Mark and Jay led the Emulsion Lift Workshop and it was a great success!
We were delighted to host the Emulsion Lift Workshop for The Impossible Project this past Saturday. Mark and Jay demonstrated the restored SX-70 and 600 series Polaroid cameras, the I-1 camera with ring flash and the Instant Lab Universal. The Emulsion Lift demo attracted guests of all ages, who could bring in photographs or have their portrait taken on the spot. Emulsion lifts are very easy to do, with some practice! The image is cut out of the instant film frame, soaked in hot water, and eased onto a piece of paper or the substrate of your choice. Come see examples and make your own lifts. You can still shop cameras and instant film at the in-store only Pop-Up through July 25!
