Use a steamer if you have one.
Like a steamer for your clothes.
I have one just for fondant, actually someone gota lil travel size one for me as a gift and I never had a use for it...until FONDANT! lol

The steam will make the fondant shiny. Don't over steam it or the fondant will run.

Good Luck!

I've read some people brush theirs with water...some use something called "varnish" but I don't know the recipe...
I've used water on black fondant and didn't like the outcome.
