i am starting to work with isomelt and sugar glass, and have run across a couple questions. how do you make it so it doesnt get sticky? i made a sugar glass beer bottle and when i unmolded it, its very sticky to the touch, the same think happens with my isomelt diamonds. then when i touch them, i get finger smudges on them. any tips? tia

What temperature are you cooking your Isomalt up to? You should be at 340 degrees.

Any time I work with isomalt or cooked sugar it has a slight sticky feel. I normally allow them to dry well before handling them. Still some finger prints but nothing really noticeable.
