AThere are two ways wmartz. 1. Take a small bottle with a tight fitting lid. Fill bottle 3/4 full with clear alcohol, rum, vodka. Add about a heaping tablespoon of ready made or homemade gumpaste. Shake bottle well. Let sit overnight. The gumpaste will break down. It should be soupy, not too thick. If it's too thick, just a touch more alcohol.

2. Same as above except add 2 heaping tsp of tylose powder to the alcohol and shake. You won't have to wait overnight to use. Approx 1/2-1 hour for tylose to thicken. As above, if too thick add more alcohol. Too thin add a touch more tylose. Hopes this helps

I use 1/4 cup warm water and 1/4 tsp. Tylose powder shake and let thicken.

AI tried water and tylose and I found it became to gummy. So I went back to alcohol. With the alcohol, it lasts a long time. Alcohol also keeps it sterile so mould won't grow. Made with water, you would have to refrigerate.

I also use a mixture of tylose and water - I just put a bit of tylose in a container and add water a little at a time until I have the consistency I want. This way you just make up a little at a time.

thanks so much for all your responses! Do you get your tylose powder online? I haven't seen it at Michaels or a.c.moore

I am in Australia - our local cake supply store sells it in 20 gram bags.
