Experiments with film – My first Polaroid emulsion lift

Since I’ve been using the Polaroid camera I’ve been experimenting with the Impossible film. One things I’ve always wanted to try is the emulsion lift. So, armed with paintbrushes, trays of water and thick fine art rag paper, here’s my first attempt. I really like the result: a textured, delicately “painted” surface and a one of a kind piece of art.

  • Susan Stayer - This looks great! And on your first attempt! I haven’t tried it yet with Impossible Project film, but I’m planning to give it a shot.ReplyCancel

    • Daphne Chan Photography - Thanks Susan! It’s not difficult to do but requires time and a very delicate touch. Please let me know when you try it!ReplyCancel
