Gumpaste rose - first try. - Page 2

post #16 of 73
Thread Starter 
SEAQUEEN I had a CK gumpaste mix. I added about 2 TBSP of tylose to it. I also knead a little bit of fixodent (powdered version) into the gumpaste before I roll it out.

I'm going to try the Nicolas Lodge recipe, which is really good for humid places.

Yep, Momkiksbutt. I use Fixodent which help my gumpaste dry and harden in humid areas.

How much Fixodent do you use?

Since Fixodent comes in a bottle. I just sprinkle a little on it. I knead it a couple of times. I add a little more and knead it again.

You should look at Jeff's picture tutorial too. I followed that, since he has about 5 or 6 rows of petals.

Ok, here's a totally noob GP question....are you using the fixodent as a tylose replacement? Or just as an aid in the drying because of humidity?

If it's a good substitute for tylose, well then Woohoo!! Just curious. I find the gumpaste mix sort of expensive for the amount you get in the Wilton brand. That's why I haven't bought any in a while.

If anyone has any good priced places that they get theirs, please share with me..... icon_smile.gif
Tell me I can't, and it will be done....

I'll upload the Rosemary Watson tutorial thing too.



Thanks for the site. The only thing I didn't see on that site was how thin do you roll the gumpaste?
