What will E6000 *not* stick to?

I need to secure some buckram across eye holes in a costume. While there won't be much tension or stress on the fabric, I want to make sure it stays taut long term.

E6000 should do the trick, but I want to apply some pressure as the glue cures. Since the buckram is porous, and the glue will seep through a little, I need to place a "non-stick" layer between the glue/buckram and whatever I use to put some weight pressure on it.

Long story short, what will E6000 not stick to? Wax paper? Non-stick aluminum foil? Silicone spray?

I know it didn't really work when I was using corrugated plastic. And it also didn't stick too well to the gorilla gloves I had used in the same costume. How much space your looking to have?

It won't stick to anything like hard plastics similarly used in hard hats.

It does not hold magnets. The pull strength of the magnets wears down E6000 after awhile.

For your purpose, I'd test with wax paper or stretch plastic wrap. Silicone spray may improve results.
