Salted Film Soup! Hampstead B/W

This film was placed in tepid water with 5 tablespoons full of cooking salt. There were 2 films in the bowl. I left them there for 2 hours stirring occasionally. I left them to dry overnight then blasted them with the hairdryer in a dark bag in the morning. Whilst in the dark bag I crushed the films in my first until I heard them crack. An hour later I went shooting in my local area. At the time of loading they were sticky. I think left any longer they wouldn't have wound on, but also the high salt and water level which was still slightly damp may rust my LC-Wide :( .... lets see!

    This is lovely. I sincerely hope that the camera will survive.
    BTW, why not soup the film AFTER exposing it?
