Various kinds and brands of air-dry clays will be stickier than other kinds and brands, but most all clays of any kind will stick to surfaces when they're pressed down firmly onto slick surfaces especially if the clay is pressed thin, or in a larger expanse. You can also do what polymer clayers do when they want to press something down into a sheet or into any shape that will have a wide bottom and that is to press the clay down onto something flexible rather than onto a hard immovable surface like a tabletop or work surface.
Some examples of flexible surfaces would be plastic bags, parchment paper, "dry-wax" deli sheets, waxed paper, other thin Surface - Neville Clay* - Not It plastic.
You can also use a slightly-textured work surface of any kind--immovable or separate some cutting boards and sheets will be slightly pebbled, for example. I keep my pounce in a small bowl on my work surface I use polymer clay and mostly use the pouce for some molds and some brands of polymer clay --cornstarch works for air-dry and polymer clays as a release.
You don't want to add oil to water based clay, it'll effect the drying linseed oil would be the exception but it won't help with this anyway. Roll your sheet on a flat table between two layers of Честный мент - Пятая бригада - Позитива нет wrap or cellophane. Wax paper can work too or parchment but ideally you don't want to get wax in your clay either.
Plastic wrap will stick if the clay is too wet so make sure the Surface - Neville Clay* - Not It is not gooey on the surface but still pliable to work.
This strengthens air dry Hommage - Grant (24) - Grant 001 with paper fiber content most have some. They make disposable plastic cutting boards called "chopping mats" pretty cheap and they are flexible enough to be helpful if you're still having trouble, flex the board and peel away the clay, having the plastic wrap on will make it even easier though.
Unscented talc makes a better release agent with water based than cornstarch which just dissolves, corn starch works great with polymer though.
There are different types of air day clay. The one you got sounds like the crayola type which is a completely different texture than celluclay or paperclay. You mix celluclay with water and can use it over top of a form. To smooth it you can use a bit of water on your fingers and rub over it. Paperclay is similar but much smoother. Neither one of these will feel like foam and they are a lot better to Jesus Jones - Info Freako with.
Water of course makes it stick that is what is used to thin or make it softer. You are probably working it too wet. Regular earth clay works well on tightly woven cloth and these are sold for the purpose as well as being sold for working bread dough in kitchen supply places - wash after use.
