    Hooray for the first lift!! :cheer:

    It's a blast, isn't it? :D

    You'll just find that it gets easier the more you handle the stuff. And I second Kara's question: how'd it go?? Did you like it?

    Okay, so I have a question for the experts on here. Which camera should I be on the lookout for to do these and would 669 film be the best for doing the lifts and transfers?

    A Vivitar slide printer. Lifts have to be done almost immediately after exposure of the film.

    I'm totally emailing that chick then and callin' her out. I'll find her webpage here in a minute. Only page I found with step by step stuff for image transfers and all she talked about how you needed to move quick right after exposure.

    I've been had....... twice now in one day too :cry: Heads are now gonna roll.............

    malachite:...bursts through door with ferocious terror....storms off into the night to seek his revenge on the people who have wronged him this day........the last day these people might have ever seen...... End scene, show [to be continued], roll credits..............

    Yeah I like to wait at least a day before I do my lifts :p Ive tried to do them straight afterwords, but the emulsion wasnt set enough and I just ended up wasting film :roll:

    Maybe she confused the lifts with the transfers :scratch:

    I'm thinking (uh oh) it's me that's got all this backwards now. Emulsion Lift, Emulsion Transfer, Poloroid Transfer. Three names, 2 different things?

    My head hurts. I'm just gonna stick with the SX-70 squishin' for now and let the grown ups do the lifting transferences of whatever.........

    :roll:

    :LOL: Poor little baby!!! I decided early on to use my own terminology and stick with it!! I've read about "image *lifts*", "Polaroid emulsion transfers", blah blah blah. I found it confusing, with the subtle sharing of terms. Personally, I want a LIFT to refer only to an emulsion lift (yeah, yeah, so it's *transfered* to another receptor surface, but must we split hairs?) and an image transfer to refer to the process of prematurely peeling apart the pos/neg and slapping the neg onto the receptor. PERIOD.

    I think we should collectively help each other here by sticking with the terms of image transfer and emulsion lift to keep that part simple! :wink:

    Oh, and SX-70 manipulation can still be called "squishing" if Malachite likes it that way. :p
