Default Weight of covering for foam wing

Brown paper on foam is not that robust

what weight of nylon or silk and the application type

should I use for a 1.5cc stunter,

that is robust for landing in the occasional weeds

Thank you

I got a hold of some light silk
and will cover the front 1/3 of the wing with it
and the back part with brown paper

I put 2 layers of brown paper on my foam vertical stabilizer and it is extremely strong. More ding resistant than anything out there.
