After rewinding the entire spool of your 120 film, take it out and shake it a bit until the rolled layers became loose. Just be careful because much of your shots especially the few frames of the roll will be completely burnt. Hold the film in one hand and shake it again but this time under the sun or any artificial bright source and just have the loose layers of the backing paper absorb some of the light quickly like for a few seconds, this just is enough to get that leaks you wanted without completely washing out your shots and that’s it!
Enjoy trying and share some of your leaky 120 shots when you’re done!
