    Someone did that with some IR film on flickr, and it worked, they didn't lose the IR sensitivity.


    People say lucky b&w doesn't have antihalation, not sure if that's true or not.

    Another vote for Polypan F 35mm, its finer grained than Efke IR820, Lyckies and so on.
    Its offered as bulk in cans, whatever lenght You need and that means You have to roll Your own.
    Some folks say its the industrial version of Ilford Pan F (sans antihallation).

    If you roll your own film from bulk, I think you could make it easier on yourself. Just roll a very small number of frames worth (like 3 frames). Why would you want to shoot through 24 or more for a specific effect anyway? Before you use the film, wash it in the paterson, then rig up a dark place like a changing tent (plenty of room if you have a really short segment of film). Maybe put in something really dry with the film (plate of salt, dry sponge?) in the changing tent to absorb moisture, keep the humidity down.

    Of course, your ratio of frame to leader goes to hell, but just how many "glow effect" shots do you plan to make anyhow, before it becomes a cliche in your portfolio?

    Orthochromatic film would work best for the "halo" effect. It can be handled under a proper safe light instead of total darkness, plus it tends to glow a bit anyway.

    As far as washing black and white film goes, there are no "dyes" to wash off except for the AH, so it should work. Sheet film would be by far the easiest. Trying to roll up film that has been washed and dried without damaging it sounds a lot to me like trying to stuff toothpaste back into a tube, but I dunno fer sure, ya? Somebody try it!!!

    For 35mm or roll film, a PVC tube with spacers/holders for the film on both ends + light/water traps should do it.
    Load the film in the tube, fill it with distilled water, dump, refill as you like, then remove the light traps and a drying cabinet with holders for the PVC tube should let it dry, even if it might take some more time than normal.
    If You care to try TriX or Tmax wihtout the AH, probably the above might work..lol

    so does prewashing do anything to sensitizing dyes, or not?

    It seems reasonable that they wouldn't wash out that readily, seeing as they're adsorbed to the silver crystals quite tenaciously. AH dyes on the other hand are designed to wash out as easily as possible.
