Since you are wanting to wrap it for a segmented body, why not use Larva Lace or Swanandaze in the color you want the body to be? Instant segmentation, semi-translucent, and very durable along with ease of application.
Go to any golf shop to buy the adhesive-backed lead tape. It comes is various sized rolls and it is pretty inexpensive.
You should be able to get the Larva Lace or Swanandaze at Urban Angler (I finally remembered the name) right there in New York City.
