Believe retired1's suggesting the aluminum foil for putting source glue on- a puddle/big drop you pick up some from with a stick, and transfer it to the joint surface- not as a "build surface."
Number of good thoughts/suggestions above.
The very fine tip approach works really well.
Unless you really know how (and when) to use the thin CA, leave it alone. Medium is much easier to manage; slow even more so.
Wax paper works well- important to realize it's 2-sided; one with a wax layer, one where the wax has....soaked through some from the waxed side. The soaked through side tends to stick a lot more than the really waxed side.
Using wax (as in wax for cars) works well- your build surface needs to be impervious (glass, plexiglass, melamine-coated particle board, etc.) Rub on, then polish slightly for smoothness..
A piece of HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic works great if you have a plastics store around.
Using a razor blade (pressed down against your build surface works well to pop things loose without any damage.
Glue on the finger- hard to avoid some; we call it dragon skin. Soaking hands for a few minutes, to soften the skin, makes it easy to peel off.
