Can I use Gum-Tex to make Gum Glue Adhesive?

Luz - from Roselle, NJ

Gum-Tex is used to help dry and give strength to rolled fondant, it does not make Gum Glue Adhesive.

To make Gum Glue Adhesive, break about 1/4 teaspoon of Ready-To-Use Gum Paste into very small pieces. Dissolve the pieces in about 1 tablespoon water. Let rest about 1 hour. Mixture will be ready to use even if some pieces have not dissolved. Just brush on your fondant or gum paste decorations to make them stick to each other.
