Corn starch can be used and it rinses off with water which is useful on clays that are water resistant (premo, sculpey, kato but not fimo)

Sanding is good to prepare surfaces you want to be shiny or smooth / matte lustre. If the surface is meant to be textured then you don't need to sand.

Like wood, varnishes and top coats will look better if you sand first... buffing with a tool will work better on sanded surfaces.

it might be called corn flour, if you can't find corn starch.
