I have an Xacto knife I use when cutting fondant, yet it still seems to rip areas of the fondant. I can't seem to a clean cut like I would using a cooking cutter or a pizza cutter. Maybe thickness has something to do with it or leave it out to dry for some time before I cut it. Or maybe I need a specific shaped Xacto knife - rounded off (like a scapel), or pointed edge (like I currently have).
Thanks for your help!
I find that when i use these i need to clean the blade after each time i cut a piece cuz the fondant sticks to the blade and kind of makes it dull. Try cleaning the blade after each time cutting something and see if that helps. Hope that made sense.
Rosita is right on. The fondant kind of sticks to the sides and makes your edge yucky! Just keep cleaning the blade of whatever you are using.
I use a sharp pointed scalpel and have to clean it frequently, too! I also bought one of those long razor blades in the sculpey clay department. I find I use that alot also!
Thank you for the replies. I guess I'm not alone with this 'sticky' problem:
