When you roll it out, try dusting your surface with cornstarch. Maybe that will help.

What fondant are you using?

as i am rolling i continuously rub icing sugar in, and when it is on the cake i rub my hands in icing sugar and rub all over the cake, even with dark colours as it gives a matt finish rather than a shiny one

Wilton's fondant shouldn't become greasy. I've worked with it many of times and have never had that issue.

Are you putting it in the fridge? How are you rolling it out?
