I'm doing a 'sports' related grooms cake for this w/e and I made a golf bag for the second time last night (the 1st one crumbled in my hand) and it still looks 'dried out' today. It's not cracking; but just looks dry. Obviously I have added too much CS and I didn't add as much in the 2nd batch...is there something I can do to it now (after the figurine is made) to revive it a bit. what will happen if I airbrush it lightly with water?? Any help at all would be much appreciated! icon_cry.gif

I would use vodka instead of water.

You could rub a little bit of glycerin on it with your fingers.
