What Will I Get If I Mix Fondant And Gumpaste?

I have to make some Halloween figures (ghosts, pumpkins, etc.) and I have only ever used gumpaste for making figures. I hate the wrinkly "elephant skin" that it gets because it's drying while I'm still molding. I use Wilton pre made gumpaste. I thought I read somewhere that if you mix it with fondant it won't dry as fast, therefore eliminating the wrinkly texture. But will it dry hard enough that my black cats tails and bat wings won't droop?
Do I use a 50/50 ratio?
And will it eventually dry rock hard like gumpaste?
Please help!

you will get a good workable gumpaste that takes longer to dry so it gives u more time to play with

It is called 50/50 paste and yes you mix it 50/50 hence the nickname.
