Here's what happened.
I placed my original negative on a light table and used a 35mm camera with a 105mm macro lens on a tripod to take a photograph of the image. It actually worked except the contrast was little low on the duplicated negative/positive(whatever). White wasn't as white and black didn't get as black, so the dynamic range was much narrower.
I was able to bump up the contrast filter by one grade on printing and compensate. The result was very pleasing. The print is drying right now.
Thanks everyone for their ideas and recommendations. I never went the paper negative route.
