Polaroid transfer is one of the image transfer technique known since '60s. I once tried it in mid '80s as an experiment.
The image in the title column on top is the one of my first transfers I did in around 1985.
It's an image of the Art Deco style hotel in Miami Beach. I think I made about 20 or so transfers then but this is the only one
I have now and I don't remember what happened to the rest of them.
In 2008, I started to do it all over again as my art work. However the production of the type 669 film ended in around the same time so I had to switch to use Fuji instant film FP100C which is the same type of peel-apart instant film.
All the photos used for these transfers were taken by me over the years. I have been taking photos since I was in high school as an amateur then as a professional since 1968.
The transfer process is relatively simple but it's not easy to get good results.
I have been doing it since 2008 so I can say I'm an expert yet my success rate is about 1 out of 5 or so.
You might get very nice one on your fist try or you may not get anything at all for the whole pack of film. I must say it's very much depending on one's luck.
If you are interested in trying it, please check Google> Polaroid transfer or Fuji transfer for the tutorials with photos or videos.
You could find Polaroid type 669 in eBay but they are awfully expensive and all are expired long time ago so it's quite risky to try.
Unfortunately, on 2/28/2016, Fujifilm announced ending of the production of the FP100C film.
You can still get the film in the stores but the price has already gone up to $19 in the stores in New York City (as of 3/2016) and far more expensive in eBay.
The price of the film will go higher as the store stock becomes fewer and eventually all will be gone within a year or less, I suppose. So if you wish to try it, this is your last chance.
* Oh oh, I was totally wrong. The film is all gone from the stores in New York ,nada,zip!!!
I hope you'll find one in where you live. Good luck! 3-28/2016
** Good news is that you can find FP100C film in eBay from $19 ~ a pack now.
It looks like the price has been settle down, at least for now. (It was like over $30 at one time) as of 3-5/2017
*** Too bad the prices gone up again $26~ as of 8/2017
**** I did Fuji transfer on 10/10/2018 using 2 packs of my stock that were the last ones. Now all gone!! So what will I do next?
Find Fuji FP100C in eBay? but all the films are now expired and very expensive(around $50 a pack!!) .
