Colorize your Photos with an Energy Drink!

5

Do you want your photos to look extraordinary? Do you want to find something new? Then get your energy drink from the nearby grocery and add your photos Smurf's Blue flecks!

On the internet I saw a few people’s experimental works tagged “damaged film” and “boiling film”. But no one has tried with energy drink before, and I had a lot of films waiting to processed. Besides that, I was excited about a new experiment.

Into a deep cup, fill it with your very acidic energy drink on a level with film container. Than put the film that you have developed before, into a cup. Mix it unless the air stuck in the container. Wait 3 minutes while the container in the cup. Than it’s time for rinsing. Empty the cup and fill it with water. Than shake it well and hit from the bottom for stuck air. Repeat the washing operation until the water transparent. As a final, leave it for drying into a sunny place. And voila! Now you have Smurf’s Blue flecks on your photos!

While the experiment I chose a negligible film, because I wasn’t quite sure about the result. The other experiments I’ve looked on the internet people used undeveloped films and shoot photos after the film dried. But my results are clean-cut too :) I hope you enjoy your flecks :)
