I would be concerned by the added weight. I use WBPU ( water based poly) extensively for glassing sheeted wings and it is cheap[, light, hard and durable. Have used it on depron as well but laminating would probably be better long term.

An alternative is available from sign printing shops. Ask for offcuts of vinyl for small jobs or larger pieces can be bought at a reasonable price . I have used it to cover flat depron wings and to make folded depron wings with an aerofoil section (google E-SHARK to see how to do it) It makes the wing very strong, I over banked my E-Shark on a low turn and caught a wing tip resulting in a cartwheel,the wing was intact and with little work on the nose and finit flies perfect again
