Psychadelic Film Soup! Street Art Vs Dinosaurs!

I love to experiment and create interesting images rather than technically accurate photographs. This film soup was made by adding 2 cups of Asda Moonflower and Ylang Ylang washing powder to a bowl of tepid water. I dropped 2 films in and left them over night. I removed the films and transferred them to the airing cupboard for a further 2 days. The films were then left degrading in my room for about a month before I got round to shooting them. Before shooting I just used my hairdryer and dark bag to give them a quick blast. Despite the drying time the films had a stickiness too them which didn't really go. I shot this film once on my LC-Wide of images of Street Art in the Brick Lane and Shoreditch area of East London. I then transferred the film to my Pentax ME Super and shot the dinosaur exhibits at the Natural History Museum. When the film was finished I rewound, however to my dismay the film had come off the spool and I exposed it to the light. It took me a minute to get the back on before I considered most of the film had been destroyed. I don't know if these neon colours are as a result of the soup or my light leak. I find with the Pentax ME Super the film is wound so loose that a great deal of light may have penetrated this film. I have another film to develop from this batch so I will confirm the outcome after my next batch of processing which had no light leaks!
