Smoothing polymer clay
I would like to ask about smoothing polymer clay.
When I sculpt human figures with bare skin, I cannot manage to sculpt very smooth skin without a small dimples. The worst thing is that these dimples come clearly visible when painting the figure.
When sculpting, I use sculpting tools and my fingers to smooth the surface and for the final touch I brush the sculpture with soft brush and turpenoid.
I use flesh color super sculpey mixed with super sculpey firm. Most of the dimples were almost impossible to detect on flesh color super sculpey, but this problem was solved after mixing some grey sculpey witgh fleshy stuff, but still there are some dimples.
Any ideas or suggestions? Or should I just work even more carefully?
Thank you in advance!

just use rubbing alcohol on a small brush, but dont use too much or leave it on too heavy it will kinda melt the polymer
