I just wrapped mine on 2x4's at the floor and stapled it in place - which takes care of the billowing Dewey mentioned. I used 4 or 5 rolls total of 10x20x.003 clear plastic, stapled to furring strips then screwed to the wall studs under the 'rock.

But --- whatever works for you to keep the dust off of the surface is the best way, regardless of how you choose to do build your "booth".
