An attempt to give my discarded off cuts a new lease of life by chemically altering them forever. Mwahahaha…
I find myself often surrounded by rolls of negatives that I’ve left kicking around under the computer after scanning in rolls of film, off cuts, bad shots, that sort of thing. I decided to try and give them another chance to impress me by dropping them in the kitchen sink then pouring bleach over them thinly, in swirly patterns…
It’s important to quickly rinse it off with cold water within a few seconds as it acts very fast and will just completely strip the film if left on for more than 10-15 seconds. You can also add a tiny bit to hot water and pour that on to them to get a more subtle effect. I dried them out on the line before scanning them in as the emulsion was pretty sticky on the back for about 15 minutes.
It’s brought a bit of life to a bunch of pics I would otherwise never have seen the light of day.
Have fun, and be careful! Bleach is horrid stuff, especially if you rub your face with your bleach covered hands (ouch).
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
