So, on the weekend, I made some white chocolate gum paste for the very first time, but when I wanted to use it, it was sooo runny, that I ended up using it as an icing type instead. I had initially planned to make shapes out of it. Can anyone tell me why this could've happened?

I'll be honest, I would never make that recipe. There's no need to buy glucose (too expensive) or to mess with "liquid sugar".
A much simpler and workable recipe is:
