My Wilton teacher said to roll the fondant out evenly and use a tip or tiny cutter to make even shapes then roll the shapes into balls.

You could:
1. weight them or
2. roll out with pasta machine and then cut out with a tip or a cutter.

i use a round frosting tip to cut them and then roll them in the palm of my hands (dont use your fingers). http://www.earlenescakes.com/prlinstruct.htm

I've done what mommy2kae does. I roll out the fondant evenly. Then, I use a circle cutter to cut out multiple cirles of exactly the same size. Then, I roll them in my hands. They should be the same size.

I have just bought from FMM i think, a bead maker, but they IMO are not that easy to use but the beads all come out in a row the same size
