    That would work as well, but it would be a real hassle then to get regular prints from that roll haha.

    You can also print onto paper, and then contact print the paper to the litho film to conserve/save money as well. No real loss in sharpness, just longer exposures.

    This also reminds me I need to take those pics and post em.

    What I meant was to process the small format roll normally as a negative, then enlarge it onto a sheet of the ortho-litho film. If you processed that sheet normally, you'd get a positive image. Instead, reversal process the film enlargement to get a negative image instead of a positive image. Then you can contact that enlarged negative, cutting out the interpositive altogether. That's what Ed Buffaloe's article describes.

    Ah I just read the article, I have bookmarked it too for future use in my darkroom at home. The bleaching process might be a bit to dangerous in the darkroom I teach in though (kids from 6~17).

    Has anyone experimented with getting color (or just toned) images from this film using a low contrast developer?

    I hope it isn't too contrasty, I liked the way the old stuff looked when shot in-camera.

    The one with the toy lion actually has a sheet of the litho film displayed with it in the hallway, and to the right (not shown) is a regular positive print of it, and a print showing the negative on paper as well.

    Some came out better than others, but keep in mind that these are made by kids, I teach them the process, supervise, help along the way, and of course do a few demos first but they are the ones doing the photography and printing steps.

    Good stuff, Newt. Good for you. Good for the kids.

    How do I get "students?" I'd love to teach kids about analog photography.

    Well I kinda fell into it. I teach at a non-profit that is aimed at keeping kids off the streets and giving them help with school work and teaching them skills such as swimming, karate, basketball etc. Photography and digital media is the portion I teach, I've been there for about two years.

    You may try checking your community centers or googling photo clubs and asking. The job is fun but it can be very challenging at times. Maybe you can try volunteering too, which is how I started out aswell.
