Notes: This week I started my project. I looked up how to make gum base and then when im done I will try to make different tastes myself.
Things You’ll Need:
Step 2: Remove the warmed chicle from oven and immediately make an indentation in the chicle with the spoon, and, into this indentation, add the ounce of warmed beeswax, plus one teaspoon of vegetable oil.
Step 3: Mix thoroughly with the spoon. Work quickly before the chicle becomes too stiff to stir. This is your gum base
Rewarm yet again in the oven at 350 degrees (F) for ten minutes. Remove from oven and immediately remove from pan and place gum base on a sheet of waxed paper. Flatten to 1/4 inch with the back of your spoon, and use a knife that has been warmed by holding under running hot water to cut the gum base into 1/2 squares. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and allow to cool. Makes approximately 10 – 12 pieces of gum.
