Hi, gumpaste dries very quickly. When you use it, take the amount you need for the moment and put the rest in a bag. You also can mix 50/50 fondant and gumpaste mix. That will dry hard, but it will give you time to do your work. icon_smile.gif

Most of the time I buy precoloured gumpaste and fondant. If there is an unusual colour that I want to make, then I use paste colour to colour them.
