Fuji Image Transfer Technique

Postby miller » Mon 03 January 2011 / 21:21 pm

Fuji Image Transfer....

At hand a pair of scissors, hard roller, safelight and paper of choice which I will go into later.

Darken the room and keep the safelight away from the action. Once I pull the image from the slide printer (if you do not have a printer keep the image in the camera until ready to transfer obviously) I've got 16 to 18 seconds to cut away the edge of the print that still holds the chemical residue (too messy when left in situ). Peel and drop the negative side onto the awaiting paper and roll hard and evenly for 40-50 seconds.  All the rest can be done with the lights on and after around another 30 seconds depending how I want the image to look, peel away....

Now paper of choice for moi is Fabriano 5, 300 gram hot press which is very smooth being 50% cotton and watercolour. It can be bought as a pad (Fabriano RKB Fat Pad) and that way cost effective at 2 prints a page. A lot of peeps like Arches 88 but I didn't get on with it... The whites have a yellow cast but I can live with that.

Hi Miller, thanks for the tutorial.

Could you give me more informations about the begining of the process. I did not really understood the "slide printer" process.. can you please give more detailled informations ? What technique/material/machine do you use for this ?

Thanks again.

Slide Printers

Postby miller » Tue 04 January 2011 / 19:57 pm

Okay, as regards the 'slide printer' there are 3 quite available models I know about..

The Polaroid Polaprinter, Daylab Jr and the Vivitar Slide Printer.

Each will copy the image of a 35mm slide or neg' onto a Polaroid/Fuji peel apart at the press of a button... There are differences between the three machines i.e. the Daylab Jr enables you to mix the colours to get the look you want but plenty of info on the web if you need it.

I myself have used the Daylab Jr and the Vivitar machines.

I want to ask if it is necessary to do it in darkroom in all films, or there are films that you can do it on day light? I have tried with the fuji and what I have taken is a green paper. Is that because wasn't dark?,

Thanks

this is it, it has to be dark when you separate the negative. once the nagative is pressed down onto the receiving paper, you can switch on the lights.

there is a different base for the polaroid daylab which is for 4x5 films. it is hard to find, but it exists.

the fuji film negative is to be transfered to dry paper. both, polaroid and fuji, have to be neutralized in a slightly acid water solution for a minute and then rinsed for 3 or 4 minutes in plein water. hope it helps.

that's partly correct. the polaroid 669 is less sensitive to light after the development has started. so you can do it if you are very quick and nearly no light hits the negative itself i.e. you "roll" the negative onto the paper and "roll" away the positive in one quick movement. but it's safer to do it in the dark.

the fuji has to be done in the dark anyway. keep in mind that the fuji transfer has to be done to dry paper with more pressure. roll hard for 45 seconds with a brayer and then rub another 45 seconds with your palm. peel off. dont wait any longer or the transfer will turn green.

both procedures require neutralizing. see above.
