firing with paper

I have been asked if my long woodfiring kiln could be used as a furnace to
burn about 800 old examination papers whilst firng my pieces. I am aware
that paper contains a fair amount of Kaolin.

Does anybody _know_ if there would be any furry deposits at cone 10 - 14 ?

TIA - Tony
