How To Do A Polaroid Image Transfer – A Step by Step Guide
How To Do A Polaroid Image Transfer.
This one is a guide in how to do a Polaroid image transfer and if you are interested in this type of photography, then hopefully it will be of use to you – Enjoy:
The idea behind a Polaroid image transfer is to take the colour chemicals which are left over when removing the emulsion and transferring these colour chemicals to a new surface. This is a very simple process which takes only a few minutes. Put simply, when you take your Polaroid image and peel it away from the chemical sheet, you don’t discard the chemical sheet because this will be the thing that creates your image.
In order to obtain the final Polaroid, follow this process for obtaining a Polaroid image transfer.
- Take a polaroid photograph and peel the Polaroid apart once it has been given time to develop.
- Once done take the piece of polaroid that you usually throw away and place it (image/chemical side down) onto a sheet of paper or similar material.
- Next take the roller and use it to apply pressure to the back of the Polaroid. You will need to roll it back and forth for around 2 minutes.
- Finally lift the emulsion away from the paper and you will be left with a copy of the image which has now been transferred to the piece of paper.
That’s it, you are done, your final image will be transferred. Of course the image will not be a traditional photograph, but it will still give the disired effect and rememebr this is an alternative photography technique.
