I am tring to make a gumpaste cow. I rol the ball for the body and set it apart to make the legs. When i go to stick them they body begins to crack and is flattened out from when i layed it down.

What are some your suggestions? Thanks everyone!

50/50 fondant/gumpaste, it really slows down the drying time. I just ordered some Tylrose powder do I'm not sure how fast that drys but I sure am excited about it!!
