I normally just used the powdered wilton gumpaste mix whenever I needed it, but today I tried the gum-tex and glucose recipe for a guitar handle.
It's been about 7 hrs and it still seems very soft. I mean, I know I needed to let it air dry for a couple days, but I feel like the other stuff I had been using would have been much drier by now. So does the glucose/gum tex dry as hard? The cake isn't due till Friday so I could still remake it if I had to. There's already a crack from me lifting it up...so I probably will redo anyway

Maybe the gumpaste needs a bit more powdered sugar kneeded into it?

Thank you, I will have to try this next time. I ended up using a foam core decorated in fondant because I was concerned it would break if gumpaste, and the client didn't care if it was edible anyway.
All I can say is I hate the gum tex/glucose mix!
