attack of the killer crystals

(The Impossible Project PZ 600. Left: After 3 days, with killer crystals. Right: Original shot.)

Formation of crystals has been a big issue with The Impossible Project's experimental PX/PZ 600 films. Since I like to do emulsion lifts I haven't really been affected - until I finally got to see them today. COOL!!

Of course, it would probably suck more if it hadn't just been a random snapshot of my fridge that was affected, but it just goes to show that scanning experimental materials is a really good idea - that goes for expired ones as well - because you just never know!

I could peel it now to stop the effect... but I think I'll just wait and see what happens!
