Just coat the paper with 'rabbit' glue and you will have all the details you need; btw you can also coat ordinary clear transparency material with this glue, easy, cheap and astonishing results.

John, re using cheap uncoated paper for paper negatives:
Doesn't work well, to my taste.You need a light coating on the paper to hold sharp edges; uncoated paper (a) tends to make a softer print and (b) tends to have more internal texture that can print. But thanks for the suggestion.
