Yes, I use only 1 layer. But, I put the resist (in my case vinyl or UP) on, tape it up around the edges (1 layer of tape), then a single layer of plastic wrap (I use the walmart brand). I tape one end of the plastice wrap to the resist edge, wrap it around the piece (cup, bottle, glass, wine glass, etc.) and then tape the other end to the other side of the resist. I stuff the excess down into the cup and tape along the top edge, and tape along the bottom edge.

I discovered this tip on the CES board. After several dozen (empty) martini glasses, I got the hang of it and have been using it ever since.
