    Anyone using Fuji Instant film for a Color Negative

    Post title about says it all. I have heard that some people are using the Fuji instant peel apart film and recovering a negative that can be printed in the darkroom or scanned. If so what kind of results are you getting and is it worth the effort. Can anyone steer me toward info on this process?

    I have not used it for printing, only for image transfers (peeling it apart early and rolling the negative onto a piece of paper). One thing I do know is that the negative remains very sensitive to light, so I think it would be very difficult.

    I have played with this a little, and while looking for information I found this blog entry that gives some very useful ideas (including the issue of the negative fading, to some extent).

    I love doing this. Here is a link to a video

    I would recommend taping the edges of negative to glass. Stops bleach from seaping under and messing with emulsion.
    Waiting for darkroom to open back up to try printing them so for now I just scan and print.

    "Bleach" is a very ambiguous designation.

    Which kind of bleach did he use?

    any kind of household bleach works fine, e.g. clorox, etc.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I've been carefully letting all my negatives dry and storing them to try it in the future.
