Default need help protecting plans

Guys, I'm sick of using wax paper to cover my plans while building.
When I used to build back in 1970, my dad had these clear sheets of acrylic or acetate that the epoxy wouldn't stick to.
Anybody using acetate or a thin sheet of polycarbonate?
Using CA's now, I need something other than wax paper, I'm tired of it sticking to my plane as I am building.

As always, I always appreciate your inputs.

The backing of Monokote is an old standby. Maybe parchment paper if you can see through it? I don't know, no one else was answering for you.

Smile Protecting plans

I went to Hobby Lobby (any store that sells roll goods fabrics) found three thicknesses of clear vinyl in 5' widths, sold by the running yard (or foot) very inexpensive and CA does not stick. I used the medium thickness. Works like a charm! Also, it lays flatter without wrinkles on your plans.
