Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone can suggest a better glue for gumpaste flowers than the gumglue made with gumpaste and water. I'm trying to make a fantasy flower and I'm having a hard time getting it to stay glued together.

Are the pieces you are trying to glue together wet or dry? Moist gum paste can be glued with the gum glue but dry pieces cannot - they need royal icing.

Ah! Dry. Thank you! I knew there had to be a solution!

I like to use melted chocolate for gluing dry to dry. It sets up immediately.

That's a good idea too Rae. And I even have some white chocolate.

Thank you!!!!
