Can you dust it with corn starch? I'd dust it very lightly, so it doesnt clump if I tried it.

or maybe PS.

Does it taste okay? or is it greasy.

I might even try wiping it with a paper towell, wonder if you could brush it with vodka? like you were painting it... ?? that usually dries out my fondant and takes away any shiney that I have. when I paint the surface...

These are all just suggestions that I would do- but I am a cake idiot. I dont know a thing about them, everything I do I do is trial and error.

I did this with my shrek,,just wipe dry with paper towel and use paintbrush for small, hard to reach areas to wipe away..it's the best option..i know what you mean by elephant skin..i'm working on that task..it's hard to get the fondant just right.

I would try the paper towel before anything else, simplest and less possible damage.
