I fell in love with redscale films after I used the XR 50-200. I decided to make my own redscale .When I’m trying to red scale my colour films , I found it’s actually inconvenient that 2 films are required for the process and the taping part. So I tried to think of a method to redscale color film with just 1 film. I finally figured it out.
The things you will need are:
- 1 Film (the one you want to redscale)
- Dark room / Changing bag
The whole process must be carried out in dark room/changing bag (I do it under a blanket). First, remove the film from the canister.
And then, start folding it. Look at the photos above while doing it. Maybe you could try folding some parts of a developed film for a few times for practice.
After folding, wind them back into the canister. Push the film a bit harder when when the edge of the triangle is going into the can.
Remember to keep the film lead outside , or else you can’t load it into your camera. For the last step, load the film upside down. What you need to do is shape it with your scissors. Then, enjoy! So far, the film works pretty well with my Diana Mini.
