Acoustic panels for recording area as independent as possible from room sound (Vocals + A-Guitar)

Hi there,

unfortunately, I cannot optimize my room acoustically. It is a very small room (13 square meter / 140 square feet) and I would now like to use 2-4 acoustic panels to improve the sound of my recordings.

Like this: https://youtu.be/qghqhyNIAVQ?t=502
Or like this: https://dt7v1i9vyp3mf.cloudfront.net...azCzAQ4Ekd.jpg

Since I can move the acoustic panels, I hope to become more independent from the room sound.

For the recordings, guitar and vocals are miked at the same time.

How should I proceed to build the right acoustic panels? Should I just use rock wool (14 cm / 5 inch) and be good? Everyone always seems to just talk about the effect of the material on the room acoustics, but I never read anything about the right material / thickness of the material when it comes to such "isolated" recording areas.

What type and how many acoustic panels of what size and material can help me the most in this specific use case?

I am very grateful for help!
