I've never tried waxed paper, but people use plain old tightly woven cotton fabric, so it might work fine. I have some placemats from the $ store that work pretty well, but are tough to roll. I am looking to score some old carpet padding because that sounds like it would be good. I have also used  cardboard from and old box and put packing tape around the edges. It worked well in that I could roll it, but it was definately a one use per resist thing.

I've used transparencies, vinyl (the clear kind sold by the yard) and craft foam (from the 'kids crafts' sections of stores). These are all reusable and flexible. I would be afraid that wax paper would get limp when wet and wad up inside the felt.

You can use bubble wrap, which is cheap and easy to get. For the patterns I plan to use more times, I trace the patterns on plastic placemats I got for a few cents at Ikea.
