I looked on CC for a gumpaste glue and didn’t find one. So I decided to post the one I found in case someone else found themselves in the same predicament.


  • 1 Tbl Meringue powder


    1. In a very small container mix meringue powder and water. It will have a thin consistency. (I added more meringue because I wanted it thicker)
    1. OR
    1. Pull off pieces of ready made gumpaste and let it sit in the water for 30 minutes or until gumpaste is softened or dissolved.

I use VERY hot water to put mine in. and then I keep the container, with whatever is left and I just add to it as I need it. I do the gumpaste/water one.

It should also probably be noted that unused glue should be stored in the fridge when not in use and it is possible for it to go rank. I use the hot water/gumpaste method for all of mine and it only lasts about a week and a half to two weeks before smelling foul.
