I know I've read this before but I just can't find the specifics.

Can I paint a dummy with piping Jel and then fondant it?
Do the corners tear without icing? and does it last as long without icing under the fondant??

All you need to do is spray your dummy with water. As long as it doesn't get dry the fondant won't tear. I do all my dummies that way. (So does Colette Peters.) They will last indefinitely

All I do to cover dummies with fondant is to rub some crisco on them.. just like I was putting cream on them.. not too much. The fondant will stick nicely to the crisco and then when you go to take the fondant off it will just peel right off. If you do it with piping gel or water the fondant will be REALLY stuck on there and it will not come off easily at all and chip your dummies.

Piping gel tends to melt the fondant..
