Default polymer clay guidance

I am giving my first try at making a polymer clay center. What do you do to prevent the final product from keeping "my fingerprints"? Thanks

When I make my polymer clay charms and centers I just keep smoothing the clay with my fingertip till the fingerprints are gone for the most part. If you continue to move your fingertip back and forth it will erase your fingerprints for the most part. I have also used a low grade sandpaper and LIGHTLY brushed the clay with that. I know that when I work with Sculpey I have a harder time keeping my prints off of it; I am a big fan of Fimo. HTH
