Yes, it is possible. You can even use ordinary RC paper. Exposure times
are a bit longer. I've even made salt prints this way, and some of the
best gum prints I've seem have come from them.
Paper negatives are often waxed, though not RC paper. Some people manage
to peel the image from the backing of these.
There was also the 'waxed paper process' used particularly by the great
French calotypists (though Roger Fenton learnt it from them and used it
too, before changing to wet plate.) I'm not aware of anyone having much
success with this with modern papers.
