try steaming it, like how Buddy does it or lightly rub crisco over it.

I use a large 3" paintbrush to brush off the extra ps or cs. I usually try not to use too much to begin with.

take a paper towel & rub some Crisco (or whatever shortening you use) on the areas with the PS or CS on it

It doesn't matter if it light or dark fondant..it will dry clear...Hope that makes sense

A fan tipped paint brush will work wonders! just make sure it's dry to avoid the dreaded glossiness! I've used crisco before and although the fondant didn't get sticky,like with water, it got super shiney and you may not want that look at all.

I have this problem and another forum member recently told me to try rubbing the spot with another piece of fondant? I haven't tried it yet but it makes sense! Hope this helps.

Vodka. Damp paintbrush and vodka works a treat!
