This is a wonderful photo! The colors and the softness of the photo are great. Also, the process that you went through sounds so interesting.
:D great work

That is quite a list of things you did to it there. Are these all tried and tested processes, or did you simply do whatever came to mind?

I'd say it is an experiment based in logic :) The sun is very wintery right now, and the light and air are very cold which cause the photos to take on a bluish purple tone, which I didn't want. I wanted both of these to be very warm and almost orange/red which was not possible with the weather conditions, so I had to think about what I had that might be able to 'dye' them or wash them. I originally wanted to use coffee but I have none (blasphemy :omfg:) so I opted for tea instead, and then I used some of the vinegar to balance the chemicals out. I'm not sure what would happen without it, but I think the boiling water would probably wash the picture away. As far as inversing it for the picture you see now, that is because the chemical side was the only part exposed to the dye. The top of polaroids have that plastic film that prevents it from being dyed, so I had to take it from the back to get the color :)

You had no coffee? ......:cries:

That was certainly a good read and interesting to see how you achieved the piece, keep the experiments going.
