How about the tip of a hair bristled pastry brush or a stencil brush dabbed onto the fondant? The stencil brushes have tightly bound bristles that hold together under pressure rather than split.

ooooh, good idea Laurenlulu. Do you have the grass tip? I think it is tip# 402. You might try that.

Don't know if this will work for you but its what I did on a cake.

I made the towel and let it dry. I colored royal to match, smeared evenly over towel. Using a cosmetic wedge and a pastry brush, I got the texture I was looking for.

thank you for the suggestions. I ended up using tip2010, the triple star tip and just pounced it on the fondant over and over, it gave it a rough texture that i was looking for. thanks.

Try texturing it with a real towel. You might like the results.
