Depends on the one you use.
The Wilton dries pretty fast
Satin Ice requires longer time to dry
Bakels....never dries icon_confused.gif
Tylose, dries pretty fast and it's my favorite.
When you are working with anything that has to do with gumpaste is best to give you a few days of dry time. The longer the stronger it will be.

I use the wilton simply because it dries fast but not too fast for me to be able to mould what I need to out of it. Thin petals are dry in a couple of hours and rock hard overnight.
