I must have very deep finger print impressions!! Whenever I try to make flowers out of fondant or RBC or modeling chocolate, my fingerprints are very evident!!!
I also tried to the 'how to make a face' tutorial and the face had fingerprints all over it!
Do I have to start wearing gloves!?!?! YUCK!!
And I cannot work with modeling chocolate becauue the heat from my hands will always melt it before I can mold it.
You could try dipping your fingertips in wax to cover your fingerprints!
okay just kidding maybe someone else has real advice... I am curious to see what they say!
I'm desparate enough to dip my fingers in wax!
Well think of it this way... the fingerprints give your flowers character! And they are cheaper then veiners!
I can't believe nobody has helped you! Lemme go search....
I really hope someone has an answer for you, b/c I have the same problems!
Are your hands too warm? Maybe if you cooled them in cold water occasionally, that would help. Just a thought.
wear the gloves. get the snug fitting ones.
when I did my City Skyline cake (cut 20 sheets of skyline out of melted chocolate), the prototype had fingerprints on the buildings. I wore gloves when making the real one ... no prints and it helped diffuse the heat from my hands so no melted spots on the final buildings like I had on the prototype.
thanks for the suggestion!......I'm off to buy some gloves.
