Plain old acetate should work... but whatever they sold for making canopies is probably fine... coke bottle (2L) should work fine too. How are you heating it? I've used a heat gun, but it's hard to heat it enough that way without getting hot spots (and burns/holes). I think the best way is to put the plastic sheet in some sort of quick'n dirty wood frame, heat the plastic in the oven and then use the frame to pull the sheet over your mold. Unfortunately, I don't know what temperature you'll need 'cause that will depend on the type of plastic.

Good luck,
