E-P5 popup flash bounce modifier

I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on a DIY hack similar to this:


I am looking to bounce light off the popup flash on the PEN for two reasons:

1: for RC mode with the 600r to avoid direct flash on the subject but still fire the external flash

2: use in a pinch when the external flash isn't there.

Does anybody know of a workaround for preventing the popup flash from contributing to the overall exposure? Yes, it is turned "off" in the 4th group, but I read that it always contributes regardless.
