I suggest sport tape for experiments: It is fabric, very cheap and comes off easily. Duct tape is just slick. I don't have time for these experiments, as I will first pursue other options.
I was thinking of the model RC airplane thin plastic sheet rolls that are used for the skin. One problem I see in making your own is figuring out the right tension for the skin to vibrate.

How would you test a homemade version? The oil slick test?
