CMC - 20g
Carboxymethyl Cellulose powder, known as CMC powder for short, makes a strong and inexpensive sugar glue. Just add 1 part CMC to 30 parts of cooled boiled water.
At first the mixture will be very lumpy but there is no need to stir the glue as the CMC will dissolve to leave a smooth paste. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
CMC pwder can also be kneaded into Renshaw's Regal Ice or M & B Luxury Sugarpaste to make a verstile modelling paste. All it takes is a 1/4 teaspoon of CMC powder to 100g of Regal Ice or M & B Luxury sugarpaste. The modelling paste can be used with a variety of cutters, as well as for modelling.
