Your problem is that you are trying to fit flat paper on a compound curve. No matter how small you divide it, it is not going to lay down smooth.

It might be possible to laser etch it with a rotary attachment. You could also print on a conical strip of plastic and vacuum form it to your curve.

If I had to do it, I would probably divide the surface in to a grid along with the template and use that to freehand copy the template on to the wood.
