and any idea on filtration? I assume I'd balance the paper density to neutral grey and then the exposure to black or maybe a stop or two beyond.
yes, try a "neutral" color pack (say the one listed in/ or on the box<at least on Supra endura, 65Y/55M>) post some results, I'll bet they'll be interesting .

btw, i've been thinking of trying this for a while, and making some diptych-style prints with it, one off, etc...

of course everything will reverse in color (green leaf--> magenta leaf in print...

in regards to the backprinting, try getting your hands on a roll of the fujiflex display material. I believe it doesn't have any backprinting whatsoever, due to the fact that it is intended for back-lit displays.


best of luck, and please post some examples when you have some ready to show
