    Makeshift Film Drying Clips

    Hello, I can't find any film drying clips for a decent price at the moment. I'm certainly not paying £10 for two clips, when I intend to process 8 films at a time. Are there any common household items that will do the same job of hanging/weighting? Cheers

    Try the "Dollar Store" or local equivalent for these:

    I use regular wooden spring-loaded clothespins.

    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    I'm also a fan of clothespins, just replace them frequently to avoid contamination!

    I use binder clips from the office supply stores. They don't grab as much of the film as clothespins, don't absorb water.

    Morrisons (UK supermarket) do a pack of freezer bag clips. Two large, and four small - I find the small ones ideal for hanging sheet film by the corners.
