Tylose substitute for gumpaste recipe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello All!
I have a recipe for making my own gum paste.
The recipe calls for using Tylose.
Problem is that where I live, there isn't anywhere i can get Tylose ASAP.
Is there a substitute that I can use, like cornstarch, arrowroot, etc. that will give me the same effect as the Tylose.
I will be making sugar flowers with this.
Please help.
Thank you for you time.;)

here is a link to a recipe with gelatin instead of tylose. I have not made it so I'm not sure how good it is, but this is about the only substitute besides tragacanth.
