Gumtex? Where would I find that? Is that gumpaste you buy from a store? Sorry, I've never actually worked with gumpaste before so not familiar with the terminology. icon_confused.gif

your other option is to make modelling paste according to aine2's method: 250 gr fondant to 1/2 tylose (cmc) powder. this will probably five you more than you need.
