Hello,

I'm in the process of developing a sugar paste for hair removal and trying to find a good ratio between sugar, water and acid in order to get a gewy consistency. I currently use 8 tbs sugar, 4 tbs water and 2 citric acid and let it reach a temperature around 128 degrees Celsius (262.4 degrees F) on the stove to have a nice and firm consistency. However it takes too long time and gets a burnt color. What is causing this? What changes do I need to make in order to lower the time it takes to get a similar consistency (and therefore also not burning it and having a lighter color)?

Thank you
