I mix one teaspoon per 8oz of fondant. Just knead it in. It will make the fondant dry firmer so it can easily be used for bows ribbons and flowers.

It goes a very long way so I use it to make my own glue now too, the instructions are on the side of the pot. So much cheaper than buying it!

If you think you have put too much tylose powder into the fondant and it is hard as a rock, mix some of this with an equal amount of fondant (you might have to microwave it a few seconds) . Let it rest a few minutes, and you should have a more workable mixture.

Hi Katie

On my pot of tylo the instructions say...

Mix 30 parts water to 1 part tylo powder (mix will look lumpy to start) Leave over night and you'll have clear thickish gel. Add more water to obtain the consistency you require.

I think I only used about a quarter of a teaspoon of powder with about 8 teaspoons of water to start off.

Yes you can mix it with MMF.
