i'm making a figurine of burt reynolds on a bear skin rug as a cake topper for a birthday, i made him last night and it was ok, but this morning i went in and he's all wrinkly. (haha it does make me laugh) is there anything i can do to fix this, he's very thick so i know the drying time will be longer on him than normal, but its already starting to harden on the surface.. any advice?

It often happens with thick pieces. the exterior dries faster than the interior. As the inside shrinks, it wrinkles the outside.

I don't think there is much you can do.
