Subject:  [Frameworks] Liquid Light onto clear 16mm - any tips?


Trying to paint "Liquid Light" photo emulsion onto clear 16mm leader.
exposing photograms etc, then hand processing. But the emulsion is falling
off by the time we get to fixer. Works slightly better with clear film that
has some emulsion already on it, but not much. Anybody have any better
experiences / tips to share? Maybe spraying a clear varnish onto the leader
first, or roughing up with fine sandpaper? or  . . .

Thanks Big!
