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!

Well think of it this way... the fingerprints give your flowers character! And they are cheaper then veiners! icon_lol.gif

I can't believe nobody has helped you! Lemme go search....

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.
