Film Soup

Lomographer @uglydarling didn't mind getting a little dirty with these instants by using lemon juice and disinfectant for an instant film soup. While it was not indicated how this tip was done, common household items can be mixed to form a special cocktail to dunk your instants into. Remember to do this while the photo is still developing, and please make sure to proceed with caution!

Instant Display

A branch or twig can be used to display your instants, too. Paint the twig white for a clean, minimalist look or make it pop by using bright neons or soft pastels. Home decor stores usually sell artificial tree branches, so you won't have to worry about breaking off anything for this tip!
