I'm going to try the cork to see if that works, won't hurt anything.

Note the emphasis. Thinner is better. I initially used double sided tape to fasten it but it "slides" under pressure and defeats the object. But it was handy to try out different materials and once I found what worked best I fixed it properly with contact adhesive.

I have also used thin leather (glove material) with the "rough" side outermost. That works pretty well and is more robust than very thin cork, but cork is better if you can find some the right thickness.
