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

*note.

 

My jawn fucked up because I used a new pack of 600 film straight out of the Fridge.

 

Will work better with room temperature equipment.

 

 

 

Try this:

Tools~

¬ Paper (or some smooth surface)

¬ A Polaroid that takes 600 film

¬ Scissors

¬ A brain that is willing to accept the fact that you may

fuck this up, but it's cool to try new things.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer2.jpg'>

1. Using 600 film, take a generic photo.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer3.jpg'>

2. Wait for image to develop, approx 2 - 3 minutes.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer4.jpg'>

3. Cut off ALL white border.

***different image***

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer5.jpg'>

4. Now you are ready to peel the image layer and chemical layer.

****This is where I fucked up****

I should have A) waited longer to develop and

B) should have let my film become room temperature.

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer6.jpg'>

5. This is the back black layer which will be attatched to the chemical layer.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer7.jpg'>

6. Gently peel apart the image from the photo chemical backing.

 

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer8.jpg'>

7. Place the chemical backing on a papered surface and peel developing from black back layer.

Be gentle not to rustle the checmical layer.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer9.jpg'>

8. Manipulate the checmical layer as you like on paper. This layer should peel off from the black backing and SHOLD be the same

consistency as a piece of double-sided tape.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer10.jpg'>

9. Use the photo for anything you'd like.

 

 

http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/12ozalbum/transfer11.jpg'>

10. In this event it came out with an awesome transparency.

 

 

 

 

 

GOOD LUCK!

tesser... have you tried to do poloroid transfers with Acetone? or will that not work? Just a curiosity question. I have not tried it yet and was wondering if you or anybody has tried this process.

I am only familiar with doing that with laser prints... and love it.. so I am just i would like to know if it would work with poloroids as well.
