a bar in heaven

my first ry with the polaroid emulsion lift technique to create double from polaroid shots. if you want to know more take a look here: www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XsTh4OR…
big THANKS A LOT! goes to laura @laurasulilly for introducing me the technique and helping with questions. this is really another level of creating something. i´d say this is artwork. and it´s really great fun. but it takes time. btw: the fresher the polaroid shot, the easier you can do it. that´s my experience. because for getting to know how it works i lifted one old polaroid and this wasn´t as easy as the new ones.

    @laurasulilly i already have a plan for a next one. i really hope it´ll work. und 1000 dank nochmal. bei der gelegenheit: machst du auch scans der einzelnen bilder? das habe ich hier nämlich total vergessen vor lauter "ich will das jetzt endlich machen!". das bar bild sah an sich nämlich richtig gut aus.

    its addictive, isn't it? i really like the whole technique because the final product is 100% your own- your shots, your concept, your work, your art, you know? und zum scannen: ja, das mache ich- das ist sogar meine nummer 1-regel: immer vorher scannen! ich hatte ein paar wirklich schöne bilder, die mir beim liften kaputt gegangen sind (kann immer mal passieren, aber mir passiert es mittlerweile zum glück fast garnicht mehr) und das war sehr traurig, die zu verlieren...

    Very NIce! I just ordered an old Polaroid so I can attempt polaroid transfers. I am drawn to the softness, the texture, and the interesting edges…
