Duck tape mouse pad?

 How can I make a mouse pad out of duck tape for my laser mouse. I tried just making a flat piece of duck tape but my mouse just jumped around the screen.

I just tryied my mouse on several surfaces.  The only surface that it wouldn't work correctly was the screen of a color crt tv turned off.  I think that either there was too much reflection or not enough.

Too much reflection might be your problem.  Other than that I don't know why it wouldn't work right.

Is is a wireless mouse or wired?

I have a lap top and a desktop both are laser. My desktop is wired and my laptop is wireless. I want the mouse pad to be portable and flat to take in my laptop case.
I was just about to post that the duct tape is probably too shiny for the mouse to read accurately, but you beat me to it. Curse you, Red Baron!

Not really the best choice, IMO.  Sticky, rubbery, bumpy and too shiny.

Try giving it a few good coats of spray on lacquer.  Maybe this could work.
