    Do you heat the mixture or anything? I tried a few but didn't get any colours as good as this.

    @jazz_cafe: I usually only boil films after development (the lab would be likely to notice something's amiss otherwise...).
    This film was first shot normally - taking mostly sky/cloud pics - then rewound and soaked for two days in lemon juice & Fairy liquid before going into the Vivitar UW&S for the Angel photos.

    So: longish soak and double exposures. The film might have been boiled too at some point, can't really remember, but I don't think so.

    Ah thanks for that! I didn't really leave mine to soak for very long so that must have been the problem.
