Help! My Fondant is Sticking!

Three additives, three results to solve sticky fondant situations.
 
Cornstarch
Pros: 
Brushes off fondant easier than powdered sugar. 
Useful on smaller detail work.
Can use less cornstarch than powdered sugar.
 
Cons: 
Too much can affect fondant taste. 
Can dry out fondant faster. 
Can be difficult to remove totally from darker fondants.
 
Powdered Sugar
Pros: 
Doesn’t impact fondant taste. 
Useful for covering a cake.
Brushes off easier than cornstarch.
 
Cons: 
Can dry out fondant faster. 
Sometimes makes fondant sticky, especially in humid locations.
Sugar can attract moisture and clump.
 
Shortening
Pros: 
Doesn’t dry fondant out as quickly as the other two.
No powdery residue left behind. Great for black fondant.
Easy to put on fondant and rolling pin in an even coating.
 
Cons: 
Too much will break down fondant. 
May make it too shiny. 
Can be goopy if not applied carefully.
