I need to make a big tiffany type bow and I am running low on gumpaste. I want to mix it 50/50 with some fondant. Which type will dry faster, satin ice or fondarific?

Satin Ice, in my experience.

Satin Ice.

Fondarific will NOT dry. It's a candy melt based product, so it's got about 3 times the amount of oil that other fondant's have.

If you can get some gum tex, tylose, cmc, or even some Fixodent powder (same active ingredient), I'd strongly suggest adding it to the mix, too.
