Tipster of the Week: Plastic Tattoo


Put on a little something different on your square shots for that interesting results! Our Tipster here will tell you how.

Fantastik Plastik Mask by pixiecorpse

  • Grab some dry transfer letters/graphics (available in sheets at stationary and craft stores) and a sheet of acetate used for ohp’s.
  • Cut the acetate in the same size as the holga’s 6×6 mask.
  • Rub your desired letters/graphic from the dry transfer sheet onto the acetate.
  • Tape the acetate mask (the finished product) on the 6×6 mask then replace it in the camera.

Make sure that the acetate mask is free of dust & fingerprints. Load with a 120 roll and start shooting! works best in daytime and with colourful subjects.

It is true then that the Holga has different masks for its variety of personalities one reason it is one of the most mysterious analogue cameras around and the reason why we love it so much.

We are always on the lookout for new Tipsters and you could have a stuffed Piggybank if any of your submissions is selected for next week! If you haven’t, then upload your tips here.
