    yo chupacabra, hook me up man!

    i got that one step a couple of weeks ago, but its
    a piece of shioiaett. the images were blurred, and
    there was this overall purpley vibe goin' on.
    so now i have another shit one step coming..hopefully
    it works. somebody told me to get some black electrical
    and tape the shit out of it becuz light may be leaking in,
    is that possible?

    So what if the jawn is blurry! It makes for a more intersting photo.

    If the polaroid appears purple, you're using the camera and film pack in a cold environment. Let it warm up and try then.

    If you have a light leak, try to use it to your advantage. Once again, it cam lead to interesting photos.

    Never tried Polaroid Transfers.

    I've been meaning to buy different film types.

    I have tried this though.

    - Using 600 film, take a generic photo.
    - Having a pair of scisors handy, cut off the white border.
    - Gently peel apart the image from the photo chemical backing.
    - Place the chemical backing on a papered surface and peel developing from black back layer. Be gentle not to rustle the checmical layer.
    - Manipulate the checmical layer as you like on paper.
    - Use the photo for anything you'd like.

    Does anyone want a step by step visual instruction?

    *edit: wait... okay, maybe this IS a transfer
