Polaroid transfers?
I just bought an old polaroid camera at a thrift store. I want to try and some polaroid transfers. I don't have the peel-off film, just regular Polaroid 600

Could sombody give me a quick and easy answer on how to make a transfer?

Also if you know of any other cool stuff stuff I can do with polaroid, please tell me. Polaroid was never introduced as a medium in my photography class but I want to surprise my professor with some polaroid pictures in my next critique.

Polaroid has some techniques on their website too.

I don't know if this link will work, but here it is. If it does not search for type 59 film and look for the Films for Creative Techniques link.

I'm thinking the real thing would be much neater-

of course, I could have probably done this better, too-

thanks for bringing up the subject-

polaroid discontinuing sx-70 film?-

might not be able to use 600 for transfer-

maybe your camera will take another film that will transfer-
