Ooh, this looks interesting...

Ok so you know I love a bit of low-tech photography, and a hankering after the old days of darkrooms but this one sounds too good to be true... and might just be one for the Coffee Lady to try...
Develop your film in coffee?
The fine folks at Photojojo posted a great tutorial on how to develop film using nothing more then instant coffee, vitamin C powder, washing soda, water, fixer and dishwashing liquid. Sound impossible? It really works! Check out the step-by-step tutorial on how to develop your film with these basic household products here. Happy processing! (reposted from a blurb.com blog post)
