The Wilton gumpaste is not white, and when I add gumtex to white fondant it is no longer white. Is there white gumpaste? How do I make gum paste white? Is there such a thing??
try coloring it with white paste/gel food coloring by Wiltons..
platinum paste is more white, IMO
Satin Ice is white and very easy to work with.

I forgot about Satin Ice! I agree that it is very easy to work with. Comes in a pretty good size too. Available at GSA
Looks pretty white to me...especially when it's dry!
You might try Americolor gel white to mix in if you don't think it is white enough.

I thought Satin Ice is only Fondant ? I didn't know it also comes in gum paste .
Satin Ice makes gumpaste too. It's much softer than the homemade, tylose version and I didn't have good luck with it in the humidity here.
For the original question, order some tylose and make your own gumpaste. Google Nick Lodge's recipe, it's great and it comes out pure, bright white.
I agree with Texas Rose. I use the Nicholas Lodge recipe with tylose and it works quite well. If I'm in a real hurry, I will occasionally use Wilton's in the pouch rather than mixing the powder in the can. But I will usually add a bit of fondant to it to make it more white. Good luck.
my gumpaste is always white Ive never had to add anything
I never liked the taste of Wilton's gumpaste but just tried Satin Ice gumpaste and it seems real easy to work with and actually tastes good. I added tylose though because I wanted to make sure it's nice and stiff and dry by tomorrow.
Maybe someone can help me, I tried the can mix twice and I can't seem to make it work. It won't hold it's shape, and it sticks no matter how much powder sugar I used.
