CMC and Tylo Powder

From: £4.65
Availability: In stock

A substitute for Gum Tragacanth, CMC powder can be added to sugarpaste to create a firm setting modelling paste.  You can also add CMC to royal icing along with vegetable fat to create a hard setting flower paste. 

CMC is available under 2 different brand names - Sugarcel and Tylo Powder.  Both products are CMC - we offer both to give a choice of pack sizes.

Knead 1 teaspoon of CMC into 225g (8 oz) of sugarpaste to make modelling paste.  CMC needs time to work before the paste is used - you should begin to feel a difference in the paste after an hour or so, but it is best left overnight. Keep your modelling paste well wrapped - it needs to be completely airtight to prevent drying out.

We also sell Gum Tragacanth, which is a natural product, and much stronger than CMC, but it does take longer to activate and can work out more pricey than CMC.

Rainbow Dust Ingredients: Sodium Carboxy Cellulose Gum. CMC/Sugarcel Ingredients: E466 Carboxymethylcellulose
