It's an interesting idea... Dacron has been used for home built aircraft -- when heat is applied, it shrinks to form a tight, smooth, surface...

At the same time, that might be an issue around hot parts... Just throwing that out there.

For super low tech... Wool is fireproof - and I imagine if supported and mounted properly, it'd be stable. Might not handle other environmental variables, however.
