Good luck

I have not heard anything about putting it in the freezer either, sorry. But it does not take that long to get hard, good luck

It depends how big it is, I made a shoe out of gumpaste and it dried in about 3 hours or so, so I think if u are making it now depending on the size it will be fine,hope it all turns out well
