So I have rounded up all the ingredients for My first attempt at Caffenol C Film Developer.Â What is Caffenol C You ask? Well in essence it is developing your precious rolls of film in Laundry Detergent and Coffee! Yup, Homemade, green-ish developer, for super cheap!
This is the recipe I will be starting with (from the folks at Digital Truth)
Caffenol-C film developer
WaterÂ 8 oz (237ml)
Arm & Hammer Washing Soda 2Â½ tsp (level)
Vitamin C powder Â¼ tsp (level)
Instant Coffee Crystals 4 tsp (slightly rounded, NOT decaf)
The Fixer is regular Ilford Film Fixer
I will be documenting this experiment in detail and I will let you know how it all goes. This is however nothing but a teaser because I doubt that I will have a chance to get to this till sometime next week.Â Because it is a crazy weekend of awesome this weekend! It is Tanya & Barry nuptials day, where I plan on drinking heavily and groping my wife inappropriately in public. Perhaps I will make a drunken spectacle of myself by making some sort of heart felt slurred speech in which I profess nothing in particular over and over till someone (most likely my wife) hooks me with the proverbial cane and tears me away from the podium!
It will be fun! :)
