That wood work is insane. He could have done it half the time if he had a vacuum bag and veneer. Jeez!

Wow, I finally went through all of his photos up to page 36. Incredible. It's completely hand made.

You can get repositionable adhesives and use any paper. 3M, others sell it. This is the kind of stuff an airbrush artist would use. The adhesive is not weak, it just is not permanent and doesn't leave any residue or is easily cleaned with a wipe. Some people use rubber cement but there is a trick to even application for very precise positioning and marking.

Proper term for the material you can mark and then cut out for spray masking is "frisket", which might help in a search. You can make a frisket yourself with paper and repositional adhesive or buy clear plastic self-adhesive frisket material by the roll. The plastic will take any marker or pencil and is designed to be cleanly cut with a knife without damaging the underlying paint surface.
