Thanks to companies like the Impossible Project, Polaroids have seen a massive resurgence in popularity. While Fuji and others have come out with other forms of “instant film” in recent years, Polaroid still seem to see the most demand. One advantage of using Polaroids, is that you can actually lift the emulsion from the backing and remount it onto pretty much any surface you like.
It’s not a quick process, but it is fairly straightforward. You just need to be careful. It opens up all kinds of creative possibilities for those who want to do something a little different with their Polaroids. Photographer Matt Day describes it as one of his favourite things to do with instant film. So, he put up a video going through the whole process from start to finish.
