When making gumpaste figururines I like to do the body parts one by one so they dont droop. But how do you attatch them to each other once there dried. I tried edible glue, don't know if I didnt use enough but didn't always stick. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Which glue do you use? I use some of the gumpaste mixed with water, then support the piece while they dry.

The way to do it is not to wait until they dry. Ty to learn this way, it will be much easy for you once you get the hand of it

I dont allow mine to dry before attaching them to the body, i like them still soft so i can mould them into place and make sure there stuck well, Then , lets say im adding arms, i use foam/sponge supports to keep the arm in place untill it is dry icon_smile.gif
