Film Soup

Film Soup

My first soup. Most people soup their film before developement, I did it after. I already published these black and white shots. I made up a mixture of all kinds of stuff. So I don't know what the working ingredient is. I used soap, instant coffee and developer and I boiled my film in it and left it in the soup for 24h. Afterwards I washed it real hard. I think I got the coffee in the film. because: it does not come off. The streaks: I dropped pieces of film on top of eachother, So the soup could not reach all parts. The fingerprints: not removable. Were they already there and are the enhanced by the soup, or did I put them on the film during souping???? Actually:I don't know what I was doing. But right as we speak another piece of film is in similar soup.
