Quench Your Film


Was experimenting on a roll of 35mm, and soaked it in Coke and Vinegar…
Didn’t have to do this a dark room just left the roll in the Coke for about 10 minutes…
It shows up alot better on some photos than others…

Take your roll of 35mm film, and place it a cup of coke for 10 minutes (i’m sure other film will work but i used 35mm)…
Take out later, and then leave in a dry place, but idealy not in the sun because it might cook your film depending on where you are in the world. Take it to your lab, and look at the results! Here are some of mine…

Not sure why the landscape of London is slightly sepia, no photoshop, might have been the vinegar.

    Yeah, can't really capture what you're saying without the pictures. By the way how long did it take to dry the film?

    yeah, where are the pics, and did you wash off the coke later? I don't think I'd dare to do anything because of how sticky and sugary Coke is, I wouldn't want it to stick/leak in my camera.

    not very big effect, but still quite brave to not wash it off afterwards..
