If you are tired of sending your 35mm E6 film off to be cross processed by some expensive lab, here is a (nearly) free way off getting your local developer to do it for you!
All you need is:
Paper (preferably glossy).
I measured the size of the label on the canister, and then using these measaurements, opened a new file in photoshop and attempted to make a label that looks not all that different from that of the FUJI brand (making sure to state that it was made for C-41 chemicals and not E6). Then I printed the new label out on glossy paper, but before trimming to size, I covered the entire back of the the label with double sided tape. This is handy way of making your own sticky back paper for a fraction of the cost! Now all that was left to do was to line it up and smooth it down. I think it’s pretty convincing!
Here is a link to the label if you want to use mine:
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
