If you mean icing sheets or sugar paper, you can use piping gel, water, crisco just to name a few. I mainly use water, but only use crisco when I need it to slide around before setting.

i've used rice paper for my dragon wings (in photos) and i attached them with a tiny bit of water to the fondant covering the dragon. but in retrospect-now i would most definetly use melted chocolate instead. as water made the rice paper transparent and limp. hth icon_lol.gif

You only need a little bit of water when attaching it to rice paper. but my guess is corn syrup or piping gel may work better in that instance
