    I just decided to print 35mm to sell and have for my own. I will print my first ones tonight.

    Old papers last -- esp AZO...the slower the better! Might be due the heavy metals?

    I have drawn directly on the glass of the contact printing frame with a sharpie to do a little dodging. Usually part way thru the exposure.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    One reason I've been holding onto some Polaroid 665 -- so I can contact print the negatives. I do wish this film was still available.

    hi barry

    i shot a lot of 35mm slides
    and did just what you suggested ..
    they were kind of small, almost too small

    i got the idea a few years after i assisted a guy who put a 5x7 chrome
    of his wife in a glass frame in the kitchen window.
    it was beautiful, like stained glass ...
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details

    I still have a little Type 55 left -- the last time I hauled some out was for some still life images -- I solarized the negatives. Too much fun...but also chancy.

    I've been doing lumen prints and besides using objects I've tried some with 35mm negatives and yeah, they're small... played around w/a triptych of sorts but am still experimenting to come up with a final print. I've used Azo, in the sun it turns a peachish orange, and old Velox is great, turns a deep purple.
