I've tried the recipe and when i am applying it ,the texture becomes almost like a rubbery. it rolls off while i am applying it.can you let me know what i am doing wrong.

I used the varnish on the windshield and glass of a vintage truck. I found that filling my brush with varnish and making one light sweep stopped the rolling. I covered the area in rows, never letting my brush touch the gumpaste. Also, I had to reheat the varnish before I finished because it started to get rubbery. The varnish added so much to the appearance of the truck. Thanks for sharing!
