HEY!! I just saw your video on YouTube where it cracked.

I never leave my sugarveil to dry overnight. I usually give it between 30 mins and 3 hours depending on the weather. The humidity really effects the drying time.

you want it to be dry but flexible, if it dries to "set" it will be like Royal and crack.

If I remember, Lauri left hers in the fridge, which will keep it from setting.

Good luck with it! keep working with it, the stuff really is amazing!!
