I've been using gum-tex for years to make gumpaste. It always worked great until the new can I bought a couple of weeks ago. The gumpaste turns out terrible, it cracks awfully, no stretch, I'm hating it. I've made quite a few batches with it. I've tried using less gum-tex thinking maybe that would help, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Just wondering if I got a bad can or if others are having the same problem.
oh great-- i just bought a can -- i usually buy powdered gum paste mix or whatever
i hope it's not the same bad batch/crummy stuff-- i wouldn't know the difference because i'm experimenting with a few things
hmmm i might be having that problem but it just might be my crazy concoctions ;)
i made this one blob of stuff--it doesn't dry out i made some molded items a few days ago--i could walk over there and knead them up right now and make something else no problemo
weird brew this ;)
so i do not know but thanks for the heads up
Are you sure that you got your usual one?
i know you are asking op but
mine is called plain "gum tex" but the only ingredient listed is gum karaya
maybe you are referencing an australian thing? and i'm in the states
I have two cans of the stuff, one is over a year old and the other is brand new, both list Karaya as the only ingredient. The old can works well, I haven't opened the new one yet. HTH
