I am making a sail for a sailboat, a person and a beach chair out of gumpaste...I know that some of these things need to dry for a day or two before assembling but how long exactly?? How much time can I do in advance?? Thanks for the help!

Gumpaste alone dries very quickly depending on how thick you roll it. I have made flowers that dry in a couple of hours. At the longest I would say a day or two max (again depending on thickness) You can make them quite a bit in advance I believe you just want to cover them in an air tight container. Maybe someone more experienced can answer for sure though
