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.  

that is the reason i mentioned the rabbit glue coating; with the glue it acts like a real inkjet-paper (so one can use all the paper one collected over the years .....:-).
And for the transparencies .... to coat the clear material is cheaper and if the negative is not ok, just in hot water and you can use it again.
On the other hand if money is not the point why messing around .... :-)
