    DIY 'Polaroid' Film

    Hi guys
    Today I was thinking - DIY Polaroid type film.
    So far, I have this:

    Use Direct Positive film/paper
    Thickened monobath developer in foil pod
    = instant photo

    also:
    use normal negative film + monobath
    find way of image transfer between film and coated paper base.

    Could anyone add to these ideas, and maybe make this a reality.
    How would I go about transferring negative image to paper to form positive, and how would I make a thick monobath.
    Would colour be possible this way? (e6?)
    I will try to contact Impossible, Fujifilm, Ilford and some old Polaroid workers.

    Good night and Merry Christmas

    the New 55 project is heading down that way, there was a formula based on HC110 and household ammonia, you could try using methyl cellulose as a thickener, they suggested experimenting with KY jelly!
