I'm making some decorations using black fondant and gumpaste. I thought once they sat the extra powdered sugar would absorb but it didn't. You will be able to see the pieces from both sides so I need to get rid of all excess. Would would you use? I tried a small paint brush with water and it helped but the pieces became sticky and they take a long time to dry. I think volka might work? Can i use lemon juice? Any suggestions?
I hope this makes sense.
Your right...water makes it sticky.
I use a soft viva paper towel and buff off the excess or a very soft paint brush. You can also buff the surface with a little crisco or shortening.
I try to just put the sugar or corn starch or the surface and I try not to turn it over while I roll.
Hope this helps!
Thanks! I will try that.
Here's a great thread about that problem!
