Everytime I tint my fondant (I use Satin Ice), it gets kind of crumbly and dry looking. When I roll it out, it gets cracks all in it. HELP! What am I doing wrong? This last time I kept my hands coated in crisco hoping it would help, but it didn't. Is it too much dye? Am I kneading it too much? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd vote for way too much dye. That's why I keep a 2# container of all the colors of SatinIce on hand. You can mix colored fondant together all day long without problem.
