Okay - this is probably stupid (and probably answered elsewhere but I can never get my search function to go past the first page)

I have made MFF (love it btw!!) and want to add some gum tex to just a portion of it to make a plaque. Do I add the gum tex dry, or mix with something before I knead it into the MFF? How do I go about it. I don't need to add it to very much. The plaque isn't huge, but it does need to be sturdy. Tylose isn't readily available or I would've tried that (since it seems to work better according to those who have tried it!).

You add the gum tex to it in powder form and just kneed it.

If I am making a small amount I will take the amount of fondant I am using and just dip it into the powder, kneed, then add more until I get it to the point I want it.
