I made Deer antlers using some wire and then wrapping it in floral tape and covering that in Gumpaste.  The problem is I'm afraid the weight of the gumpaste is going to pull the antlers down.  I have towels and  other things propping it up into position while it dries but I'm afraid once it is dry it will fall again.  Has anyone ever had any problems or helpful tips on what to do.... Should I be a ball of stress like I am.  I need these things for Saturday!!!   Please help with any information!!!!!

They should be fine. The gumpaste will dry solid and it's also good that you used some wire.

Just make sure you allow it to sit untouched and dry completely. I've made some pretty big gumpaste figures and accents without any wire and they were fine once they were dry.
