if you put a little bit of gum paste in a bowl and you add about a teaspoon of water, mix until the gum paste is dissolved and the starch of the gum paste will work as an adhesive. :) I've also heard that vodka works well too but I have yet to try it.
A little tylose, gum tex, or cmc mixed with water will make a wonderful gum paste glue that dries quickly and holds extremely well.
ho! my thanks you all 3,. Ive made my 1st batch ever., on monday and didnt have any glue so i was ready to spend 16.35 usd. to pay for tylose on a local store THANKS ,,,,,
does the corn syrup/water mix dry clear? I need it to put my pearls on a fondant covered/quilted board that is white, pearls are pink.
For some reason, the tylose / water mix didn't work fro me and I followed the step exactly to make it. I'm going to try the corn syrup/ water next time.
I have tried the gumpaste and water recipe and it just doesnt seem to work so i use just straight cornsyrup or a mixture of cornsyrup and water
these are all great comments and feedbacks, but it all depends on what you are doing and what you like, the corn syrup drys clear but it takes a while to dry about 24hrs, again depending on how much you use
I use equal parts of meringue powder and water for glue. Works great.
LISTEN DRY EATABLE NAIL POLISH ND GUM PASTE IT WILL MAKE A GREAT FODANT
TRY EATABLE NAIL POLISH ND GUM PASTE AND IT WILL BE A GREAT FONDANT
The thing to remember with gum glue (I use gum paste and water) is it only lasts 1 week and must be thrown away. And make sure you refrigerate it. I had some that was 8 days and was moldy!
thx for the advice everyone!!!!
Vodka....sounds funny but the small amount you use is not going to hurt anyone. It dries clean and quick and does not leave any shinny spots like gumpaste adhesive.
Hi could someone tell me if they know the uk name for corn syrup, i can get golden syrup,I asked at my supermarket but no one had any idea any help please thank you
flower girl, im almost sure you can use glucose or golden syrup inplace of corn syrup
fhank you oyster,just spotted your advice,
Just made wedding cake cookies will little gumpaste fall leaves and royal icing monograms. I used straight cornsyrup for the glue. It worked beautifully.
glad i could help, i used it to build a shrek house out of gumpastee
I've experienced glucose as glue while making gumpaste teddy bear and it wasn't good at all still prefer to use plain water.
could someone please help, how much gum trag do you mix in fondant to make it dry HARD???? what is the ratio??/
Which adhesive works best for gumpaste flowers? I usually use Merinque powder and water but it leaves a shinny and sometimes not clear finish.
