Does anyone know what I can do to help my bow made out of 50/50 mmf + gumpaste dry a little faster? And what to do the help it not stick to the plate? Thanks!

The best way I have found is to set a fan close by and let it blow on it. Sticking to the plate....I set them on saran wrap or wax paper and don't worry about it. (I tried a dehydrator and that was a mess IMO - didn't work for me)

What I do is stick it in the oven on a piece of parchment paper with just the light on (no heat) and it dries about twice as fast this way for me.

If you are sure that no one will touch the oven, you can put it in the oven with the light on. It makes the oven a little warm, but not hot, and the oven is usually a nice dry atmosphere.

definitely make sure no one touches the oven or else you could end up with this...
