This recipe is from Lorraine McKay's tutorials. You can also find a few of her videos on youtube. I make a new batch once a week. CMC power is also tylose powder.

Add 2 tablespoons of warm water to a quarter teaspoon of CMC Powder and leave the powder to melt. Dont worry if at this stage the glue appears not to be blending. Put a lid on the container and leave it in the refrigerator overnight and in the
morning you will have a perfectly clear and ready to use glue. The glue should be a dropping consistency. If it is too thick, just add a little more water and stir with a cocktail stick.

CMC powder can be replaced with Tylose powder. Tylose is used to mix with MMF to make gumpaste.

Sorry, I misunderstood your question.

"CMC Powder or sometimes referred to as Super Gum and CMC Gum, amd the technical name Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Gum, or just Cellulose Gum is frequently used as a thickener and a texture ingredient in many applications throughout the food service industry. Food grade and industrial grade CMC Gum is also known as cellulose gum. It is derived from purified cellulose such as cotton linters. CMC Gum helps products retain moisture. CMC Gum is a man made gum."
