Hi, I am a hobbyist and I used wilton gumtex recipe to make gumpaste flowers which really dried well and I was quite happy with it.
Recently, I have moved to a very hot and humidity area on the sea-shore and have found that this gumpaste does not dry at all and stays soft, infact sticks to my paper. I do use my aircon.

Does tylose withstand humidity better?
Also, I am a vegeatrian so would not be using Nic's recipe here that lots of people favor.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks,
Zamku

You can add tylose to what you already use and it should work. You will have to experiment with the amounts.

Can anyone else shed light on this too? I would be grateful if I can have some more opinions.
