What can I use to keep CA from sticking to a jig?

I've built a wooden jig to make some parts with. I have to use CA to glue to various parts together with but don't want to end up glueing them to the jig. Is there anything I can put on the jig to keep the CA from sticking the parts to the jig?

Right now I'm being(in your best Elmer Fudd voice) very, very, very careful when I do the glue up.

I have used a paste wax applied to wooden clamps to keep glue from sticking to the clamps. You may need to use several coats and buff/polish the wax when dry.
SC Johnson makes a paste wax. That is what I have used in the past. I also use it on all my cast iron work surfaces in my shop to keep them from rusting. The paste wax may also work as a release agent when you need to get the part out of the jig.
The paste wax was first used for wood parquet floors to protect the wood surface.
