My MMF is very dusty colored from rolling it on the powder sugar coated surface. How do I remove the dustyness? When I brush it off, it still look slightly dusty. I can't seem to acheive the bright and deep colors that I want because of this. PLEASE HELP

You can roll it out with a little bit of cornstarch instead, but it will still be a bit dusty. Some people use a bit of shortening on the mat for that reason. If you need to hide the dustyness try taking a big brush (like a blush brush fat) and dust on some lustre dust or some other sparkly dust.
