    hi copperrein

    i haven't done the 6 month thing, but the 7 hours in a camera thing
    ( kind of the same but different )
    you get 1 scan out of it, and it starts to get grey ...
    you put it in a drawer dark as night, and it will turn grey too ...

    i haven't done it, but making a copy neg ( using a camera )
    will preserve it better than any other method ...
    i just convert mine into numeric-ephemera ... :whistling:

    i also have sistan ( AG STAB ) that i was going to
    soak them in to see if it would convert the stain ( sun stain/image )
    into something that lasted a little longer, but my bottles of the curious liquid
    are still unopened in a box full of shipping peanuts :smile:

    have fun !
