Does anyone use a food dehydrator to dry gumpaste flowers? I made some pariot tulips that wouldnt dry after several days, so i thought it would be a good idea to get one. If anyone has any info on which one to get it would be appreciated.

The best is to let them dry up to a week if possible.  If your gumpaste is really thin that helps. I have used my tall fan to lightly blow on them from a distance. But I only did that once because our AC wasn't working so well.  But the best was the comment below. I had a B & G figures I need to dry PDQ, and I did the oven light trick.  Always works.

A food dehydrator will work but if you don't want to buy another appliance just use your oven.  If you turn on the light and leave your items in the oven overnight the light will generate enough heat to dry gumpaste and fondant.
