Redscale Your Prints By Using Instant Coffee and Tea

7

This is a very simple tutorial to make your Lomo prints looks like you shoot it with redscale film with just using coffee and some tea.

It is easy as ABC. Many people want to get Sephia Tone or Redscale Tone in their prints but it requires pricey chemicals such as Toner in order to get that tone. You can achieve that by doing some Do It Yourself by using Instant Coffee and some Tea. Most important is, its saves your money.

First, you need these materials;

  • Spoon
  • Developing Tray or any tray
  • Tea Filter
  • Instant Coffee
  • Tea or Teabag
  • Boiling water
  • Cup for mixing the solution
  • Any Photo Prints

Prepare a cup of boiling water. Add 3 tablespoon of Instant Coffee and a tablespoon of Tea. Mix them well. After that put the prints in the developing tray or any tray that will make the prints fully immersed in the solution. Pour the mixture in the tray and don’t forget to filter the solution and leave it for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, take out your print and wash gently the prints to remove excess coffee. Makes sure you wash it gently so that the print will not damaged. Hang it to let it dry. Voila, you will get the redscale print.
