I know I've read dozens of posts on this subject but I can't seem to find anything right now by searching.
What can I use to glue some small gumpaste/fondant dots to gumpaste/fondant bows and flowers that have already hardened? I seem to recall mixing gumtex with water or maybe gum paste with water? I don't want to make up a batch of royal icing if there's another solution.
TIA~

You can dissolve just a bit of fondant or gumpaste in water to make the glue, or you can use Tylose and water to make a glue.

Sometimes it's hard to glue dried gumpaste onto something. I suggest you use melted chocolate.

Since its just small dots on a bow, gumpaste in water is just fine but otherwise I would have recommended royal icing for stability.

i use the CMC/Tylose with boiled water (make sure its boiled to steralise) but sometimes to stick dries things like bow loops ets i use RI so that it also provides support when dry icon_smile.gif sometimes i need to hold in place with skewers, once the Ri is dried you can then remove the skewers and paych the hole this is really good for adding bows to the sides of your cakes
