Film Cocktail Overdoze


No matter how bad you treat your film it will always survive!

1. Put your film inside a cup.
2. Pour some cough medicine (about half of the film’s height when it’s lying down). Add some vinegar so that the film is completely submerged.
3. Throw in the following substances

  • Aspirin
  • Vitamin tablet
  • Allergy pill
  • A pinch of salt
  • Soda pop

4. Let the film enjoy its bath for 24 hours. Eww, stinky stinky!
5. Home development is highly recommended!

Results: Marvel at the ultra-cool splotches staining your images!

    Looks great! Did you expose the film before or after putting it in this glorious concoction?
