  • After fixer it is safe to bring your film into the light, so take the lid off the tank and take your reel of film out.
  • Place the reel/film into the WASH TUBE.
  • Let the flowing water wash your film for at least 5 minutes.
  • Carefully (because other film might be on top of yours) remove your reel.

B&W Film Developing
  • Put the reel/film into a tank filled with PHOTO FLO. (everyone will use the SAME tank of photo flo--no lid is necessary)
  • Swirl it in the photo flo for 5-10 seconds.
  • Remove the reel from the photo flo.
  • Carefully, take your film off of the reel.
  • Carefully, squeegee the excess water and photo flo off the film with your FINGERS over the SINK (not the floor!).

  • Once the excess water is off, take the film into the classroom.
  • Put your NAME on a piece of masking TAPE.
  • Tape your film to the bar in the white film closet at the back of the room.
  • It will take about 15-20 minutes for your film to completely dry. You’ll know it’s dry when it curls as it hangs.
