I would like to know too!
Tried with half a tsp but it did not dry as I hoped. But I'm using CMC - don't know if the proportions are different....

I have good luck with 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon Tylose to half pound, so double that for a pound.

Check this recent thread, gives a link to a good video too:

To make gumpaste, 1 1/2 tsp for store-bought fondant, 2 tsp for homemade. The store-bought tends to already have gums in it so you don't need to use as much.

I never measure. I just add until it starts to get hard! LOL

To softer fondants like Satin Ice, Pettinice, Regalice, and FondX: 1 level tsp. per 1 lb. give a nice, workable product that dries quickly and crack-free

For Wilton fondant, which is a tighter fondant, a full 1/2 tsp. will work nicely.

These are the measurements Lorraine McKay uses when making figures.
