I am new at this post and I am so happy I found it!!! I've been doing my own developing for motion pic films and I guess I would like to try something a little bit more radical. I've been following some of the posts and I now thought about the possibility of doing my own MP film. I was able to do my own emulsion w Ag nitrate and K bromate and despite not being able to get a pretty pic, the crystals turned out to be ~3um (rough guess, using an infrared microscope). Anyway, after developing it looks very flexible and nice, but despite the fact that it did not crack or anything, it was very hard after a coat a piece of acetate. Well, 2 questions, 1. how could I make the emulsion more flexible (i am using home gelatin)? Can the same technique be used for super coating? Many many thanks.
