4x5 film adaptor for 13x18 plate holder?
I have recently purchased an FKD 13x18 plate camera, with the intention of coating my own plates - I just need to cut some glass. The only problem is that I will only be able to coat plates in small batches - and I want to take lots of exposures. I have just ordered some ortho Adox 25 in 4x5 and was planning to (I read about this somewhere) lightly spray a blank plate with adhesive and stick on the film.
1) Has anyone tried doing this? If so, what sort of adhesive did you use? And
...Will the adhesive show when printing?
2) If this doesn't work do they still make film adaptors for plate holders?
Please forgive me, I'm new...sort of.
