In order to add a hardening agent to fondant, I was told I could add gum tex. The mix on the bottle is 1:4 of water, but, the end result is added to fondant in what ratio?

I don't mix it with water before adding it to fondant. I just add the dry powder to fondant. I don't really measure it either, just go by feel, but I'd say do about a teaspoon to about 12oz or so.
