I just mixed together the gum-tex, glucose, and powdered sugar and set it aside to rest. My question is, Is it supposed to be a beige color or is it supposed to be white?

Hi, i use to make this , when i taught the g/p flowers at michaels. Now, we use the prepackage. the g/p you mixed is not white but the color you said. If you will use the prepackaged next time, you will never go back to making it. Trust me. I love wilton premade and or make nick lodges recipe, which is on the internet. hth
After you knead this you have made, it should be a little lighter in color, the best if remember.

Will it lighten up when i knead in the rest of the powdered sugar or do I need to add coloring to make it white?

im sorry its apparently way to late for me to be typing or reading. lol so ignore the part about will it lighten. Still need to know if adding white coloring will make it a pure white. im making easter lilies and i really need a pure white color.

I made this before and didn't like it because of the color. It seemed dull no matter what color I used (although I didn't try coloring it white). I stick with the premade now.

I make my own g/p and it always looks kind of ivory. It will dry completely white, but if you want REALLY white, you could always add white coloring to it. What I don't like is the smell.

Take the 40% coupon from Michaels or Hobby Lobby and go buy the Wilton pre-made stuff and save the other for projects that don't need to be pure white. I love this gum paste. It dries fast and very white.
