What if anything do you put in your fondant to make it dry faster, or mold easier?
When I'm using fondant for making figures or flowers etc., I add gumpaste to it. I usually use a 50-50 mix. It dries much faster than fondant alone.
For bows, I only use gumpaste. You can get thinner loops that way and they don't sag as easily as fondant ones.
Some people add gumtex, some do a 50/50 fondant/gumpaste combo. That's all from what I read though. Personally, I've tried 50/50 fondant and candy clay. It dries pretty quickly and it creates a smooth matte finish. HTH.
I think you add tylose powder (also called tylopur) or some of the gums. ( gum tragacanth, etc). I'm still new to modeling. I'm waiting for the tylose powder I ordered so I can start on the tutorial by aine2 (lorraine). At least she says to use tylose powder (CMC) to fondant (sugarpaste). If you use the gum tragacanth, you have to do it ahead of time (like 12 hours.)
