Hi Raewyn, here in Auckland we also get high humidity (80-90%) though thankfully not all year round! I recently had major problems with some sugarveil, the humidity was at about 84% and I just couldn’t get it to come off the slicone sheet without it ripping to pieces. I tried about 5 times before sending sugarveil themselves a facebook message in sheer frustration! They were extremely helpful, answered my message from the other side of the world within a day and this was their advice: If the humidity is really high, make the sugarveil mix up and leave it for an hour or so, then when you want to spread it on your silicone sheet/mould, turn your oven on, work as close as possible to the oven and have a fan going over your work at the same time. I left the fan on the sheet of sugarveil for about three hours and it dried and I managed to get it off with only minor tearing! This was my first time using sugarveil so I was extremely happy it worked as the sheets and tools are quite expensive! I hope this might be helpful to anyone else trying sugarveil in high humidity! :)
