I saw an article awhile ago on how to make your own Redscale film, so I thought I’d share it with you all :)
It’s really simple to do; firstly, get two films and empty the canister by pulling out the entire roll and cut it off leaving about an inch or so on there (seems like a waste I know but it’s worth it), then cut the leader off the other film and sellotape it as neatly as possible to the other film you just cut, just make sure you taped it upside down then go in a darkroom or a changing bag but I did mine just under a blanket and wind the film from one canister into the other.
Once the film’s at the end, you can now pull the film out a little bit and cut it off again leaving an inch or so, so you can use that empty film to do another Redscale without wasting another entire roll. You then just cut a new leader on your reversed film and go out and shoot!
I used 200 film to make my redscale and shot it at 50iso in my LC-A, if you want to use it in another camera such as the Fisheye etc. use 400 film.
