I could be wrong but it sounds to me like you are either adding too much icing sugar or too much water. To make it less sticky add very small amounts of icing sugar in and work it really well. By adding only a tiny bit at a time you will be better able to tell when you have enough. Same with making it less dry by adding water. Only add a very small amount of water at a time...you will be surprised at how very little it can take! Again, work it in really well...I have found with water (even the smallest amounts) that it will immediatly feel way too sticky, but keep working it, it will eventually stop feeling sticky and you'll be able to tell whether it needs more or not. Other people add crisco to keep it from being too dry, but I personally don't.
