I know this is an be a touchy subject. But depending on your recipe, adding tylose to fondant doesn't turn it into gumpaste necessarily. However, it will make it have some gumpaste properties. I would say, yes, you can add it now.

If you have tylose, you could have just made a gumpaste recipe using tylose (Nickolaus Lodge has a great recipe). But I guess it depends on what you are making and if you needed fondant also. Sorry, this got a little wordy didn't it...

This is the recipe that I use for my fondant. It is easy to use. When I need gumpaste I simply use this fondant and add some tylose powder to it or add some of the Wilton gumpaste powder that I have.

I think the ratio is 1 teaspoon of Tylose powder to 8 oz of fondant.
