How much fondant and gumtex are we talking about?

Not a lot, just to make 6 average size stars. I sprinkled about 1/2 teaspoon of gumtex in two handfuls of fondant.

ME too Leah. I thought 2-3 hours would be plenty. I would think about adding a bit more gumtex since I'm not wuite sure what you would call a "handful".

I was thinking the same as Leah - how big and how thick are your stars?

I think I've read that you should add 1 teaspoon of gumtex per 3/4 pounds of fondant. I definitely think they should have been dry by now.
