AAnyone have any tips for removing cotton fibers from dried fondant? Used some cotton rounds to support a fondant figure while drying, but now I see little white fibers where it came in contact with the fondant.
Dont know if it would work but try rubbing some Crisco (shortening) and see if it will loosen enough for you rub it off.
ADon't have any advise, but just popped in to say i hate this problem too!!!! Sometimes i'd try to pluck them with a twizzer or a hat pin :( but they are truly a pain!!!! :( good luck!
If you use fibre fill( used to stuff toys cushions etc ) or even scrunched up glad wrap , instead of cotton you won't get the fibres
If you prop bows open on their sides, put rolled paper towel in the center of the loop. If you need to support maybe a figure then try a paper towel roll to hold it upright. There are many things you can do to make fondant/ gum paste items either stand or be supported somehow. Also be sure you do not have a sweater or anything fuzzy when working with this medium. Good luck!
If is just for you at home (not sure if it is considered food safe) and you are happy to try it, I would grab a piece of sticky tape (just one of those cheap, not real sticky ones that you use for wrapping presents etc) and try dabbing that on your figurine.
