Sounds like some good ideas. If you can find what you want, you can always print them on some lightweight paper then transfer that onto the deck with some tracing. I don't know about graphite carbon paper, but if you can't find something that works, build a graph of the original image and then a comparable graph on the deck and transfer the image by line segments within the graph. That's the way they teach kids to break images into reproduceable parts. It's very effective at getting a very close reproduction as long as your graph dimensions are consistent throughout the original and then throughout the repro.
Either way, if you're burning the image onto the wood, dark carbon paper won't hurt because you'll be tracing the line anyway, correct?
