After you wrap your fondant around whatever it is you're covering...smooth it out, then use a small non-shedding paintbrush (like you would use for watercolor paints) and "paint" the fondant with clear vanilla extract. It will add some shine and keep your fondant from drying out. :) You can also add lustre dust to it to make a paint...that is my favorite new thing to add some sparkle! Good luck!!!

Also another trick ive learned place fondant in a ziplock bag and add a tsp of oil into it. knead it around and microwave it for 15 sec. should restore some moisture.
